What's Stopping You?

Have you been thinking about making a change? Maybe you’ve been thinking about changing your life for the better? If not change, then maybe personal improvement? About starting a new routine or adding something new to your routine? Have you been wanting to stop smoking but just haven’t worked up the courage? Have you wanted to lose that muffin top that we all hate so, SO much but just haven’t thought about how or when? Or maybe you’ve THOUGHT about it and just haven’t DONE anything about it.

No one is going to make this happen except yourself. YOU choose your own path.. you decide how you live your own life. YOU need to take the first step. Do you see where I’m going here? Change is not something someone else does for you.. or something you should do for someone else. Changing for the better is something that needs to come from within yourself. The want to lose weight, change your life or quit smoking needs to come from within yourself.

At one point in my life I realized that no one was going to make my dreams come true except for myself (and The Rock if he would just get his butt over here! ha JKing!). It is MY job to plan this dream/goal for myself. It is my job to wake up in the morning and STICK to that plan and to move that little step closer to my goal. I have chosen to enjoy every damn step of my journey instead of constantly wishing I was already where I want to end up. Maybe it’s taken me a bit longer than I had expected.. but am I still the 250 lb depressed, emotionally screwed up person I was over 2 years ago? No. For me it was just as much emotional as it was physical. I needed to talk myself into change and THEN I needed to get off my butt and put it into action. I think I’ve done a pretty good job.

You may ask yourself “what if I can’t do it?” or “what if I fail again?”. But what if you succeed this time? I tried weight watchers 2-3 times before it actually worked for me. I sometimes wonder where I would be if I hadn’t given myself that extra push. Do it for yourself! Challenge yourself!

I ask this of you my dear readers;

If not now, WHEN?

Think on that one
