Have you heard the saying, “Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels?” Well..I have a different saying.
NOTHING tastes as good as being HEALTHY feels…
I will never be “thin.” I will be healthy. I will be healthier than I am now. And…nothing tastes as good as it feels to be healthy.
I need to remember this when I am staring at a bowl of cheese dip or a Hershey bar.
I need to remember this when I decide NOT to eat the fish but instead have pizza.
I need to remember this when I don’t feel like working out.
I need to remember this when I’m tired of being on a weight loss roller coaster.
I need to remember this when I am thinking of quitting.
I can now relate this to my current half marathon I am working toward. Am I going to do all this training to just give up at the end? Am I going to run almost the whole race and then walk off the road right before I get to the finish line? No way! I am going to finish this darn thing. I worked for it, now I am going to finish, get my medal, put the 13.1 car magnet on my car but most importantly, I am going to feel so darn proud of myself!!!
I am also going to finish this weigh loss journey. I am not “there” yet. I am about at mile 12 in a half-marathon. I can see the last mile but I am not finished. I am going to get to Weight Watchers goal and get my Lifetime key chain but most importantly, I am going to feel so darn proud of myself!
You know why I am going to do all of this? Because…
I just need to remind myself that NOTHING tastes as good as being healthy feels.
NOTHING tastes as good as getting to goal feels.
