It's time to stop
to stop eating fast food
to stop buying junk food
to stop thinking about food
to stop treating food like it's my best friend in the whole wide world
to stop running to food because I'm bored or just because I want to eat
to stop dwelling on the past and all the mistakes I've made
to make a choice
and I've got two choices:
1) I can stay this way, keep gaining weight and feeling even worse about myself, hoping and waiting for something to happen or waiting for that 'aha' moment
2) I can make that change. A healthy lifestyle change. One that requires patience, perseverance, effort, time, planning, purpose, and sacrifice. A choice that seems so insurmountable, hard and unattainable at the moment.
But if I stay stuck, stuck in this place and in this state of mind for the rest of my life, then what will I learn?
How will I grow?
How will I make a difference?
How will I know what's out there for me if I don't take that first step, if I don't get out there, if I don't even try?
It's time to stop saying and start doing-for real.
