What used to be & What next…
After posting that bikini picture yesterday, I realized that maybe I should have thrown out that horrendous looking before picture…the picture where I felt like a whale, felt so worthless and was so depressed at the time. Yes, the “after” picture took some time to get there, but was it worth the getting up at 4:30am to hit the weights and treadmill at the Y (remember this was pre-CF 🙂 ), hell yes it was. It takes consistency, discipline and hard work to reach the goals that you really desire.
Did I really want it? Yes…I wanted to have more energy…I wanted to look better…I wanted to be a better example for my own kids and the kids that I was teaching PE to. YES, I was a PE teacher/coach and I vividly remember my @$$ sitting down IN a chair during one of my PE classes at Trinity telling my kids to run laps, telling them FROM THE CHAIR to do their exercises…because I didn’t have the energy to stand up and lead them. At that point, I said “this is ridiculous and something needs to be done”…So December 9, 2009, I took the dreaded before pic…back then we didn’t have the fancy phones to take pictures, so I had to set up a timer on my digital camera with film (do y’all know what that is? 😉 ) and click, there I was 🙁 Had the film developed and was embarrassed to go and get them because I knew whoever got them from the machine probably saw them.
So I’ve been there, the feeling of worthlessness, nothing will work for me, what diet or pill can I take now to help me, it takes too much energy so I’m just not going to try, my family loves me just the way I am, and the list goes on and on. But again, the journey was completely worth it because I was able to change my MINDSET and how I felt about ME; not what others thought of me (even though the outpouring of support was amazing!). I was finally able to stick to a program and feel good about what I was doing. I want that for YOU as well!
Where are you right now? Stuck? Feel like the road is too long so why even bother? Well, what if I would have stayed stuck back in 2009? I definitely would not have been where I am today, I am VERY confident of that AND you would not be reading a Blog post from me right now. I still find things surreal and that I am even living this life right now. All the glory to God and my faith in keepin’ on…
