What do you want?

Saturday, April 27, 2013

I'm thinking about this question today, as I celebrate my 31st birthday.
I think I tend to approach life with an "I want it all"//"Why can't I have my cake and eat it too...what's the point of having cake if you can't eat it" attitude!

Today I was thinking...ok so if I accept the truth that I can't have it ALL, then what do I really want? Do I want to be healthy, or to be able to eat whatever I want, whenever I want? Do I want to be lazy and enjoy slacking off, or be pain-free? Do I want to be safe and protected by my walls (including this wall of fat around me) or do I want to be in real relationships that go to a deeper level?
While the former of each of these choices may be enjoyable or comfortable sometimes, in the long term I really do want the latter things. That is truly living. It's not about giving up things, it's about choosing something BETTER. Here's to the good life! emoticon

    First off emoticon Happy Birthday! I'm so happy you made the choice to change your life while you are still young. Take it from someone who waited far too long to change, and I paid the price with unnecessary pain and sickness due to my obesity. Your story sounds much like mine in the fact one day I decided I was no longer going to let myself indulge in foods that were killing me. I always used the excuse that I don't drink, I don't smoke, and I don't do drugs so leave me alone about my food! It wasn't until I realized food was slowly killing me and robbing me of so many things I want to do, but couldn't because of my size. I'm no longer that person I decided I gave myself 51 years of eating garbage and putting myself last on the list. Now it's time to turn this ship around. I'm feeling so much better since I started losing weight no more knee pain, and I can actually shop in a store for more than 10 minutes! You will be surprised at how quickly what you once thought were sacrifices become part of your everyday routine. Hang in there my beautiful, intelligent friend you are definitely on the right track! emoticon emoticon
