The scariest moment is just before you start. The rest is easy!
Rewind 11 yrs ago when I first started out on my journey. I was overweight, I had no idea what it truly meant to eat healthy, I was completely out of shape, and I was absolutely unhappy for just letting myself go. I sorta fell in that mindset of, “oh, I am a mom and this is just how it supposed to be.” But deep down, I wanted more. I wanted to put on clothes and not feel frustrated because I didn’t like the way I looked. I wanted to have a body that my husband could be proud of (yes, I know he loved me in spite of the way I looked, but I was not happy). I wanted to have the energy to keep up with my girls (who were 2 and 6). I wanted to have more confidence and just feel better overall.
And, after a dr visit, I finally decided enough was enough!!! I knew if I wanted change, I, not anyone else, but ME, was going to have to be the one to make change.
And let me tell you, I was scared as hell - I mean how many times did I try to do this and wind up quitting? Where was I even supposed to begin? How was I going to manage with two littles and a hubby that was off coaching most of the time? How was I gonna know this time would be different?
All these thoughts constantly (and still do) crossed my mind. But I knew, all that I could control, were MY choices. The fear of not knowing is always going to be there but I can still control what I do or don’t do.
So don’t let fear hold you back. It’s not always going to be easy but it IS possible. You just have to take that first step and JUST keep going!
And surround yourself with people that can support you - being part of my accountability groups has been one driving factor, especially lately, that has kept me going!
