I decided today I can’t hate/complain/be annoyed/unimpressed/disappointed with myself for being overweight if I’m not putting the required effort in to change it. Because complaining I’m fat and wishing for a change doesn’t create one.
Liz is another blogger I’ve been following over at http://one-twenty-five.tumblr.com/ for inspiration. She’s come a long way, has done some amazing things, but being healthy is something she still has to work on all the time.
Her post reminds me wishing for change doesn’t make it happen. I have not right to hate my current situation if I’m not making a concerted effort to change it. Kind of like if you don’t vote in the Presidential Election, you can’t complain about who wins.
This also makes me thing ahead to the future. WHEN I DO REACH MY GOAL, I’ll still have to put in alot of effort to maintain. I won’t just magically be able to eat whatever the hell I want and hang on the couch and expect my new awesome body to hang around.
Becoming healthy means getting healthy and staying healthy.
