A New Outlook

If you knew that for the rest of your life your body would NEVER change, that it would remain the exact same regardless of how hard you exercised or how much you dieted, would you live the same way your living right now?

I dont know about you, but I've recently realized that I no longer have the desire to waste my life hating my body, trying to improve my body, or envying someone elses body. This is what God gave me... period. Today is a new day. No more torturous diets, no more stupid elliptical machine, and no more trying to fit into a size 5 jeans and x-small shirts. God made my body exactly the way He wanted. I'm taking my focus off "thinness" and redirecting my focus to that of heath. If you desire to be free from negative feelings about your body, then join me in vowing to treat your body as a temple to the Lord. Eat well, but dont deprive yourself of treats, exercise, but dont do something you hate just because it burns more calories, and talk with God often... after all who better to talk to than the one who made you? Love your body TODAY, not ten pounds from now.
