You may notice that Butterflies are a big part of my logo and designs. Sometimes people have been quite critical that I use them in a lot of my designs.
They are what remind me how far I have come, the culmination of reaching my goal.
I was like the caterpillar living a a different life. I was not happy with that life. I did everything I knew to try and change, to lose the weight. Every diet and exercise program started the same. I would go into them giving my all, 100% in. For months following the plan, losing a little bit of weight but not enough to come close to my goal. Always trying to change but failing.
Dreaming of a life I wanted, a life that would happen when I was thin.
Repeating over and over for years until real change was started. It was not actions that started it, not a diet or exercise program, but a change in my thoughts that lead to the transformation of action.
This transformation was not instant. For me it started with a loss of hope.
Too many failed diets and exercise programs. I had had enough. I needed to try something new.
Something that I had not tried before. Something I had looked down on, criticised and thought would not work.
I didn’t know but leaving all my negative thoughts behind and change my mindset about weight loss, food and exercise was the key.
It look time.
Sometimes I didn’t know it was happening and other times I was the one that deliberately made the changes, struggling to make the change a reality. Eventually it became easier, second nature.
I didn’t even know my transformation was finished, but suddenly I felt as if I had emerged from the chrysalis, I was no longer the person who started the journey, who wished to change.
I was now the butterfly!
You can become the butterfly too!
