I needed a good, motivational, quote this morning after doing my weigh in. And since Lindsay hasn’t been here to give us quotes to ponder, I thought I could fill that void and share TWO quotes with you!
Funny thing about this blog is that last night I had it all laid out in my head and knew exactly what I needed to say. Then, I read those quotes and realized I had it all wrong.
I am interested in losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle. But I haven’t really been committed to losing weight. Other things always seem like more fun, or easier to do. I am made excuses and did things as the circumstances suited me.
Part of being committed means making something a priority. For about the last 8 years my health and body have not been a priority. I can’t even tell you that they have been secondary. Everything else was much more important. But in the grand scheme of things what could be more important than my health?
I am not being hard on myself. Just some tough love. Intuitive eating, regular exercise, and living a healthy lifestyle are not habits yet. I need to stay committed and MAKE them habits.
What do those quotes mean to you? Do they apply to you and your quest for a healthier lifestyle?
