Does the term “baby steps” mean small steps or steps like a baby? If it means that I’m stumbling, falling, and wobbling towards something I desperately need to get my hands on, then “baby steps” is exactly what I’m taking.
It’s been a few weeks since I decided I was tired of living in my own body. Yes, you’ve heard this before. I’ve lost 30 pounds here, 50 pounds there, and even 100 on my most successful journey. But, I gain the weight back (and then some) every single time.
Realizing I’ve done it again, I’ve been thinking about ways to be successful and stay that way. Yes, a weight loss journey, a journey of creating yourself, is filled with ups and downs, but losing weight only to gain it back is not healthy. It’s a vicious cycle.
While looking for ways to find success, I realized that every journey I’ve been on, I’ve jumped in head first. I would go to the gym everyday, try to eat things I hated just because they were healthy. I can’t stick to that. That is one thing that has made me fail.
So, for now, best advice I can give myself is to try to take it one day at a time. I’m going to keep on the move and stay within my calories everyday, but if I mess up, I mess up, and I will get right back on.
This is why instead of going full-force, I have decided to take it one wobbly step at a time.
