Yesterday, I mentioned a recent discovery that caused considerable disappointment. 

Let’s talk about it.

Weight Loss: When You’ve Already Been There And Done That, But It Hasn’t Worked.

Like many things worth achieving in life, losing weight takes dedication, patience, and consistency. You must continually work on your weaknesses and bad habits, all while keeping yourself motivated enough to not give up when things get tough.

It is so important to stay positive throughout the duration of your weight loss journey, but sometimes, this is much easier said than done.

If you are like me and have struggled to lose weight time and time again, it can be so hard to start over. However, this can apply to repeated attempts to reach any goal, not just weight loss.

Doin’ It For: The French Riviera

For some, the road to weight loss can be a long and bumpy one.

*Raises hand*

Committing to your long-term goals, whatever they may be, can require a significant amount of focus, determination, and resilience. When the going gets tough and you start to question how you’ve found yourself where you are, it’s extremely important to keep in mind all of the reasons you wish to pursue the goal you’re chasing.

For me, it is a daily necessity to use my intended future life as a source of motivation and inspiration. Opposed to focusing on my present situation and weight (which isn’t going to drastically change anytime soon), I try my very best to regularly use my imagination as a weight loss tool.

Each and every day, I call to mind all of the things I plan to do and all of the things that will change for the better once I reach my goal weight. This practice has helped me immeasurably, so from time to time, I would like to share the dreams that help keep me on track.

One of the major things I want to treat myself to once I reach my goal weight is a trip to the French Riviera. 🇫🇷 🌊 🛥

A Not So Simple Fear: Shorts

Everyone has something they are afraid of:

Snakes.

Heights.

Spiders.

Death.

When it comes to body image, I have many deep-seated fears. As I go through my day to day life and these insecurities are brought to mind, I would like to share them with you. I think it would be interesting to take a look at these fears more closely, and see if anyone else out there feels the same way.

Today, I would like to make it known that I am afraid of wearing shorts in public.

Dream Catcher. (A Poem)

Hi, everyone. 

Today I’ve decided to post something a little different. I hope you guys don’t mind.

If you aren’t familiar with some of the content I post on my personal blog, I sometimes like to write poems that reflect the things I’m going through. Although writing is typically my preferred method of communication, there are times when it becomes quite difficult to articulate my thoughts and feelings outside of some form of poetry.

Perhaps this is weird. Perhaps I’m weird.

Anyhow, today is one of those days because I’m not feeling particularly cheerful or optimistic about my weight loss journey.

I Won’t Be Able To Walk Tomorrow, But It’s Worth It.

I woke up yesterday morning as sick as a dog. Unable to get out of bed, I slept in much, much later than normal. This set my entire day back by several hours.

By the time I felt decent enough to actually get something done, it was already nighttime. So instead of worrying about working out, I stayed up until early in the morning, trying to catch up with things I’ve not had much time for lately.

Four hours later, I was back up and feeling much better.

It was time to make up for the workout I’d missed.
