Oh the things you hear in the checkout lines. Two cashiers yakking it up as I approached the register talking about their fatness and how they don't know how to lose weight.
Of course I am thinking "calories in vs. calories out" as I have heard so many times and come to learn is TRUE! It really is! But I'm not one to just go spouting off about "how you can do it". Most of the time these people have dozens of reasons why it won't work for them anyway.
But then one of the women says to the other "I have a husband, I can be fat now."
Seriously? I think that in itself is a damn good reason to lose the weight and take real good care of yourself. Healthy just might keep you around longer to enjoy your loved ones and have many happy days ahead.
Besides that, I say "what's a husband got to do with it?". Yes, I am in a relationship. But, I am a good enough reason with or without a man to be happy healthy and live my life to the fullest extent possible. Since losing weight and sticking to a regular exercise program, I have gained so much self-confidence. I actually believe in myself today. I have lived the highs of accomplishing some goals that I never thought possible. I ride the wave of determination and success that keeps me feeling that what I am doing for myself is the absolute biggest achievement of my life. I feel like I have found my true self.
Love yourself first. Changing the words around to suit my needs, "I have ME, I can be fit now!"
