It's important to me that you know that this is hard. Losing weight is hard. Changing your life is hard.
Sometimes it's day by day - but most of the time it's a minute by minute struggle. It's deciding to make the right choice every single minute of everyday. And the truth is - sometimes I fail. Sometimes I don't feel like drinking water - so I skip it. Sometimes I feel like eating extra at dinner - and I do. Sometimes I just HATE the gym - so I skip it.
Those times are VERY rare though. I find myself spending a lot of time trying to convince myself to make the right decision. And MOST of the time it works.
It's a constant struggle.
The truth is though - every time I made the right decision (no matter how small) - I feel more empowered to make the right decision the next time. And the next.
And it's worth it.
