Do you CHOOSE to be fat?
Sounds crazy, right? I mean, in this day and age, with all we know about health and wellness -- and with Hollywood influencing us to look our skinny best, how could ANYONE choose to be fat!
But being fat is as much of a choice as being thin. Once we acknowledge that, we can no longer blame food, lack of willpower, a wedding, party or occasion, our genes or our jeans for our pudgy appearance. Step one of any weight loss program is to take a good look in the mirror, check the waistband of our pants or skirt, and take RESPONSIBILITY for the choices we make every day to either lose weight, maintain our weight or GAIN weight.
Once we realize that the choice is really in our own hands, we can take control of our life. Now, I'm not saying that there are not situations that are out of our control. Certainly, there are. But within the parameters of what we can control (and eating right and exercising most definitely falls within those choice parameters), we can't throw up our hands and blame the world.
