Choose Your Body!

Choosing where you are is important. You can be in traffic, and whine, curse and complain. Doing so to an extent is not “bad”. After all, complaining does several things: it gives us an access to who we are, our needs, and wants; it offers us an opportunity for some intimacy and sharing with close ones; and it gives us an opportunity to see things that we are not fond of in life, and a chance to transform them or go get what we want!

At the same time, we can choose where we are and trust the Universe that we are exactly where we need to be. This includes our bodies. This comes down to loving yourself. After all, many people do not have their health, and doing something as simple as breathing or walking is difficult. Our bodies are miracles. Love your body. There is only one you in the Universe. Love yourself! You are beautiful! And if someone else says that you are not, so what? Think so! And if you don’t think so – think so! You will end up believing it!

Unless you love and accept your body before taking on working out, one of the following will happen: 1. You struggle in and hate the process of losing weight; you try and try again, and your weight keeps yo-yoing; you never lose weight; and you lose weight, keep the weight off, yet are never truly free and happy.

After you accept your body, whatever shape you are in, you get to choose how you want to look. Before starting an exercise program, you must get a medical check-up. This includes if you have had one at any time before six months. Health is most important. If you have a bad back or knee and the physician, chiropractor, or physical therapist tell you not to do certain exercises, listen to them. You get to set the goals for yourself. You do not have to look like anyone you know or anyone in a magazine.
