It’s a marathon, not a sprint

I am in my head so much lately, and that’s not a good thing.

I KNOW that what I’m doing is going to take time. I realize that what I’ve done to my body over the years happened over the years. It won’t change over night. I KNOW this.

But I find myself getting so upset and second guessing what I’m doing when I see my people post things like “I’m down 20 lbs in 23 days, yay!” Or “Just bought new jeans, 3 sizes smaller than I was 2 months ago, so psyched!”  Or “Omg, I’m under X lbs, I haven’t been there since High School!” I’m not talking about diet ads, etc.. I’m talking about people I know in real life.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for THEM. (I truly am!)  It just makes me question why I’m doing things the way I’m doing them though when they’re having so much success in a “quick” amount of time.

Again, I know that what I’m doing will last but DAMMIT. I want results and I want them NOW!

So today, I take a deep breath step so far out of my comfort zone it’s not even funny, to remind myself that what I am doing IS working.

THIS is what one year of really freaking hard work looks like.

I need to snap out of it and be happy with how far I’ve come and stop being such a baby about it.
