How often do you tell yourself … I CAN versus I CAN’T?

motivation-for-long-term-weight-lossGood morning friends and family and countrymen, I am sitting here with my cup of dark roast on a beautiful and sunny Sunday morning in Scarborough, ME.  It is supposed to hit  the lower 90’s today so it is going to be a great beach/pool day and will be great for the tomatoes in the garden.

Yesterday I was having a conversation with someone about hitting my milestone that I shared with everyone about finally getting my 100lb “official” loss award from WW and they were asking and sharing how they don’t feel like they could ever get there or hope to one day get to the point where I was experiencing.

I then asked them, “Why do you doubt yourself?  Why are you telling yourself that you hope one day to get there and maybe you might be able to do it?”  As we were chatting the normal symptoms were popping up with lifetime of failures, multiple times attempting the journey, no love at home and support, childhood issues that they faced.

At the end of the conversation, I dug in my heels and parked in the space of self-love and confidence.  I was telling them that my journey has taken me over 2 years so far and I am not even at goal yet.  I also layered in the fact that I also attempted WW four other times and the time didn’t seem right for me but this time it seems to click.  The reason that it clicked is because I stopped self doubting and I leaned in more and more with the people who can help me.  My Tribe.

I know it is difficult to see the scale acting up on you.  I know it is difficult to have patience in the long arduous journey we have trying to lose the weight that we have been putting on our whole lives.  I know that some days are good and some days are bad.  But remember this, you are 100% worth it and you can 100% do this.

TELL YOURSELF THAT!!  I CAN DO IT!  Each morning wake up and tell yourself those words to get your mindset going in the right direction.

Have a great Sunday folks and make sure to believe in yourself!
