Words of Encouragement Wednesday



Please don’t forget, nothing worth doing is easy, at least not at first. Everything you have ever had to learn was hard before you learned it. We’ve forgotten how many times we fell when we were learning how to walk, but watch a toddler who is just starting out and you will see that it is WORK! We were made to walk but we still have to work those muscles and learn how to do it.

At some point in life you learned how to read or you wouldn’t be getting much out of this article at this point. There was a time in your life, however, where this page would have been nothing more than gibberish with a pretty picture to you; but you put in the work to learn how to read. In the beginning sounding out the word c-a-t was hard, now you do it without thinking.

Think of all of the things you do in life that now take you no effort whatsoever. At one point all of those things took time and effort to learn. Why should having a healthy lifestyle be any different? You can’t expect to just wake up one morning after a lifetime of making unhealthy choices and suddenly think healthy choices are going to come easily. You have to be willing to put in the time and effort to learn a new skill. You’re going to have to rethink your choices and it will take some time to figure out what changes you need to make. But none of those things are impossible, and all of them are worth it. Before you know it you will be making healthy choices without having to conciously think about it at all.

  1. You’re right. Oh how messed up our thinking still is. Why do we just keep thinking that everything, especially weight loss, should happen right now (I are a salad, shouldn’t I lose some weight today)? It’s time to take my thought life under control in eating as well. You’re right, everything worthwhile takes time. Thank you.
