Feeling Zen

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

For the past few weeks I have been out of sorts. Not depressed, not UN-motivated, nothing really specific, just not myself. Bod food choices were a big culprit and of course that special visitor didn't help.

For some reason today, I just feel balanced. I feel at peace with life, my choices and where I am going in life.

As much as I like knowing how much I weigh, it has been such a good feeling to go into the gym and not weigh myself. I have been tempted but have held off. It feels very empowering knowing that it doesn't matter how much I weigh. What really matters is that I still want to work hard and eat right. To me that seems like a much more important idea.

For 2 years now I have been solely focused on losing weight. Working out to burn calories and eating only enough to sustain. It feels so much better to workout because I like the feeling. Eating to fuel my body and making the best choices just because I want to.

I know that I am so back and forth. Trying to figure out what life after weight loss is. It's so easy when you are losing weight. You have a road map to follow. Burn more calories then you consume and you will lose weight. Trying to figure out the rest is hard, but fortunately it is doable.

    I feel like i have found a soulmate somewhere in USA. I am far far away from you, but for the past couple of months i have been feeling exactly what you ar3 describing. This is so strange, mmm so ridicilous actually, I also loat aome weight and now I am struggling to find normal. I dont feel like myself in anything, I feel that I am changed a lot psychologically and I am looking at myself from sonewhere else, exercise is the only thing that gives me momentum and keeps me sane. My friend just got a brain cancer and the thoughts cripple in my head, what is the purpose, why not to enjoy what we want to enjoy in life, why not lwt go, etc etx, and then there are sone days when I feel totally in balance,,, ah anyways, wosh both of us a good luck :) and strength, we will need it.
