The Challenges She Faced and How She Stays Motivated
"The most challenging aspect of my weight-loss journey has been learning that losing the weight will not be the answer to everything," Kayla said. "Losing weight will not automatically mean you will love yourself more; it will not eliminate your self-doubt or increase your self-worth. Losing weight physically is so much less important than losing the metaphorical weight that no one else can see."
In order to stay motivated, Kayla said she reminds herself of the mental and physical state she was in when she embarked on her journey. "I find that trying new things can revive my motivation when I'm feeling stuck." She's also motivated other people's journeys and the community of men and women she's found that empower one another to reach their goals.
