Its a Process

After the BTWG meeting I was kind of thinking how my thought process has changed from when the program began until now. I will have to say in the beginning I was gung ho and my focus was really weight loss. As I reflect now I have to say my focus has changed a bit. Now I am thinking about my total wellness and not so much what the scale says. I have to say that I really don't care what the scale says anymore. Because when you achieve balance the rest is a cake walk...Alright so a cake with no sugar walk :) So then I started to think what it really meant to "be balanced" And my thoughts are....Ok so I am not perfect but I am working everyday on becoming a better person, and having more balance will make me a better Mom, daughter , sister, friend. For me to be balanced is saying that I am OK with living as a single woman because I can finally say I like me. Being balanced is stopping and taking in 10 deep cleansing breaths when you are ready to blow a gasket, or sitting quietly in prayer for 10 minutes a day and talking to God or just sitting with no thoughts at all. It is getting out of the house and doing 30 60 minutes of exercise a day because it makes me feel better physically and mentally. It is eating foods that are good fuel for my body so I can be healthy, and continue to do all the things I still have left to do in this life. Being balanced is not sweating the small stuff because at the end of the day that's all it really is.....small stuff. As I reflect this program is much more to me than just weight loss or the number of pounds I have hoped to shed. I am so grateful for my BTWG community, and the people that work out at PR Fitness because I have never in my life met a more caring, genuine group of people ever and for that I am eternally grateful! Isn't it funny how God can strategically place us exactly where we need to be?
