There are Times I find myself thinking about how much sooner I could have gotten here had I not given into numerous fears, kept my head down and done the work.
6 years of Transformation in one photo.
I'm not saying it's like this for everyone, but in my case, I emotionally coped with issues through the comfort of food. Others use drugs and alcohol, my vice was food.
(Not that there's anything wrong with alcohol in moderate quantities)
I blew up, gained fat, lost any and all muscle tone I'd ever had. I imagined drowning felt similarly...
I'm glad I put my foot down, and said, "enough is enough! I CAN AND WILL do all the things the Doctor's said I could not!"
The road to anything healthy is long. It will test your stamina, endurance and self-discipline.
If you're used to treating yourself like shit, thinking shit, eating shit...
Guess what will happen? You BELIEVE that shit and then you output shit. It's from your mind and heart that flows Confidence or Dependence.
Are you dependent on external substances, situations and people to bring you joy?
Do you create your own joy?
The former is a poor and unhealthy mindset, the latter is that of a rich mind and heart.
Stay rich in mind, my friends. Believe in yourself. You can do ANYTHING you set your mind to! HAPPY SWEATY SUNDAY!
