My Changing Life

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I'm participating in the BLC21. One of the items on our weekend challenge is to journal or blog about, "How will your life change when you reach your fitness/weight goal? How will you feel?"

'tis a wonderment.

My life, up to this point in time, is nothing like I expected it to be. That's neither good nor bad, most days. It's just very different. I learned a long time ago that my expectations were not going to happen. I adjusted, and made new plans. That's important, that adjustment part. You see, if I had tried to stay on just that one narrow path I had originally outlined for myself, I would have missed out on SO many of wonderful things I've experienced so far in this life. Sure, there have been difficulties and sorrows, but that is a part of life. It doesn't define it. So, I adjust, take stock, make new plans, make changes, and continue living.

I have no idea how I will feel once I've reached my fitness and weight goals. I have even less of an idea of how my life will change, if at all. Oh, there have already been changes, but I'm thinking that THAT is definitely going to be an ongoing process, even after I've reached my goal weight. I am able to do more now, than what I was able to do 6 months ago, and even 1 month ago. I feel better than I did 6 months ago. I have more energy. I have more stamina, and that is improving! I am able to participate more in the things I enjoy doing, and I continue to want to try new exercises and fitness activities.

No, I really have no idea what changes lie in store for me. But I am sure of one thing. There will continue to be many more changes ahead, and I am looking forward to them!

    I really like your attitude. Sounds like a winners attitude to me.

    For sure life is all about changes. And some of them may not be what we envisioned, but that's a life lesson . . . to learn healthy ways of dealing with change.

    HUGS. You've given me lots to think about.

    when change comes you have two choices--embrace or reject. you have chosen the former, which means your life will always be full of wonderful new things. you seem to have a mind that loves to solve problems and find ways to adapt. you will always be learning and growing, which means your life will always be full. great attitude and great choices. this is a role model for me--and i will remember your words!
    have a wonderful day--i know you will!

    You have a great outlook on life. I meet people who only moan and groan about the trouble they have in their life. But everyone has trouble! Its all in your attitude.

    Making the effort to change things in our lives in a positive way is fabulous, and can only lead to a better life in the future! I'll be seeing you there.

    I really think we need that flexibility. I too have done so many things in my life that were not on my radar by any means! I bloom where I am planted. As far as what my life will be like when I get to my goal I think it will be a tough row to hoe. I think we fantasize about how wonderful it will be but I think it will have many ups and will require a lot of work to stay there.

    I still think it is a better option than where we are now. We can work at it from here or from our goal weight. I choose the goal weight!

    I do like my hair I think.

    I think you will continue to have more energy. And one day you'll tell me ... "Give us more exercises where I HAVE to get down on the floor emoticon "

    Whatever lies ahead, though, you will meet and greet it with a emoticon

    What a great attitude! emoticon I think too many times we get bogged down with what/how we think things should be, and then lose our foucus. A great reminder to be flexible with how things are.
