I feel like every weight loss success story I read about starts with a breaking point. You hear how one day they saw themselves in a photo or something and just snapped, and everything changed.
I feel like I’ve been on a weight loss journey forever. In truth, it’s really been just over a year since I recommitted myself to caring about myself, my body, to how I look and how I feel.
There have been some high points and low points, and certainly some successes and failures.
While recently I’ve seen some great success in max weights and lifts, I feel like I’m seeing a pretty serious backslide in my weight loss goals. The number on the scale is consistently going up, and while I would love to say it’s from all the muscle I’m building, that would be a lie. It’s because my diet has been anything but clean, and I’m paying the price by gaining weight.
This stops today.
I’ve said it a few times over the past week, but wasn’t strong enough to truly commit it to myself. But I am now. Today I woke up knowing exactly what I wanted out of today, out of myself, and out of my goals. Today I woke up ready to accomplish everything that I know I’m capable of.
So I will. It’s really that simple.
