Motivator of the Day???? Nov 26, 2009
Thursday, November 26, 2009
Okay, I'm not always the brightest lightbulb on the string. Until this morning, I didn't even know there was such a thing as a Motivator of the Day - but, apparently, there is and I'm it today.
Wow. I am humbled and honoured beyond belief.
My journey of recovery from obesity has been an intense exploration of myself. Sometimes, while wrestling with a particularly difficult aspect of my life that was feeding my obesity and keeping me overweight, I have felt very selfish - turning so much energy inward seems selfish even though everyone in my world has benefitted from the happier, more serene me that a little selfishness created.
And now, I discover that it is helping, in some small ways, others. I am chuffed with pride to think that someone out there is eating a little better today because they were inspired by my story. It isn't easy, this thing called healthy lving. But I know if a chronically obese middle aged woman with asthma, hypothyroidism, IBS and arthritis can change her life and live a healthier, happier life, then you can too.
Thank you - I don't know how this decision came about, I can't even find the page where I'm featured but, thank you.
