Why is it that most people are willing to make a commitment to be with another person when they haven’t made any kind of commitment to themselves for a healthy and fit life? A lot of thought, time, money, and preparation goes into a wedding. We should be planning our own healthy vow ceremony first. Throughout life, people make promises, pledges, guarantees, and covenants. For those of us that have made real commitments to our healthy selves, we’re probably in the minority.
Why don’t we respect our own bodies enough to commit to them before we’re willing to commit to anyone or anything else? We’re worth it. For some reason, we feel the need to discount our own health needs because of careers, relationships, families, and everything else that goes on in our lives.
We’re here now. This (life) is NOT a dress rehearsal. Don’t look back with regrets on not getting fit and healthy. Personally, I have regrets in my life, but this is not one of them. I only wish I had done it sooner. If you have struggled with weight loss, eating, and being out of shape, I have to tell you that becoming fit and knowing “how” to eat healthy, is the best feeling in the world! Commit to yourself.
