Are you satisfied with your looks? In a World of "You should Be....." it is hard to be satisfied with your looks. Doctors tells us we need to look a certain way and TV telling us we are all overweight, make us feel unsatisfied. Just think about it, What if every one in the world all was in the national guide lines set be the Nutritionists. We would all look the same! We would not need big and tall stores or different sizes. We could all go to the 5 7 9 stores, wear bikinis and have no need for Donut shops.
I have been thinking about those charts. Wondering why is it that someone has decided there is a certain acceptable size and weight for that size. Just think there are folks who live a long time and have never been within the charts limits. The folks that have been in the Chart limits have been diagnosed with cancer and older deceases . Of course there are some heavier folk also diagnised with these deceases also. However I hear more folks say.." I have done every thing right and have stay in the healthy code, yet I got this cancer."
Yes we should have are blood test done and work on exercising to stay strong and fit. Trying to get our energy and body in a healthy mode. We should try not to be so hard on ourselves. Set the goals that we feel is achievable and work towards them. Choose the activities we love to do and do them. Enjoy our life and just take it one day at a time. Slowing down at meal time to enjoy the food and choosing to eat smaller portions.
One more things, Do not allow Doctors or friends control your lives. I would only let them if I was in some medical trouble, Cancer or diabetes, that is when I would heed their words. If I was in Good health, not tired and got plenty of exercise, maintained my weight as well as very little sickness I would not allow their words of Weight control affect my mind.
Remember you are in control of your life. One should be able to measure themselves on their standard. If one feels they would feel better by losing a few pounds, then do it. Now I would love to be down to 150. However will it make me feel better? I really do not know. However I will continue to lose slowly, being able to maintain each pound loss. To me that is the key, Creating a plan that will become a new way of living and become a new daily habit.
I hope that one who reads this will examine their selves to see if the path is one for them or for others. It is known that the one for others will surely fail if it relates to your life. Others may give us motive however it must be our own minds that sets the journey.
