This past 3 months has been one hell of a journey.
A journey of transformation, self discovery and self love.
For those of you who have been following my journey, you will know that I am an emotional eater.
I eat when I am stressed, miserable, depressed or sad and that food is my source of comfort.
For 2 years now, I have been fighting to get the access weight off my body that represented the bad and the ugly times in my life.
And like a blessing in disguise, an angel challenged me.
To be honest, at first I wasn’t very keen on doing it because it meant cutting out all my favourite foods like meat and poultry, dairy and carbs.
But I have to say being a part of this challenge has changed my life.
When I started this challenge, I weighed almost 82 kg’s and to date I have lost 14kgs. I have not been in my 60’s since I had my daughter and that was almost 8 years ago.
Being part of this challenge has not only been life changing but mind changing too. I have learnt to control my bad eating habits by changing the way that I think. And my passion for working out has increased too.
I know that in the bad times we tend to neglect our spiritual lives and this experience has helped me to awaken my spiritual life again.
This challenge happened right through the big days but that didn’t bother me. I cheated here and there but I was in control of what I put into my mouth. And have proven that its all in the mind and that it can be done.
I am in control of my mind, my mind is not in control of me.
This challenge ended last month and I am still consistent in my eating and working out routines. And I am still losing more weight without even putting too much thought into it.
And last but not least, I would like to thank the trainers. Without your motivation and expertise, we would not be where we are today.
To the next intake who started this challenge on Wednesday, goodluck and don’t give up on yourself. You are worth it.
Remember that change is hard but transformation is the key to opening up new things for you towards the future. So keep on pushing right to the end.
