I used to rely on “wins” to make me feel good.
When I lost weight, I would feel better.
When I did well on a race, I felt good about myself.
If the scale went up, I was bad 👿 Lee-Ann.
If I raced poorly, I was lazy 😔Lee-Ann.
I soon realized that I could control my emotions with exercise.
If I ran six miles and then weighed myself, the scale would be down and I was good Lee-Ann again.
If I had three race time goals, I would surely meet one of those times and then I was hard working Lee-Ann again.
When I first joined #TWW, there were so many times I was tempted to revert back to old Lee-Ann behaviors to navigate my fear, manipulate the result and subconsciously to self-sabotage my fear of both failure and my then distorted definition of success.
My Coach @janellefitmarks has been instrumental in meeting me where I am at while also giving me what I need (which may include a gentle nudge here and there).
And in paying it forward, Janelle has made me a better Coach for the women that I work with.
The past 15 months on the TWW team, things have started to come full circle for me so that now I no longer weigh my worth on an end result; but, instead experience my success on the daily!
Find success in all that you do and who you are now instead of what you aspire to do or to be. 🥰😍😘
