Yes I too believe it's a life style change....when I say I have started so many times ...I'm not kidding..LOL....I have done WW for years and just about any other diet...I have gone as far as lipo and a tummy tuck...I know in my heart what I'm suppose to do..I have been lazy and now I'm just done being lazy I want to live and not feel trapped any more .... time for some me time...I started to Belly dance ...and I love it...I want to look nice in my costume's I want people to look at the dance not at me thinking WHY is she dancing..LOL...my husband stands behind me in our change in food habit's and well my small kids don't have much of a say ...lol...thank you everyone for your words of encouragement!! Have an AWESOME day!!! :)
I also have started many times. Sometimes I was mildly successful, but then fell back into my unhealthy ways. This time I'm determined to keep on keeping on! If I don't do great on my eating one meal, so what! That doesn't mean that the rest of my choices for the day (or week, or month) have to be bad, too. I can choose! And I choose to sometimes have a fast food burger and not let it throw me back into an unhealthy lifestyle. I believe we can eat anything we want, in moderation. But we also need to make exercise a priority instead of a sometimes thing.
You can do this!! We can do this!!
"Nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels."
Phil. 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."
I am right there with you having started this process many many times in the past. I think each person has to know when they are ready for it. I am still struggling with knowing in my heart of hearts that I am ready for this entire process. It isn't just the food and exercise it is a total lifestyle change. I personally believe a lot of the process is mental.
