But it's not that easy.
For instance, if you say you want to lose 30 lbs in the upcoming new year, and one month later, you only see 10 lbs chopped off, you sort of feel discouraged and then perhaps fall back into your old routine. But if you think on a long-term scale of how long it took to gain the 30 lbs, then maybe it'll help you realize that as much time as it takes to gain weight, will actually take the same, if not more time to lose the weight. Nobody has patience.
I wanted to die.
I needed help.
I get a lot of people asking me, "Deb, why are you so incredibly open with this personal stuff?"
And that's our foundation.
Throw those resolutions out the door and work on you every single chance you get. And if you fail, remember that there is no such thing as failure. There's only more chances to get it right the next time around.
