A lazy Saturday.
I think I have found every excuse not to do something.
So the television’s on and I’m hearing previews for the movie “A Few Good Men.”.
I hear that famous line.
“You can’t handle the truth.”
I sit there for a moment.
I hear myself repeating the line.
My first response is to look at me
I can’t handle the truth!
The truth is all my life I hid from the thing which hurt me the most.
So I decided to ignore the pounds I was packing on.
I chose to wallow in self pity rather than seek answers to my problems.
For many years I laid dormant waiting for changes which would never come!
I became so good at hiding the truth I failed to notice the size clothes I was fitting in or the harmful health effects plaguing my body.
I made myself believe my weight was fine with me.
But it was not the case. The numbers spiraled up and down. I fought to be happy and healthy yet I could always feel the pain.
My shortcomings were not addressed and I failed to face them head on.
The last four months have been difficult. There are so many moments I must look at the truth to keep me going on my journey.
I must refocus.
Weight loss involves truth.
Truth revolves around character, strength, conviction, sincerity and standards.
These values get you to your goals
And help keep you there!!
I am getting better at handling the truth!
It takes time and a lot of effort!
