“I wasn't me. I put on a lot of weight and was unhappy and tired. With the lovely age I'm at, things start catching up to you. So losing the 10 pounds is harder. Feeling strong is harder.”
"I let a lot of life's distractions consume my day and my weeks and then ultimately about four years. I wasn't me. I put on a lot of weight and was unhappy and tired. With the lovely age I'm at, things start catching up to you. So losing the 10 pounds is harder. Feeling strong is harder.
I always considered myself an athlete, but as I got older nothing seemed permanent. I would have short-term goals achieved. Lose 10 pounds in a month or run five miles in two months. Then it ended and was followed by some kind of disappointment later on. Lost 10, put back 15.
So about five months ago, it was a weekend of the anniversary of my father's death. He died when I was 18, and this year it just hit me because I'm at the age that he died. He was young.
I guess I needed something big like that to get me to try something new. I don’t know if I found RD or RD found me. I’m not sure, but it’s been 5 months and this time is different.
I think one of the big things that stand out is that I feel like every other thing I tried was all about the now and that immediate goal. Even if it took three months, it was still the now. RD is the now and the later
My goals don't end here. I don't think they ever will, which is super cool to me because I'm usually impatient. The coaches at RD taught me patience already.
I used to be really fixated with that number on the scale. So all the other programs I tried started every morning on the scale. Ironically, I'll get up one morning and be like, "Yes, I lost one pound. I love that number.” Then two days later, when that number didn't move, I hated that number.
I don't even go on the scale at home. That number doesn't define me anymore. I feel strong. I feel good. I know my body is changing. That's awesome. Kind of in ways I didn't expect, which is even cooler. I just love that I don't think it's going to end, and I know RD supports that. Strength is not for today. Strength is for life.
