A few weeks ago I had a really deep conversation with an really awesome friend. We were discussing weight loss and our past and present journeys and what may or may not be holding us back. I believe deep down that one reason I ended up back sliding in my weight loss before was a fear of succeeding. Believe it or not that is very common in the weight loss world. But I don’t think that is what keeps holding me back from successfully restarting my journey. Through this conversation I determined at this point in my life it wasn’t a fear of succeeding that was holding me back rather a fear of failing again.
So many things have changed in my life since I made that first journey. I am a wife. A mother. A tech lead. My responsibilities have grown exponentially but I can’t use that as an excuse to drop the responsibilities I owe to myself. To take care of and nurture my body so that it will take care of me in the long run. I hope you will join me as I try to turn a new leaf and discover how to balance my life and figure out who I am in this new and amazing world I have created.
