It Depends

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

" It depends " is almost always the right answer to any big question." Linus Torvalds

A lot of us are wondering will I lose weight? How much will I lose ? How long will it take me? Will people like me more when I lose weight?

The simple answer to all of the above is It depends.....

On how often you exercise. How clean are you eating? Are you getting the proper sleep and staying hydrated? How much stress do you allow to enter your life and how do you handle it when it shows up.? Are you changing other aspects of your life that got you here?

It depends......

On you and only you. You hold the key to your weight loss. You play the cards to make a winning hand out of the cards you were dealt. You have control over your body .

You may have to make a new schedule. you may have to drop a few friends and find more like minded ones. You may need to say no more often. You need to listen to your body and what it needs . You need to know when you need help from friends, loved ones or doctors. You need to know what is right for your body .

It all depends... On YOU . How much do you want it.!!!

    It does indeed all depend! How committed are we? Will we stick to it long term? Great blog once again! Thanks for sharing it with us!
I really like tea but I never thought about taking it to work but it really makes a difference for me to stay warm since I usually drink cold water all day. Now I use the same tea bag for a few cups and just like to drink the warm water that is lightly flavored after the first few cups.

    Jo - you are such a great writer !! So true every word ! Its sounds like it might be mean to limit yourself to the friends that a like minded but its the truth . Its impossible to be supportive to so many at one time with removing the personal touch - Hugs K emoticon
