Pay it forward
Monday, September 28, 2015
I've been thinking the last few days, of how, for years and years I abused food. I abused my body, by compulsively overeating, and not once keeping in mind the health benefits of healthy food. Since joining SparkPeople last April, I have been learning and realizing the extent of my self abuse. I also realize that I can be in control of what I eat and how much I eat in order to have a healthier journey through life.
I feel so totally Blessed, and grateful that I am in a place where I can afford healthy food, healthy food is available to me, and I'm gaining in knowledge of what healthy food does to my body.
Because of that, I feel compelled to pay this forward to people less fortunate than I am. I am going to challenge myself to pay forward to others, for every pound I lose. I will donate to our local Food Bank what I feel would be an appropriate amount of healthy food, or dollars to buy healthy food.
I guess, this is a way for me to try and express to others how absolutely grateful I am, that I am learning to appreciate my life and health everyday.
