Do you ask for help easily? What does it mean when you do? I’ve always been bad at it. Maybe it’s being the oldest kid. Maybe it’s being raised in a family that moved a lot. Asking for help seems like admitting you can’t do it. Probably I’m just stubborn. All I know is I’ve spent most of my life getting it done (or not done) on my own.
God just sent me a huge breakthrough, and it came where I least expected it. I’ve always been about ten or twenty pounds heavier than I should be, but in the last year it got out of hand. I made a really scary phone call for me. I asked for help to lose weight.
What amazed me was it felt victorious before I even lost a pound. Some of my friends lost weight with 3010 Weightloss For Life. I had tried to lose weight on my own and sometimes did it, but always gained it back. I knew I needed the coaching and accountability that 3010 offers… so why was that phone call so hard to make? Fear? Maybe that I’d show myself vulnerable? When I made the call to set up that first consultation, I felt like I was finally telling myself “You are worth it.”
All my fear went away once I met the team. There was no judgment or guilt, just support – as much as I needed. I lost 35 pounds and am keeping it off because of the help I still get from 3010.
Even better, I’ve learned a new skill. Asking for help. Admitting I can’t do everything perfectly. It’s so freeing. It’s opened new doors in my spiritual life and in my relationships. I realize that all these years I’ve wanted connection, and connection comes through admitting imperfection and reaching out… trusting others… who knew?
