"You can have the results you say you want, or you can have all the reasons in the world why you can’t have them. But you can’t have both. Reasons or results. You get to choose."

Change Resistance

I find it interesting that I have been choosing a known, familiar discomfort over a new but lesser one.


The ‘new’ discomfort (ie sticking to WW points and exercising) has a wonderful reward. Many wonderful rewards actually. Physical, emotional, mental rewards.


And I have always believed that I love change.


But in this case I have continuously returned to the familiar regardless of the fact that being obese is not easier than losing weight and losing weight has so many rewards.


Interesting.

Your rewards for being overweight must certainly be great ones if you choose to stay where you are.

Sometimes, it "pays" to get stuck - but I think the BIGGER PICTURE is so large and vast and all en-compassing that we would be in for a shock if we only knew!
A "good" shock, because I think there is a better way!
Another thoughtful post from you!
