Would I like a second helping?
No thanks, I'm full.
Full of hope.
Full of dreams.
Full of energy.
Full of excitement.
For the first time in forever, I'm full of optimism about the road ahead, full of confidence in myself and my limitless possibilities.
Yes, there was a time not so long ago when I was overweight and overwhelmed. My weight had never been higher; my self esteem never lower.
But guess what? It is within us to change ourselves. To rise up from rock bottom and reach for the stars. To stop holding ourselves back, stop living on the sidelines, stop making excuses and start making some magic happen.
That's what it feels like to me anyway, like some kind of beautiful voodoo. A year ago I felt powerless and out of control; today I feel fit and strong, as though I can move mountains.
Most of the time, I have a point to my posts, even if I cleverly disguise it with bombastic wordplay or juvenile fart jokes. But not today...
Today I'm just checking to let you know that I'm still on my healthy eating path, still living my healthy-living life.
Whether you’re strutting or struggling, whether your days are trying or triumphant, I hope you’re as committed as I am to doing what it takes, whatever it takes, to keep your healthy journey on track.
This day is definitely full of possibility.
