One of the GIT YMCA mentors sent out a quote this week as follows:
“Losing weight is hard. Being overweight is hard. CHOOSE YOUR HARD.”
That statement struck me like a ton of bricks. I have spent a lot of time blaming circumstances for my weight, but in all honestly, the weight was created by MY decisions not those of my circumstances. Passive decisions are what created the weight and I must make concrete decisions to take it off and keep it off. I need to choose my hard and there is more reward in choosing to put in the time and effort to take care of myself than “choosing” to let circumstances dictate my health and happiness.
What choice are you gonna make?
One thought on “Making a conscious decision!”
Great post Chesney!
