The Final 10 – Quitting

This quote keeps me #inspired.

So many people have told me I don’t need to lose any more weight. With words like stop.

Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate their compliments.

But, I’m not doing this for them. This is for me.

Sure I could stop at 203 lbs. I feel better than I’ve felt in years. I quit smoking, I’m eating right, I’m working out, and I’m trying new things. I’ve lost 67 lbs in 10 months.

Drew, you’ve been stuck here for weeks. Let’s just call this goal-weight and be done.

#nope

This is for me. I told myself I would see 220 on that scale and then, when I hit it, I said, that wasn’t enough and decided 200 lbs is the new goal.

If I quit now, if I reason with my mind, and say you did it, when I didn’t, I’ll end up right where I was last year.

Willpower is going to get me there.

I am going to see 200 on that scale

I am going to be able to say, “I lost 70 lbs in under a year, at the age of 39, without surgery, without pills, without a trainer, using only @loseitapp and my will to succeed.”

Only after hitting my goal, can I be sure, that those pounds are gone forever.

Maybe then, I can convince my subconscious to stop calling me “Drew.”

Thank you for your support.

  1. WOW!!!! You have been an inspiration for everyone here at work. Don’t stop and keep it moving. We are watching you and following your lead.

    1. Thank you Lashea. When I started this journey, it was all for me.

      But, people kept coming up and asking how I did it, and I realized, they weren’t asking how I did it, they were asking for help.

      This blog is dedicated to inspiring at least one person to change their life.

      Your comment has reaffirmed my purpose in creating this, and inspired me to keep going.
