I have been struggling with my weight and it feels like a lifetime! But to be honest with myself and others I have to say I have never done a serious effort to achieve my goal. If you ask me why I can give you a gazillion reasons of why I cannot lose weight:
1. Sugar Addiction
2. Will Power
4. Metabolic Syndrome
5. Hormonal issues
6. My spouse does not support me
7. It’s hereditary
8. I do not have time
9. I don’t know what to eat
10. I feel great as I am
I had a collection of excuses all piled up waiting for someone to make just any comment about my weight issue. I wanted everybody to make changes around me. I would always criticize my husband’s weight issues. Always DEMANDED his support and when he did not support me then he was to blame for my failure. Recently, I was listening to a podcast that talked about “How to change others” and I realized that if you can’t change yourself how can you change others? Is that really possible? AND IT IS NOT POSSIBLE. And in that podcast the person shared a quote: You have to be the change you want to see in others. I cannot change anybody but myself and maybe my changes can inspire others. I am not responsible for others failures but my own. I decided that day to let go of all the excuses, blaming and that urge to make others change when I was not ready to take up that challenge of changing myself. Since then I have made choices for me and just for me. I come home and cook healthy for me, workout as often as possible for me, signed up for a 5k for me etc. I do not want to blame anybody anymore for my failures and I do not want to try to change others. That is too much of a burden to hold on to. I want to accept others just as they are and maybe be an inspiration to them someday. I want to lead by example. And maybe nobody follows me or I do not inspire anyone but I do know for sure that when I look myself in the mirror I will be proud of my accomplishments! Proud of reaching goals I thought were out of reach! And proud of being who I am.

I create the battles
I create the Pain,
I create the quarrels,
That drives you insane.
When you turn your eyes on other people’s needs
I make a feast to honor all your deeds.
When all of your time is to think of gold
You make my way easier deep in to your soul.
In every selfish act you plant a seed
in the garden of my heart that only sows greed.
Welcome to my world
Welcome to my home
Don’t mind the heat
That always holds my throne.
In every selfish act I am to remain
I am the God of all that is mundane.
The journey you have taken is a point of no return
Make yourself at home and be prepared to burn.
There is only one way to pause all this destruction
love, prayer and faith will commence the reconstruction.
