I learned there are troubles
Of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead
And some come from behind.

┬áBut I’ve bought a big bat.
I’m all ready, you see.
Now my troubles are going
To have troubles with me!

-I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew

Dr. Seuss really had a way with words, didn’t he? In this life we are all going to have troubles. It is a forgone conclusion. Some will have money troubles, some will have marital troubles, but for most of you reading this it is weight troubles that have to be dealt with. Dealing with weight troubles is not an easy task by any means, but it is something that you can do. You need the WANT to do it and the WILL to see it through. The WANT needs to come from within you for you because you can’t WANT to change yourself for someone else. That kind of thinking will take you off course very quickly. WANTing to change for yourself will more than likely keep you focused on the task at hand. I know from personal experience that it can get difficult day in and day out, but the WILL that you find within yourself can help you make it over those speed bumps in your journey.

So, I say to you…whether you are just starting out or maintaining your healthy lifestyle go grab your big bat and show your troubles what kind of a trouble you can be.
