* Pick your hard *

Saturday, May 28, 2011

A quote I heard recently (from a WW leader) has really started to motivate me; not just in weight loss, but in many aspects of my life.

Being overweight is HARD
Losing weight is HARD
Pick your own HARD

Since hearing this, every time I want to eat something unhealthy, I think "pick your own hard" and, almost always, I have picked losing weight. When I stop to think about it, losing weight hard is easier than overweight hard. It's just that the overweight hard brings immediate results...but, it also brings almost-immediate regret, guilt, anger -- usually, unpleasant feelings follow unhealthy food. And, losing weight hard has an end result, a goal. Overweight hard has no end, and that scares me.

    I had this posted on my vision board a while back, and it somehow got lost in the shuffle while I was sick. I had, of course, added "Being unhealthy is hard". Thanks for the reminder; I'm putting it back up!
