I Won't Allow "What If"
Thursday, February 14, 2013
Yesterday, I cleared away clothing (that is now too big) to put out for pickup today by a local charity. I've done this throughout my four years in this healthy lifestyle change, but this time, a small nagging thought started to creep in. "What if you need this larger size someday?"
I banished it immediately. This has been the first time in my life that I was overweight (hormones, overwork, less exercise, stress, and yes, over eating), and I never want to go through this again. Unless someone takes a bike tire pump and fills me with air like a Macy's parade balloon, I will not let myself gain weight again. Period. End of story.
Happy Valentine's Day. While you're busy loving others, don't forget to save a bit for yourself.
