This is my body And I live in it It's 23 and 10 months old And it's changed a lot since it was new It's done things it wasn't meant to do I often try to fill it up with wine And the weirdest thing about it is I spend so much time hating it But it never says a bad word about me This is my body And it's fine It's where I spend the vast majority of my time It's not perfect But it's mine -Tim Minchin, "Not Perfect"
I spent many years thinking that I was powerless to lose weight permanently. I DO have the power to change, however, because I have a choice, and it's mine to make each day. A healthy lifestyle is all about making the best choices we can along the way, not about being perfect. When I don't 'feel' like eating right or exercising, I remind myself that it's my choice--no one else can make it for me--and that usually motivates me to do what I know I need to.
