Change your why
Thursday, February 06, 2020
I have been reflecting lately about how things come to be and the question I am always left with is why?
Why is it so hard for some to overcome weight issues and so easy for others? Why does one thing make me fat and not the other person? Why do I have to be so careful with my choices and others don't? Why do Oreo cookies have to taste so good?
Then I take pause and I realize why is just an excuse to not focus on me and what I need to do. It is an excuse to feel sorry for myself. It is an excuse to not want to put in the effort. The truth is this is my journey and I should accept it and do it to the best of my ability.
Maybe I should be asking...why am I sitting on the couch instead of exercising? Why am I not choosing the right foods? Why do I keep buying Oreo cookies if I have no control?
I guess I just need to make sure I change my why.
