The Formula To Getting Results Is Simple
I was always a chubby girl, pretty much my entire life. Well at least for as long as I can remember. As a little girl I knew I was chunky, not because I came to that realization on my own, but because I was teased on a daily basis (literally) for my weight. When I would walk by friends or family members they would make pig noises or make up songs about my weight. At the age of 8 I was seeing a nutritionist who put me on a VERY strict diet and had me wear ear seeds, (as if the horrible remarks weren't embarrassing enough as it is, now I was wearing ear seeds to really give people a reason to call me fat. Those things were like a huge billboard that said, "HEY, LOOK AT ME I'M FAT!")
By the time I got to 5th Grade, I was avoiding food altogether. Food, seemed to be the issue for my weight problem so why not avoid it altogether right?? I did lose a significant amount of weight because of it, but it was in the worst way possible. I started paying the price for it when I started my fitness journey..
I don’t say this to receive pity, I talk about it because if this was my mentality at the age of EIGHT, I know for a fact that there are many men and women who think that starving themselves or eating almost nothing is the answer to their weight loss problem.
IT ISN'T! If you didn't know that before this post, now you do.
I won't sit here and tell you that I'm still not easily triggered when someone points out my weight or that I don't think about 8 year old me and how ugly I felt at such a young age. It was traumatizing to say the least.
I'm 23 now with a completely different mentality. I have a new found love for fitness and nutrition, not only because of how much I've been able to transform my body but because every single day I get to see what it’s doing for others.
I'm not an expert by any means, I only speak from what i have been able to accomplish in hopes of helping others achieve their goals.
I still struggle a lot to this day, but I can say that I am a lot stronger not only physically but also mentally.
You are in control.
You are in control of what you put in your body
You are in control of your schedule and the time you put aside to workout
You are in control of your health
And you are in control of your thoughts
You can let the discouraging words of others make or break you, and wallow in self-pity or you can stand up for yourself and do something about your situation.
So, you want to know the formula to getting result?
Put in the work.
That’s it. Plain and simple.
I'm not saying it's easy and I'm not telling you something you don’t already know.
If you want results, you have to work at it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY especially on the days when it's the last thing you want to do.
If you’re anything like me, maybe you just needed a reminder.
So here I am, reminding you that YOU CAN get the result you want and YOU CAN have that dream body.
It doesn't matter how old or young you are, you are more than capable!
