Itís a choice. It's all about choice.


Friday, October 12, 2012



Iím choosing to be healthy. So that means making time for the things that are important to my health. It means making time for the gym. It means eating as healthy as I can. It also means not always having what I think I want. It means prioritizing my health above certain foods. I do believe that I donít have to totally give up some of the things I love. But I also know that I do have to sacrifice being able to eat some of those lovely things on a regular, or even semi-regular basis. I have to limit them. My downfall is sweets. I LOVE them. I would eat them all day, every day if I could (and kinda did for a while which contributed to my being obese). However doing so only puts me in a place I donít want to be. I also am one that once I start eating sweets, I tend to over indulge. So if I have my priorities straight, there are many times sweets need to be sacrificed Ė even if there is room in my calories for the day. I will confess, I have been less than perfect on this quest, but do pretty well over all.

The concept for weight loss is easy. Itís the everyday choices that are hard.

    I'm going to add one critical tip. Don't let anyone or anything enable you to put aside your dreams & goals!

You don't stop the quest for a healthy lifestyle because of personal issues or diversions! Pursuing your health is essential to life itself as nothing else will really matter.

Stay strong, stay focused and be well!

    I think some cultures tell us we can shoose whatever we want but forget to mention the idea of being aware of how out choices affect us reaching our goals.

    Great post! emoticon

The next time you make one of those everyday choices, I encourage you to share it in the SparkMinneapolis/St. Paul Team's forum, if you have time. It would be great for the thread titled Baby Step of the Day! They all add up to something great!
