Keep Climbing

There’s always gonna be another mountain. I’m always gonna wanna make it move. Always gonna be an uphill battle. Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose. It ain’t about how fast I get there. It ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side. It’s the climb.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Sometimes on your journey you will feel like you haven’t made the progress you should. I get discouraged often and want to quit sometimes.
In these times it is most important to remember why you started.
I spent my whole adolescence overweight. I couldn’t shop at the trendy stores. I couldn’t fit in with the rest of my classmates. I just wanted to be normal. But I lived and learned that normal was not for me.

So I took my poor heart and my bum knee and my low confidence, and decided that I wasn’t going to change for anyone other than me. I didn’t care about fitting in. I cared about being healthy. The moment I changed my perspective from aesthetics and societal acceptance, I began to see a change on the outside as well.
While I do have goals for how I want my body to look, my primary focus is and will continue to be my actual HEALTH. I do this because of the way it makes me feel, not because of the way it makes me look. And I will continue to strive for as long as I’m alive.
If you’re not being challenged you cannot grow.
Without struggle there can be no progress. I was shocked to see how far I have come when I saw this old picture. Remember where you’ve come from and focus on where you’re going. And always always always JUST KEEP SWIMMING! I challenge you to challenge YOU!
