I was overweight. Obese. I struggled to get rid of weight, and I struggled to maintain weight. I tried different diets, different foods, and different workouts. My weight went up and down for many years.
I changed my attitude. I started changing my thoughts to positive thinking about what I want. I started visualizing how I wanted to look and feel.
As my attitude changed to more and more positive, my environment did too. A more positive environment created a more positive attitude. A more positive attitude created a more positive environment. And so it grew and expanded in that circular way, in many areas of my life all at the same time!
My goal weight was one hundred fifty something pounds, one-five-any number.
I visualized. I visualized myself being fit and toned kayaking wearing a bikini. That was my image of the vision for my weight (and still is).
I released the weight and kept releasing. Surpassing my goal of one-five-any number. Surpassing my goal of wearing the same size clothes as I did in high school. I look and feel better than I did. I am healthier and more fit than I was in high school. I am getting younger, not older.
Now I am curious and wonder what more can I do for my body? How much better can I feel than even this? What more can I do?
I enjoy eating a mostly paleo diet. I enjoy the foods I eat. I enjoy feeling good in my body. I enjoy high energy! The foods I eat taste amazing and satisfy my nutritional body needs and emotional food pleasures. I am fulfilling myself with the foods I eat.
I enjoy yoga, strength training and cardio workouts. I love being outside – kayaking, running, hiking and earthing. I enjoy free flowing movements, my body free of tension and stress. I am fulfilling myself by connecting to nature and myself with my activities.
I have found that the better I feel the more I want to eat the good foods for my body and be more active.
I have desires that have expanded and grown to how I want to look and feel and the strength that I want to have. I want to become a black belt in tae kwon do. I want to enjoy many high adventure activities.
My health and fitness is about physical wellbeing as well as mental wellbeing, emotional wellbeing and spiritual wellbeing.
My health and wellbeing are a priority for me. When I made my health and wellbeing a priority, making the healthy choices for food and being active became easy, fun and good feeling!
