But What If You Don’t?

I’ve always been as open and honest as possible regarding my journey to lose weight, struggles with self confidence and such, but I came to a realization the other day:

What if I don’t?

I could continue working out and eat healthful foods and I may not lose weight. Or I may lose some weight but not the amount I want. Then what?

Will I resort to more harmful strategies? Will I hate myself for not losing weight? Will I give up and say “fuck it” to all my healthful habits and not care about my health or weight?

Of course not!

Healthful habits – what I eat, how I move, taking care of myself emotionally, mentally, and spiritually- will always be a part of my life! Always!

So if this is the case, then why should I care if I lose weight now?

It shouldn’t – and I’ve just come to terms with that.

So what am I going to do?

I’m going to stop waiting for life to start after I lose weight. I’m going to continue moving my body in ways I enjoy but also to push myself to increase my fitness. I will continue to eat healthful foods but enjoy some of my “guilty pleasures”. And I will continue to work on my mental health.

Because there’s so much more to life than your weight.
