Fit Prego: No comparing

Kaia Fit women's fitness center web and corporate shootThere is an evil thing that us women do.  We compare ourselves.  We look at one's accomplishment and think that "if they could, I can".  Well that's just not fair.  I may look at one woman...  "She was the same weight as me.  She lost 80 lbs.  Why can't I?"  There are so many other factors involved.  Some women lose weight with a trainer, by only changing their diet, finding a hobby in running, having a weight loss surgery, joining a weight loss program, etc.  The list goes on and on.  Different people do different things.

Just because I run, doesn't mean you can too.  You may not have it in you.  And besides...why are you looking to me for what you're capable of?  There's people out their that say surgery is cheating.  Others that say surgery is their only option.  If you're going to compare, someone is going to pick a side.  The point is...Everyone has an opinion.  Everyone compares.  Everyone thinks they have worked hard in their own journey.

Biggest problem...we feel the need to compare.  Stop.  Compare yourself to yesterday.

Here goes…
