There are a lot of things in this world that are copies of something else. Don't let yourself be one of them.
At work, at home, at school or where ever you may be, society wants us to be little carbon copies of an ideal. My Grandma used to say: "If God made us all the same, this world would be a very boring place."
If you try to be someone you are not, I can assure you -- you will fail.
Today, fight to be yourself. You are the only one who can do that. Be the best you that you can be.
One of my team tasks today is to write a blog on my progress.
To date, I have lost 18 pounds & 14 inches (since June 8, 2012). Progress has been slow, but that's ok. Slow is still progress. They say if you do it slowly, you're more likely to keep it off & that's fine with me!! Once I lose it, I don't want it back!!
This journey has not been easy -- there are some hard days -- but it hasn't been super hard either.
There are days I just don't feel like doing it, but I decided to do this because I don't ever want the cancer to come back. That is a huge motivator for me.
I am exercising more & eating healthier foods.
More important than the weight & inch loss is the way that I feel. Wow! I feel strong!! I have some girl muscles in there!!
It'll be awhile before I find my "undercover 6-pack" but that's ok. I'll get there eventually.
I have more energy & feel more alert. Exercise is such an amazing mood-booster.
Best of all, my dear sweet hubby tells me he's proud of me. That's the best non-scale victory EVER!!
