This journey is really a series of decisions. Each day when I get up I have to decide if I am willing to make healthy choices with what I eat & if I am willing to exert some energy in exercise. Sometimes that is a minute by minute thought process. In order to keep on track with my goal, I must stay focused on my goal. The goal to feel better, to be able to enjoy life more, and to be able to do the activities that I enjoy.
Deb Sofield blogged the other day that “Your past is not your future, you have the power to make new decisions for your life starting today.” I printed that out and put it on my desk as a daily reminder that I am responsible for making those decisions for myself. Nobody else can do that for me, I have to decide to take hold of my life and choices. I have the power to change. I love this quote too…
Those decisions pay off too. Just today a co-worker commented on my weight loss. Feels good when others notice. Feels even better to realize it in yourself & to feel so much better!
