My weight loss journey is not a punishment!
Wednesday, October 09, 2013
I had an a-ha moment today. Sometimes I consider eating healthy and exercising a punishment because I'm morbidly obese. Too many times, I have eaten healthy foods grudgingly. Too many times I've rolled my eyes at exercise as if it's something terrible.
Something has changed though. I am starting to like healthy foods. I'm starting to prefer them over my old junk food. I'm seeing how I am blessed to have good food to choose. I have the opportunity, the gift, of eating healthy food.
Exercise is different too. It's not something I'm doing just because I need to do it. I'm doing it because I like it. I like walking. I like training for a 5K. I like seeing how many wall push-ups I can do. Again, I am blessed to be able to exercise.
Wow. What an awakening for me. I've got so much to be thankful for.
