"Love your body and the weight will take care of itself."
This is a mantra I say every day. When I joined SP, I did the new member challenge and we had to pick three inspirational quotes from the website that spoke to us. This was one of mine.
It occurred to me when I gained weight I had stopped loving everything. Myself, my life, my everything. I am a truly joyful person. It isn't hard for me to find delight in the smallest things. I am grateful and happy and have fun.
When I gained weight, I was none of those things. I was sad. I didn't care about anything. I went through the motions, got through the day and hit repeat the next morning. It was awful.
Find your joy. Feed your body what makes it healthy and happy. Move every day. It will help your body and your mind. The rest will follow.
