Want to lose weight? Here is all the motivation you need
17th January 2018 - by Petra Mizzi
Our body is our home, each and every one of us lives inside this unique home. Our body needs us as much as we need it. It needs our care, our love, and our dedication.
What we give our body is what it will give us back, if we take care of it, it will take good care of us. If we nurture it, it will grow into a beautiful and comfortable space, which will be our home for all our lives.
Our beauty comes from within and transpires without. What we give our body will determine how healthy our body is.
Our body’s health will not only show in our physical appearance, but will also affect our mental health and wellbeing. We will feel balanced and in harmony with ourselves, and with others.
The harmony from within will guide us through life and its challenges. It will give us the strength to persevere and live a happy and healthy life.
It will empower us to build strong and healthy relationships. Physical and mental health are correlated. Taking care of your body will make you feel good about yourself.
To take care of your body, you have to be active and follow a healthy and balanced diet. At times we neglect our body, we stop moving, we become sedentary and we eat unhealthy foods.
This neglect will not only lead to weight gain, but potentially to other health risks related to obesity. Obesity and health issues bring misery to us and to those around us.
We feel prisoners in our bodies, in our lives, and the only ones who can set us free are none other than ourselves. Only we have the key to set ourselves free from this trap.
We might need help finding the key, turning it in the right direction, but ultimately we are responsible for our freedom.
When we look back and try to understand how we ended up in this overweight body, we sometimes cannot remember how it started.
Neglect creeps in on us when we least expect it. We are caught off guard; too busy with what we mistakenly think is more important in life. We are swept away by this current and comfortably let it carry us away.
We are responsible for our body and if we are not determined, not focused and not balanced, we will fall into the trap again, and again.
The key to happiness has many names: determination, courage, and strength.
We should be determined and focused to never neglect our bodies. We should have the courage to admit our faults and have the strength to get back on our feet and make amends. Everyone can live a healthy life. If we fall, we can pick ourselves up and start fresh. Life gives us endless opportunities to make it beautiful.
3 months is how long it will take us to get back on track. These few months will lead us to a new beginning. We will learn to find our strength and avoid temptation.
This journey will guide us to shed that weight and transform our body into the home we feel so comfortable in.
We owe it to ourselves and to our loved ones. We owe ourselves a second chance. We owe ourselves well being and a happy life.
