Being present in the current moment is the foundation of life, and successful weight loss. Being present means being aware of the events unfolding around yourself at any point in time. It means finding the joy and happiness of being alive.
Often, weight loss seems like a daunting task, and a lot of work. It’s only one way how to perceive the process. What if it was an adventure to your true authentic self?
What if life is an adventure filled with challenges for us to overcome?
Perception of events is Everything!
I look at weight loss as an opportunity to become myself. It offers an opportunity to make lifestyle changes, and to feel better. At almost 55, I feel better than when I was 50. Age does not relegate us to a medicine cabinet full of prescription drugs and obesity.
In my 40’s, my doctor told me that I could never lose the weight, and not to worry about it. It triggered the thought “So what! I’m 40. What difference should that make in attaining my fitness and weight loss goals?”
We have a choice. We make these choices with every decision we make. It comes down to the food we put in our bodies, whether we go for a walk, or how we react to a situation. It is all part of our make-up, and how we perceive our lives.
Challenge to Those Who Accept. . .Take time to look at your attitudes towards food, physical activity, and weight loss. Decide if these attitudes contribute to your fitness and weight loss goals. If not, decide if you want to change them. . .
