100 lbs lost….Not The End…Just A Milestone

19 Feb

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to write this blog entry. 100 lbs ago, my goal was to lose 100 lbs. Honestly, I didn’t think I could do it. I did think I could lose one pound though. I knew if I figured out how to lose one pound, I could just repeat that process 100 times over.

It has been an amazing journey so far. By no means am I finished. I’ve learned alot about myself. It definitely hasn’t been easy. There were days I wanted to quit. There were days I skipped workouts. There were days I didn’t make the best decisions.

People ask me how did I do it? How did I lose 100 (101 to be exact) lbs. I can answer that question a million different ways. There’s one answer that encompasses them all. I just kept showing up. I kept going daily. I kept going back to the gym. I kept making more good decisions than bad. I kept telling myself I can do it.

The key to success is being persisent and stubborn enough not to quit. That’s really all I did. I just kept going no matter what. No matter how I felt.

The rest I figured out along the way. Just keep going. Don’t quit. If you do that, you’ll accomplish all you set out to do.
