Motivation Monday: Patience is key

The year is winding down and it’s the time to reflect on all the great things you did this year.  I truly hope it’s been a great year for you and you have made the progress you desired at the start of the year.  Even if you didn’t reach all of your goals doesn’t mean it’s still not going to happen.  Patience is key and things take time, a person just needs to stay the course.

PatienceI know what you’re thinking, “it’s easier said than done.” That’s the absolute truth, it’s easy to think those things but putting it into action is another monster. I promise you having patience and waiting it out until the end will make you a better person. It will teach you strength and control. Plus, everything you are wanting will be much more appreciated in the end.

Am I really qualified to be giving you this advice? What would make me qualified in the first place? I don’t have an answer to this. I’m just a girl who lost 200 pounds with hard work, determination and a whole lot of patience. PATIENCE is the biggest lesson I learned from starting my weight loss journey and it will be something I’m going to take in account again when I’m trying to lose my baby weight.

Things will happen slowly and with time. Things don’t happen immediately, but that doesn’t mean those things WON’T happen. Plans are made quickly, but execution takes a bit of TIME to develop. Please remember that if you are starting your weight loss journey. It will take time but you have to keep going, even when things aren’t going the way you thought.

It took me 15 months to lose 150 pounds. It didn’t happen immediately and it was slow at the start. I was frustrated and confused. It was hard. I knew that if I kept pushing through, it would pay off in the end. And it did…I changed my life by allowing time to do it’s thing and working on my patience to let it happen.

I hope this motivates you to accomplish some great things in the new year.  It’s time to start thinking about the things you want to accomplish in the upcoming year.  And remember, patience and time will get you there.

Happy Monday!
