Here is my question to you, please feel free to answer it or leave a comment below.
If you stayed at your current weight, would you be happy?
Could you go through the next 30,40, 50 years in the shape and weight you are right now and be happy?
Some people might think and tell you that your physical appearance should not be tied to your happiness or state of mind, I say they’re wrong.
So many people are consumed…yes, consumed, with unhappy thoughts because they’re over weight and out of shape. They live in a constant world of darkness with outward smiles and inward pain.
Before you start telling me I’m wrong or having an argument with the words you’re reading, let me say…I’m speaking from first-hand experience.
When I was at my heaviest (225lbs + ) there were days that all I could think about was how much happier I would be if I could just lose weight. Then there were days that all I could think about was which decadent food I would eat next. Often while I was eating mouth watering, fat filled, calorie packed garbage.
It was a vicious cycle and I am still tormented by it today.
I know I am happier now for a few reasons. Being over weight is not an all consuming thought. I am able to be active and do activities that I never dreamed of doing before. I am happier now because I don’t beat myself up meal after meal, which is exhausting. I don’t shy away from mirrors. I don’t hide my body in baggy, bulky clothes.
If you aren’t willing to make some sacrifices then you need to make peace that you are where you are and your weight will not change, but it will probably get worse. That’s just the way the aging cycle works.
In fact, and this is not to fear monger but to open your eyes…your weight will go up. Getting older and not being active means you slow down. Your hormones are involved (menopause) your metabolism slows to a grinding halt, add in stress and you have a recipe for obesity.
What will your life look like in a year, 2 years or 5 years if you continue to do nothing?
What will you feel like in a year, 2 years or 5 years if you continue to gain weight?
I guarantee…I mean I guarantee that if you start to put focus on your health you will feel better, you will stop feeling fat, ugly and miserable. Today is your day. Monday is the start of a new week…you get to start doing something-anything that will help you get into shape.
If you do nothing and keep doing nothing you will be unhappy…plain and simple.
The emotional side of being overweight is so mentally taxing but aside from that you are taking years off of your life…which is a fact. Why would you want to do that?
Today is your day. Today is the day that you will make healthy choices and do some real physical activity.
I said in the subject line…if everyone knew this, no one would be fat.
If they knew what?
Losing weight isn’t a chore. It isn’t depriving yourself. It isn’t avoiding great food. It isn’t as hard as you think.
Losing weight is freeing. It is opening yourself up to new possibilities. It is getting more out of life. It is extending your life. It is taking pride in yourself and honoring God. He didn’t make any junk, but that doesn’t mean He’s good with you looking junky either.
Here’s what you need to do.
Stop being OK with where you are and do something about it. Make a change.
