Anger doesn't solve anything...

Saturday, August 21, 2010

My husband recently found a wonderful quote to help remind our family to control our tempers.

"Anger doesn't solve anything. It builds nothing, but it can destroy everything."
- Thomas S. Monson

I've been thinking about this a lot and applying it to my weight-loss journey. Being upset about my weight (or health) won't help me succed, it will only make me more upset, and consequently eat more and gain more weight.

Unhealthy eating or exercise habits can also be applied to this wonderful quote.

_____________________ (emotional eating, binge eating, not exercising etc.) doesn't solve anything. It builds nothing, but it can destroy everything (our health, our families or even lives.)

This dramatically changed my mindset about food. It's so much easier to say "No Thank You" to that piece of cake or fast food lunch. When deciding on meals I think to myself ..."Will this build me or destroy me?" Wow, that makes for easier choices.

I am now more dedicated to solving my life...building my body...and saving my health.
