(anyone get the Sex and The City reference there?)
Well first of all, I guess the blog is ending, but this so-called-project is an ongoing life learning experience for me. Because the things I learned I’ll take with me forever, and I continue to feel as though this project lives on…and will…for eternity.
Oy that’s a little overwhelming. I’ll tell you why.
I’m sort of back to my old devices. The changes I made – they didn’t stick. My weight is still a little down, my clothes fit ok some days, some days not so much, and I think it’s a direct outcome of the sugar, water, wheat intake.
So the project failed…
Because the changes I made to feel so great, didn’t stick.
Because I’m back to my old devices like I said, eating poisonous-for-me wheat, nibbling on sugary things, and other annoying stupid things I do that make me feel kinda crappy.
Because self-coaching maybe doesn’t really work, and you do need a person (ideally not yourself!) to really champion you through this process.
Because I lost my motivation after the Wedding Day passed and didn’t REALLY cultivate a deeper motivation – one within myself – to keep on going.
Because, because, because…
But also, the project was a success…
Because I DID fit into the dress on Wedding Day.
Because I really wanted to show all of you what this process is like.
Because I learned some amazing things about myself along that way that are life long lessons.
Because I got a bit of publicity and hopefully (fingers crossed) impacted someone, somewhere.
So what would I coach myself in this last post having these final thoughts in these last moments?
Celebrate your successes, Rebecca.
Take with you all your lessons learned and build on them, Rebecca.
And know that your potential, your confidence, and your ability to grow and learn is limitless, Rebecca.
I don’t want to give up. I don’t want to stop. So I’ve decided, as an opportunity plopped into my lap at the end of this project, to keep going.
But this time, I’ll be the coach, and Jessica will be the client. I’ve got 8 weeks to prepare her to be “Reunion Ready”. I hope you’ll check it out and join us because both of us could really use your support.
