My friend Sheri posted this one the other day:
Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels!
She went on to babble about chocolate – but it hit me in the gut and made me think. I gotta thank her for that one. I thought of this one while running tonight:
You will never feel better if you eat because you feel bad!
Now, as I sit here typing this, watching the Biggest Loser – season 12 – I hear another one:
You have to find your inner WHY!
I kind of think I lost my inner why. I got off track about a month, or two, or three again. Riding, living, eating, having fun and not focussing on getting down to my healthy weight. On one side, that is good. I have enjoyed myself. I rode lots, ran some. Ate some, maintained my weight reasonably well. I went up 5, down 4, up 3, down 6, up 2… all what I would call normal and usual human fluctuations. I decided I would go back… I still remember how I felt in March. Disgusted. I’m not there yet – but I’m getting there. As strange as this may be – I feel almost like a role model and I don’t want to turn back. Some of you may know, my cousin Nathan has joined the fitness/weight loss cult and is doing very well. I read his blog, his twitter … I see his enthusiasm and I dont want, at any time, him to look to his cousin and at not least have him see me do something positive. At most – I don’t want to show him negative. Lately – I don’t feel like I’ve been inspirational or role model.
So here it is… time for change. Time to restart doing what did me well in the beginning. I see a lot of positive in my life. I didn’t completely go backwards. I haven’t gained back everything I lost. I have a seeming good attitude/slogan. Anybody else in?
BTW – Nathan is coming down from Rochester, NY in July to give he Peachtree a go! Should be good…
