Haven't done one of those in ages.
I actually do not want to talk weightloss in this post. I want to talk ..I honestly don't even know what I should call that.
Most people who post before and afters always add something like "I feel so much better now.", "I am ashamed to post this" and that kinda stuff.
But the thing is, why? - why do we feel better now? - why are we ashamed of our before?
I don't feel ashamed. I feel proud. I wasn't proud back then, but I should have been.
Proud of whatever else I did in my life, proud of who I was, proud that I decided back then to change my ways.
I wasn't happy with how I looked, but I wasn't happier when I lost weight either.
It has never been the outside that would change my outlook on life, my appearance never determined my happiness or emotions.
It was my mindset, my ways of thinking, that were destructive.
And now, 6 years later, I start to feel good. Not because I lost weight, but because throughout those years of losing weight and getting into working out and diet and mental health, I realized that the thing that changes when you lose weight, or at least should, in my opinion, is your mindset; and exactly that determines your happiness and mental and physical health. Not the weight. The weight is a product of what goes on in our minds.
Weight is superficial, it doesn't truly influence how we feel. What does is our thoughts and how we treat ourselves.
So obviously, once you start caring about yourself, you feel better. The weight, again, is only a product of that change in your mindset. It is nothing. In my opinion, in my reality, everyone creates the world they live in to a certain extent, so whatever we want to change, we have to start with ourselves. We are the key. You are.
Weight, looks, whatever else, it isn't the thing that counts, that determines how we feel. It is how we think about ourselves and how we treat ourselves.
You can lose all the weight you want if you don't change your mindset, you'll still feel shitty.
It starts in our minds.
Mindset will get you anywhere you want to go!🔥💪🏼
The first step to achieve is to believe. Problems will appear, obstacles will arise, yet you need to keep a strong mindset, an iron will, there is no other way of making it past those hurdles.👨🏻💻
Being realistic, we have all had that time when we lost all inspiration, maybe for lacks of results, or because of disappointment and many times due to our inability to see the bigger picture. It is in that moment that you need to walk to the bathroom, splash a lot of water on your face, look in the mirror and fucking yell "I can do it, I will do it!!!" 🔥🔥.
Mindset can take you to the stars or it can burry you in the dirt. Control your mind, control your emotions, learn how to take all of those negatives feelings and turn them into fuel to become better, to become bigger!💎💎.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, BELIEVE YOU CAN REACH THE SKY, BELIEVE THAT THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU, THAT YOUR HUNGER CAN TAKE YOU WHERE YOU WANT TO GO, THAT YOU CAN!!!!
