For those you out there who are on this journey of weight loss, it’s important to understand that it isn’t just about the weight you’re shedding. You’re winning a battle for your life, your mental state, and a healthier YOU! Take it one day at time. The weight didn’t come on overnight, and it won’t go away over night. Stay consistent and committed and you will reap great rewards. Put up pictures of what you looked like when you started your journey. Put them on your mirror in your bathroom, on the steering wheel of your car, on the refrigerator handle, or even at your desk at work. Next to that picture, have your daily, weekly, and monthly goals on an index card. This will help you to stay focused and committed to something that is for YOU!


If you ever need to talk, need a coach, or just need a friend to go through this with you, here is my contact information: healthieryou09@gmail.com.

Till next time, stay committed!

In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
