I must have uttered the phrase,
“When I lose weight I’m going to….”
A million times in my life.
I said (and thought) it instead of wearing what I wanted to wear, doing what I wanted to be doing and experiencing what I should have been experiencing.
“Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance towards the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.”
– Harold B Melchart
I don’t think there is anything wrong with having a weight loss goal. What is wrong is thinking you aren’t…
to live the life you want RIGHT NOW regardless of some stupid number on some stupid scale.
Have a goal. Work at the goal. But remember to enjoy the “beautiful scenes” now.
