Brenda over at Bandster Momma wrote a great post
And it got me thinking
She talked about how we get comfortable at certain weights
And we just sit there
What about you?
The truth is that I used to a size 34
Just last summer
And I used to say
“Man…I would be HAPPY to be a size 20 NOW”
Have you ever said that to yourself?
You look back on pictures when you were younger
And you remember that at the time you were unhappy with yourself
But now you think…I’d LOVE to be that weight!
Well that’s what I thought for many years
I thought..you know…if I could be a size 24 or a 22 I’d be ecstatic
But now I’m a size 20
And I can honestly say
I never really believed I’ve ever be a size 20 again
I think I believed that I would lose SOME of the weight
But now that I’m 163 lbs in and a size 20
I already feel like the dream has come true
I can walk around comfortably
I’m not winded
I’m not in constant pain
I can fit in seats
I can fit in a booth
I’m living my life again
I’ve reentered society
And now I find….that I’m at a plateau
But is it a REAL plateau
Or a mental one
Has my weight loss slowed down
Because deep down…I don’t believe I can go lower?
I was reminded today
When I read Brenda’s post
That sometimes our plateau
We put up the roadblock
We hit a weight that feels comfortable
And we say….Good Enough
But did you start this journey to reach “good enough”
Or did you start this for VICTORY?
That’s the question I’m asking myself today
And maybe it’s time I stop being so comfortable
Maybe it’s time I start telling myself to widen the scope
Of my dreams
Don’t accept “good enough”
What about you?
