What an inspiration dietgirl is!

Friday, January 02, 2009

I was reading that article on daily spark about diet girl, a women who lost about 175 pounds or so, and mentioned her 20 top tips. I found that last one, no. 20 the most inspirational and one that resonates with me so much. It is this: "Don’t wait to be “skinny” to start living your life. If you have dreams of traveling or writing a book or learning to scuba dive, don’t think you need a smaller bum before you deserve them. Your life is happening right now – so forget about your wobbly bits and jump right in!"

I have always wanted to try something like scuba-diving or surfing but I always thought I was too big to give it a try but as Jillian Michaels says in her 30 day shred video, that if she has 400 pound ppl who can do jumping jacks, so can I. I got to not use my weight as an excuse to not live my life to the fullest which I am guilty of doing often.

    Wow... that is really inspiring! And so true - if 400 lb people on The Biggest Loser can do it, so can I. And it's so true - the time to live is now! Thanks so much. I think I really needed that today.
