“When the time is right to lose weight, it must be your choice. It can't be because of someone else's influence; it must be entirely your idea. Your purpose must be clear to you, your goals set and realistic, your expectations clear, and your focus intense.”
~ Author Morris Katzoff
Currently I have been asked to join a Wellness committee from work, to start thinking of how we can inspire other employees to exercise and get healthy.
The idea has been brought up to have a weight loss challenge for money and I am totally against this idea. Why am I against losing weight for $$$ or gifts? Because you won't keep it off, that is why.
You have to mentally prepare yourself and be willing to totally give up how you eat today and learn the healthy way if you want to keep off what you lose.
I would like to see more challenges to get people into exercise. To have a company sponsored team for a race either walking, running or cycling. It would be inspiring to others and help others start wanting to get healthy and fit!
I think sometimes its hard for people to realize that this is your choice. If you want to lose weight, you need to do it for yourself and realize no one else can do it for you. I know I have said this before, but so many people in the world do not get it. This journey is YOUR journey no one else, do it for you and you alone. You can do it!
