Journey or Destination

Monday, July 23, 2012

Every diet has a destination. The day you stop and are no longer on a diet. Sometimes it is a planned stop but most times it's not a planned stop. It usually is a painful end.

All of life is a journey. I am beginning to embrace this healthy lifestyle journey as permanent change. There are lots of stops on life's journey to mark goals, achievements, victories and even defeats. I need to keep in mind that those stops don't need to define the end of the journey because they are only stops not destinations. I want to embrace the healthy lifestyle journey completely.
So what's the destination to this journey. Continuing to aspire and work toward a healthy life for my entire lifetime.

  I agree that a diet is a journey to a destination. A couple of years ago, I decided that it was time to get myself back to my running weight. So, I established a plan on how to lose 20 pounds and started my running program on Jan 1st. I started out with a program of working out on a stationary bike for 30 minutes a day. I decided that I would not check out my weight until the end of each month so that I would quit. On Feb 1st I noticed a reasonable weight lost so that I knew that my plan was working. When I finally completed my year plan I had lost the 20 pounds. emoticon emoticon

    I guess I've arrived at the place where the word "diet" is too closely associated with temporary. Spark has allowed me to know (and accept) that there is nothing temporary about a healthy lifestyle--one that will allow me to attain and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
