It is said: Falling down is part of life; Getting back up is Living! This is so true with those who struggle with weight loss issues. A huge part of losing weight is believing you can do it! In the beginning, when motivations are high, weight loss seems easier.
As the work and focus of day-to-day weight loss moves forward, motivation diminishes and we realize that it is not going to happen overnight. (Where is that EASY BUTTON?) We all experience speed bumps along our weight loss journey. We start, get discouraged, slow down, and some even stop.
Even as the weight loss process has been described as “lonely” in that it is “you”, any only “you” that can make the necessary changes to become successful, no one is on the journey alone! The lyrics of the song, “Lean On Me”, have great reminders of how important it is to have a healthy, strong support group to lean on when speed bumps slow down or prevent desired weight loss progress.
“Sometimes in our lives, we all have pain, we all have sorrow.
But if we are wise, we know that there is always tomorrow;
I might have a problem that you understand; we all need somebody to lean on,
You just call on me brother when you need a hand,
When you are not strong, I will be your friend, I will help you carry on…
Just lean on me.
If there is a load that you have to bear, that you can’t carry, I’m right up the road.
I will share your load if you just call me, just lean on me.”
