I received a few pings on this post.  I am glad that people are taking notice. If you want to be successful in changing anything about yourself, you need to first accept yourself, 100%.

The truth is that you are perfect the way you are, period. We are the way we are, based on all the decisions we have made up to this point in time.  So I have a bigger body, because I chose to eat more and/or exercise less over a long period of time. So what!

Now I can decide that I would like a thinner body. If I truly want that, then I make some different decision. I eat less, eat differently, and move more. It is that simple. It is holiday time. It is hard right now. This minute may not be the best time to start a new diet plan. But the choice is up to you.

I have been thinking about this choice thing for awhile. Let’s look at life just a little differently than the way you may have traditionally looked at life.

We have a soul and a body. The soul is a perfect emination of the Divine One. It was whole from the minute that God spoke the Word. Our body’s are evolving. Some times this evolving body is like a 3 year old. It wants what it wants, when it wants it. So there! I would like to ask myself and all of us… who is in charge? Do we let the body have it’s way, when ever, where ever and how ever it wants? I don’t think so. That is how Tiger Woods got in trouble. Poor impulse control.

You are responsible for your life and your health and your happiness. So am I responsible for my life, my health and my happiness. That means we are responsible for the decisions we make and the actions we take. You health and life depend on it.

How do you get thin(er)? “One healthy choice at a time.” 2010 is a great year to get your health and weight back to healthy. You are in charge. Make good decisions and be consistent, just like you would with a 3 year old. 🙂
