What Keeps You Going?

“At first, one takes baby steps until your able to walk out the new lifestyle. Then, it’s remembering where you came from and developing an attitude of Never-Wanting-To-Go-Back!”

I still recall how difficult it was to get started with the new life style when I first joined Weight Watchers. I was worn down by many failed attempts and overly stuffed with shame for allowing myself to become so heavy – I needed a lot of work.
At first, the program was difficult to get the rhythm down. I had never tracked my eating habits before. I knew what I wanted out of life and had seen many other people achieve success and wanted that too.
Thankfully, I stuck with the teachings and applied them to my life. Over the months, I found myself walking with renewed confidence and I was getting more comfortable with walking.
What really kept me going is thinking back to those first days and how I desperately wanted to start a new chapter.
Today, my life isn’t free from difficulty but in comparison to those days, it’s a heck of a lot better.
What keeps me going is remembering those first days and Never Wanting To Go Back.
What keeps you going?
