Attitude ~ The Secret Ingredient

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

I got an email this morning that said "If you want to change your life, you first have to change your attitude." I think this is so true. My complete attitude towards my weight, exercise, and myself in general has changed.

I no longer believe that I am destined to being this heavy person. I now feel there are so many more important things in my life & my goal is to be healthy. I no longer feel that some people are athletes and I just can't do those things. Now, I strive to push myself hard and keep doing more than I was. Now, I love who I am becoming and it has nothing to do with that number on the scale!

How has your attitude changed?

    Right on! I now KNOW that I can climb that hill without being embarrassed or ashamed that either I won't make it or that I'll be winded! I'm going to a very challenging exercise class and I know that eventually, I'll be able to do everything in the class!

    Thanks for this! I've often told people I never felt (or feel) as heavy as I looked when faced with a mirror, or - horror of horrors, a photograph! The first attitude I had to adjust was acceptance...I'm getting there and so appreciate Blogs like yours to keep me going.
