Start Your Fitness Journey by Answering These 16 Questions

The Bella Butterfly Experience has been an 8-1/2 year journey! I've lost 120 pounds along this amazing journey and I've created a career that I love, because I get to help people who are struggling with weight and emotional issues just like I was.

Your life doesn't have to be less than extraordinary. My life's mission is to encourage, empower and educate people about the ravages of obesity, depression and a sedentary lifestyle.

I encourage you today, to START. Starting means taking the first step toward creating the life you really want to have. Here's an exercise for you. Grab a pen and journal and answer these questions:

  • What do you want to look like?
  • Are you happy with the way you look?
  • Do you feel energetic every day?
  • Are you happy?
  • Do you use food as your drug of choice?
  • Are you an emotional eater?
  • Do your relationships make you a better person?
  • Can you walk two flights of stairs without becoming winded?
  • Are you fulfilled in your career?
  • What is your ultimate career goal?
  • Do you know love?
  • What does fitness look like for you?
  • How would losing weight change your life?
  • Is your spiritual life healthy?
  • How much time do you spend preparing healthy meals for yourself?
  • Is your job empowering you or breaking you down?

Now, you have a template to use to meditate on. Think about your answers and figure out what you can change. Set small, short-term goals. Tackle them one at a time. You'll get there, but it will take time, perseverance, and mostly patience. You'll need faith. You'll need support. But hey, you got this. Let me know how I can help.
