Small Changes Can Yield Big Results


Before the pandemic hit in March 2020, I was suffering from the loss of several family members and the near death experience of my wife. Then the pandemic hit, I felt as though I was suffocating and really did not understand what was happening to me. Trying to be positive for my wife who was implanted with a Ventricular Device after her third heart attack.

I completely turned numb to my situation and feelings. I started binge eating and ballooned back up to 292lbs. The day I realized I could no longer fit my clothes or walk a short distance without being completely winded. I knew it was time to get back to the living and start taking care of myself. I must make the change if I were to be there for my wife and kids.

I knew what would work to lose weight, however, it was the implementation that was difficult. In other words, taking the first step so I can take the second. This has always been a journey for me. I embark on gaining momentum and then life hits and I lose steam and stop. I don’t start diets, I change habits which work for periods of time. However, I now realize changing habits is great to change, but for lasting results I have to change my mindset as well.

So, how do I do that? I started updating my library and pay attention to what I mentally intake, and I slowly start taking control of my thoughts. I slowly alter what I eat. Why slowly? I say slowly because it is the habit I am changing as well as the mindset. I understand making the decision to this is instant. Making the actual change takes time, persistence, dedication, and desire. If you persist you would see your vision, dreams, and aspirations materialize.
