Who knew you could enjoy losing weight and enjoy life before you got to the goal?! It's been a surprise to me! It has become less about the end goal, and more about embracing the change!! I still think it'd be nice to get there, but in the process, I've learned to be happier. How weird is that?!
The attitude of gratitude helps immensely. Learning to appreciate each step in the process is a huge change from any other way I've ever done this before. I used to hate the process, hated the feeling of deprivation and missing certain foods. I quit doing that this time around, I just focus on eating healthier, and when I really want something, I will usually eat it, but in moderation. I also quit making exercise be a chore, and have let it become a lifestyle change, for the sole purpose of feeling good in my own skin!
How do you guys feel about that? How is it working for you on your own journey?
Peace be with each of you!
