It's hard either way.

Wednesday, August 20, 2008

I ran across this thought the other day. "It's hard being fat. It's hard loosing weight. It's hard keeping the weight off. Which hard do I want to experience."

It's so true. I'm tired of being being overweight. I'm tired of having a hard time finding close that fit, or feel like I look cute. I'm tired of running out of energy. I'm tired of eating terrible and feeling terrible because of it.

I see that my kids are starting to have the same habits I have. I don't want that. I want to develop healthy habits that my kids grow up with. Ones of exercising and being active daily. Eating healthy foods and getting rid of sugar. Getting enough sleep. Taking care of this body that my father in heaven has blessed me with. So it's hard being overweight.

It's hard to loose weight. It is. It's frustrating. You have set backs. Your not always motivated. But at the same time... it feels good because you know your trying and doing something about that. You don't have that feeling when your doing nothing.

I'm going to change. I'm going to develop self discipline. I'm going to do what it takes. Here's to the start of a hard but different journey.

    I hear ya! I am hoping I am at the point in my life where I would rather experience the "hard" of being healthy rather than the "hard" of being over weight. Being healthy is a much more gratifying "hard", don't you think? There honestly is not anything gratifying about being fat. I love that quote too! I am going to post it in my home!

    I like that quote. its soo true- its weird when you realize that the effort it took to say no to eating something you know you shouldn't or exercising when you know you should is so small once you've done it- but the effort and energy you use to fight off guilt or anger for doing that you know you shouldn't lasts much longer, and any pleasure you get from eating the bad thing isn't nearly as satisfying as the pleasure you get from knowing you did well the whole day through!
    "Which kind of hard do you want to experience?" that's my new favorite quote...
