I always wanted to lose weight fast.
I had this idea that if I just lost my 100lbs., everything would change.
I’d be happier, sexier, make more money, find a man, and essentially every dream would come true.
The problem with my thinking was this. I set myself up to hate where I was and not like myself.
I constantly found problems with myself, thought about how miserable I was when I ate healthy, and dwelled on how wrong my life was.
I falsely accused my weight of being the perpetrator of my misery.
It was ME doing it. Me drumming up drama instead of just saying NO to being an asshole to myself.
I didn’t have to beat myself up because I weighed 250lbs. I easily could have simply said, “I refuse to keep thinking this.”
I didn’t have to hate eating healthy. I could have just thought, “This is my choice to lose weight and live longer.”
No one told me that weightloss would only change the number on the scale. I would have to be the one who changed my life and what I thought about it.
When I figured out that I needed to practice patience with myself and weightloss…everything changed.
Patience is not about waiting.
True patience is keeping a good attitude while you wait.
I learned how to do it and in today’s podcast, I share with three steps to go from frustratingly wanting it now to patiently getting to your goal.
