An Idle Pause

I once described the role of my weight in my life as being like the sun; I don't actively think about it everyday but it affects everything that I do. My eating habits aren't terrible but I lead a very sedentary lifestyle. I get very little excercise beyond the walking that I do at work.

I have always considered myself to be fat and that belief was usually reinforced by my mother and aquaintances. Of course, looking back at times when I weighed far less than I do now, I know ...

I have always considered myself to be fat and that belief was usually reinforced by my mother and aquaintances. Of course, looking back at times when I weighed far less than I do now, I know that wasn't always the case. But this has caused me to always feel like I was a hopeless mess. I didn't need to diet because it wasn't going to do me any good. I didn't need to watch what I ate because I was never going to be fit.

I have a daughter who is almost 15 months old. I find myself questioning how I can make good choices for her when I don't for myself. I see her reaching for my can of soda instead of her milk (not that I EVER give her any).

I want to be a good example for my daughter. I want to be strong, healthy, and self confident.

I want to be able to run, damn it.

emoticon emoticon Here are some quotes to encourage you on your health and weightloss journey:

- Ask and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you. –Jesus (Matthew 7:7)
- Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. –Charles Swindoll
- If you hear a voice within you say “you cannot paint,” then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced. –Vincent Van Gogh
- The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself–the invisible battles inside all of us–that’s where it’s at. –Jesse Owens
- If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten. –Tony Robbins
- Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. –Mark Twain
- If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else. –Booker T. Washington
- The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why. –Mark Twain
- I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. -Jesus (John 14:6)
