My Life Changes

Saturday, January 26, 2013

How will my life change when I reach my fitness weight goal? This is a good question and calls for a lot of thought. If I were younger, I could come up with a lot of things that won't fit into my life now. Age makes a difference when it comes to making changes in your life.

I think and hope that the biggest change will be that some of my health conditions will improve. I know that the lower weight will take a lot of stress off my bones. That is the most important area of my condition at this time. I know that I will feel much better and happier in general.

There are so many things that I cannot right now because of the weight. I think it will be such a great feeling to be able to do those things - not fear going into a restaurant and be seated in a booth, being able to bend over and tie my shoes, being able to get up from a chair without assistance, being able to fasten any seat belt, fitting in the shower in the travel trailer, so many other things. I will feel more like going places where I will be among strangers and meeting new people.

I envision reaching my weight goal as being released from a prison. More freedom to do what I want to do and things I couldn't do. I will be free from this body that holds me hostage from life.

    I love this. You are right. our vision health changes as we mature and find out what we really want is healthy living rather then a specific weight or size. To be able to do what I want, when I want is something I aspire too.

    I sure can relate only too well to your blog. I also miss the same things you do as being obese isn't any fun and it makes our lives more difficult. Thank you for sharing your inspiring thoughts with us. I also look forward to being at a Happy Weight again. Enjoy the upcoming week with success.

    I like the imagery - being released from a prison.

    WELL DONE--It's all been said by our friends below so I'll just say--WELL DONE ALICE.
BUT I will add--why do we do this to ourselves?? emoticon

    I will also feel free from the body that seems to hold me hostage from life, when I finally reach my goal.

I also feel once I am at my goal, I will have to continue to eat healthy, and continue to exercise to keep it. That isn't going to be easy. It seems everything we do socially is all around food. And worse yet, it seems to call out to you inviting you to indulge.
I hope we will be able to over power the majority of those invites.

    "You will be able to live a *bigger* life in a *smaller* body" I quote from another Spark Friend of mine~~XO

    Wow! I have to agree with Mastercare---"I will be free from this body that holds me hostage from life". We should all make that our mantra. That says it all in a nutshell. Sure, we'll be able to do so many things that we can't do now, simple things to most people like crossing your legs. But being free and being able to do things that are almost impossible for us now, will be a whole new life to us. Then we will all have to live to be at least a 100 to enjoy these new activities. lol

    The most powerful realization is ...

I will be free from this body that holds me hostage from life.

I sit in awe as I read this sentence..this reality.
