Time and time again, I’ve heard how important it is to be healthy for yourself. Not for anyone else, not for a temporary thing.. but just for yourself. I never really knew what that meant. As I was getting ready this morning, though, something just clicked.
I am so sick and tired of feeling embarrassed about where my weight is currently. I am sick of lacking self confidence. I am sick of feeling like I can’t wear certain clothing because it doesn’t look right on me. I’m sick of lacking energy and not sleeping well. I’m sick of not always being my optimistic and happy self! This is it. I’m committing to a healthy lifestyle because I want self confidence. I want to feel good in my clothing. I want to feel like my very best self. I know from experience what eating right and treating my body well feels like. THAT is my motivation and that is why I’m committed to being healthy again.
I don’t know what it was that made this click for me, but I’m glad I found it. It doesn’t feel like a chore choosing healthy foods over something that would temporarily taste good when I think of it this way. I’m doing this because I am committed to feeling my very best physically, emotionally and in every way.
What was your ah-ha moment? I would love to hear it!
