Is the goal “thin” – or “feeling good”?

You may have been motivated to eat healthier and exercise because you want to be “thin” – there are certainly plenty of messages all around us telling us that we must look a certain way to (fill in the blank with whatever your goals in life are – to love and be loved, to have the career you want, to be seen and appreciated by others, etc.) You might start thinking of your fitness program – and all you do to feel better, healthier, stronger – as your path to feeling good in the world and just stop thinking about “thin” at all. It’s not really the point is it? The point is about living your life fully day-to-day, in each moment. There is no reason to wait for that. You can start right now, on your next breath. And it doesn’t have to be all at once, just take the next step that is there before you. All you have to do is keep making the choice to do what feels like it takes you closer to who you really are – and I don’t mean the “thin” you, I mean the you who was waiting to be thin to come out!
