Hi Everyone !
It’s been a while since I have posted, so I wanted to share what has been going on these past couple of months. This May I finished my undergraduate career and finally graduated college with a B.A. in Psychology. As you can imagine, that has caused me to be extremely busy. But I have noticed an overwhelming amount of creativity building up in me and I realized how much I missed posting. With that said, I will be posting again, so I’d love your continued support! Thank you in advance. I wanted to share some thoughts that have been on my mind lately.
I am 21 years old, and have recently decided I need to take my health more seriously, beginning with losing weight. I know this can be a controversial topic, and I hope that we can just be positive here. As most people have experienced, losing weight is beyond difficult. I am working with my best friend’s mom who is a personal trainer, and one of the most encouraging people I’ve ever met. With her help, I have begun to change my eating habits (an insane 180), and started becoming more active. However, beginning this journey was not an easy feat. And I am only one week in.
By no means am I trying to promote that I am a fitness guru with all of the answers to weight loss and health. If I was, I would not be needing to lose such a substantial amount of weight. I am just a normal girl, with varying health issues, that is on a journey. I believe it is important for us to encourage and support one another no matter what path we are one, so I hope my words can encourage at least one person. I would also like to add that, I am losing weight for my health, because I am pre-diabetic. My end goal is not to be something that my body was not designed to be. My end goal is to be a healthier version of myself.
Before I started this journey I was fearful of what it would look like. I was too scared to start a journey of health because I thought I would fail. I thought that becoming healthy was simply unattainable for me, and sometimes I still do fear that. But truthfully, if I did not take the risk to fight for my health, I would have regretted it down the road. But now I am on this journey, finding my strength to push through in God, alone. This week I have felt stronger, more empowered, and happier to pursue health. Though it has not been easy, I have grown proud of myself already, and have found joy in it.
I have given just a small look into my journey of pursuing health and fitness. If you would like more posts like this, or even more posts about my health journey, comment below!
