Pick Your Hard.

Being Fat is Hard. Losing Weight is Hard. Pick Your Hard.
This is, by far, my favorite motivational quote I’ve found throughout this weight loss experience. It’s very true, very to the point, and gives me the kind of motivation that my best work out songs do.
Losing weight has been the longest hard I’ve ever had, if that makes sense. It is a daily struggle to make sure I don’t overeat, I exercise, and I get water in. It has to be at the forefront in my head constantly.
In the end, it’s the little rewards you get while along the journey that does make it all worth it.  I have the ability to breathe and wear my seat belt at the same time. I can walk down the street without paranoia kicking in that everyone is staring at me (in a bad way).  People comment about the fact they can see my bones (ewww) and wrap their arms around me with room to spare. I can fit comfortably in an airplane seat. I can walk, and even jog, for an hour without having to stop. The best part is I keep discovering more rewards as I go along.
I’m glad I picked the right hard.


  1. I LOVE that quote as well! I was just telling myself it yesterday, how funny! I agree with you totally :)

  2. You've done so well!!

    I still have a long way to go, but my back isn't killing me in the morning, I move faster (walking and swimming) and I fit into seats better now. Besides the looking better in clothes and stuff, I'm looking forward to the end of chafing. It's improved, but I still borrow the desitin from the baby on occasion!

  3. Totally agree with that quote! I also love "if you always do what you always did you'll always be where you always were" :)
