So we’ve all heard the mantra that it takes 28 days to set a habit, right? (You have heard that, haven’t you?) With Shaklee, I’m well past that initial 28 day period – I’m in the midst of month three of working with Shaklee to shed some pounds. And I have. I’ve shared my progress with you, but I’ve also been stuck. The scale hasn’t moved in the right direction in a meaningful way in a long time – or so it feels.
I’ve see-sawed up and down two pounds for weeks and weeks and weeks now. And it’s killing me inside just a little bit. If I’m doing it right, why is my body not doing what it is supposed to do? Am I doing it wrong? Is it not working? Am I missing something? Is it just me and I’m meant to be this way and I should give up?
No, no annnnnnd no.
Sometimes, I have to remind myself that big changes take time. You don’t see the results immediately, and that’s ok. Stick with it. Persevere. It’s worth it.
Or… as my high school cheerleading days would say, “Don’t you ever get down, don’t you ever give up, charge up!”
