Its been over 6 months of working out and I believe I reached my plateau in weight loss right now. I’ve been hovering between 209lbs to 215lbs for the past 3 months and can’t seem to shake it. I can tell you my motivation has been lacking lately and that is because I need to reset my weight loss goals and create new ones.
I believe that with any activity that you do you need to get it straight in your head first before any other factor. If you can’t get the goal or idea planted in your mind first of what you want to accomplish then nothing matters. Because no matter what outside factors like work, friends, parties, weather anything will try to keep you down but if your mind is set on your goal you will get past these detours and keep trucking along to achieve your goal.
When I started working out 6 months ago I remember doing squats with just my own body weight and my knees were making horrible noises but over time they got better and it was all good from then on. The same happened to my shoulders but eventually they got better.
Well recently my motivation was down and I was tired from work and started to create little excuses in my mind like oh wait was that a crack or noise in my shoulder I think I better slow down and rest. Well I kept on doing this till I MYSELF manifested the same symptoms on the other shoulder as I was concentrating on creating reasons why not to workout. Well funny enough 1 week later I forgot all about this and just did some stretches just for the heck of it and guess what I didn’t hear any noise or anything..
WOW AMAZING No intention to create self limits and the noise was gone..
In this lesson I learned that there will always be millions of reasons why you should stop trying to attain your goal whether it be working out, playing soccer or even going for a run, but the main thing that will get you through to the finish line will be your motivation driven by your own goals.
ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS HAVE A CHIEF GOAL. As this will push you through your life no matter what your trying to do. This will give you the drive every morning to wake up deal with the days events and eventually get to the fun part of pushing to achieve your ultimate goal.
This is my first weight loss challenge and I can tell you its NOT EASY but it is attainable for anyone, you just have to set the intention that this is your #1 reason you wake up everyday and no matter what as long as you focus on this on a daily basis you will succeed it just might take bit but that’s OK just keep trucking along the universe will give you everything you need to succeed trust me its true just believe in yourself. Believe YOU CAN DO IT!
