Where's the TARDIS when you need it?

Friday, March 01, 2013

Do you ever wish you could go back in time? Say if you had been overweight your entire life, lost 77 lbs when you were 23? Of course, you gained it all back. Would you want to go back to that time even if you knew that you only lost that weight because the rest of your life was so miserable you could not even think about eating most days? Or, would you go forward in time and see if you had finally conquered your weight and health problems? Perhaps you would go to a time period where more "robust" women were appreciated?
If Dr. Who showed up on your doorstep and offered to take you to any time you wanted where or when would you go? Okay, maybe Dr. Who marathon DVD viewing at 2 am is not wise because I've been thinking alot about this. Would I go back to being that miserable 23 year old because she was the only time in my life my weight was 'normal'? No. I think not. But, I would love to go forward to see what a future me would be like.

    I wouldn't go back. I like who I am and where I'm at now and I have a wonderful future to look forward to. I am happier now than I have ever been even though I am still over weight. I have joined TOPS and I'm back on SP. So, the future looks good.

    I'd only like to go back in time if I could CHANGE some of the things I did back then. Otherwise, no... I wouldn't want to relive it. I don't think I'd want to go forward into the future either. Thanks for the thought-provoking post! emoticon

    I sometimes wish I could go back and have a good talk with my self from 20 years ago. It keeps me on track to think that I don't want the future me to have any more regrets so I keep myself pointed in the right direction.

    Since I'm going through Doctor Who withdrawal syndrome (I just started watching and I've run out of episodes) I love the reference! But you have to do this for YOU, not in a memory or an ambition. One pound lost is one pound towards a HEALTHIER you. Making the right decisions pays off in the long run and since (as far as I know) Matt Smith isn't about to show up at my door with the blue box, all we can do is start today and look forward to tomorrow!

    Failure is only wrong if you FAIL to learn from it!

    I can relate to the now, where I am on this journey and hope I can be better in my future.
