Every great story starts with a defined beginning. Every journey starts with the first step. Life is a series of journeys. Starts, stops, beginnings, and ends. The weight loss journey is no different. Everyone’s journey is the same but very different. Most of my life was and still is filled with journeys around trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
What does the beginning of a journey to lose weight look like? Simply put, it’s a desire to lose weight and get healthy. It’s a thought, a choice, and a decision. Day one is the starting line.
How we got to this decision to lose weight can be an array of different reasons. Maybe we have been overweight for years due to going through a rough patch in life. Some of us might have a food addiction where food controls our thoughts and feelings. Maybe you had a child and can’t seem to find time to get off those pounds, or maybe your doctor said your life is in jeopardy if you don’t.
Whatever the reason, just make the decision to begin and begin day one. There are tons of ways, theory’s and products out there that might help. The health, weight loss and fitness industry is huge and full of gimmicks. I will do my best to share ideas, opinions, and encouragement to help come along side and partner with you on this journey.
Lastly, remember, no one is perfect. Don’t expect yourself to be, and that’s OK. Every journey has some pot holes, and this trip will be no different. Relax, you can do this. Let’s just watch and see how it goes.
