Yesterday, when I logged my new weight on my fitness pal someone commented that they wish they could be "lucky" like me and have a good weight loss. I am here to say...............
What's luck got to do with it?
I exercise and eat under my calorie count. I work hard. Most of us are working VERY hard to lose this weight. Luck has nothing to do with it.
When you comment that we are "lucky", you are negating all the work, sweat and tears that have went into our weight loss. You are writing off the hours, days, weeks, months and years of dedication on our part.
So, luck? Yeah, it has nothing to do with it. We aren't lucky, we are just motivated.
Don't sit back waiting for luck to find you. I am someone who knows from experience.......it won't. You will be waiting a long time and then you will realize this: I can create my own luck. I can change the outcome of my life. I am the key to my own happiness.
I will leave you today with a useless movie quote:
Cameron in Ferris Buellers Day Off:
I am not going to sit on my ass as the events that affect me unfold to determine the course of my life.
