It has taken me several attempts and failures to finally understand where i have always gone wrong with losing weight and actually being able to keep it off and finally i feel like i have hit that sweet spot, where i have finally come to the reality that i have to grind for me and me alone, that worrying what people think of you really doesn’t matter in the slightest, that your past doesn’t define you and infact teaches us in the future.

A positive mindset I honestly believe can really change everything and sometimes we just need to be surrounded by like minded people to feel that kind of energy, positivity, encouragment, belief and power that we can achieve anything once we put our minds to it!

    So much truth in these words. Real changes never occurs until you decide to change for yourself and only yourself. You can try and change because you think someone might like you better or look at you definitely but that change will only be temporary. Once you decide that you want a better you for yourself your mind will accept that and allow it. There still be be bumps in the road along the way that's natural with any change. Keep the positive thoughts and mind set. Focus on winning little battles and not worrying about the entire war.
