Got a new fat/muscle scale yesterday. Although I almost had a seizure at seeing how many poundss of fat I have to lose, I choose to focus on the fact that I have 73 poundss of muscle! That means that to get to my goal weight(150 poundss) and fat percentage (25%), theoretically all I have to do is keep all my muscle and lose 60poundss of the fat. I know, I know it doesn’t work like that, but I’m playing head games with myself to motivate myself. I choose to focus on what’s right with my body and how to enhance it.
I have muscles underneath all this fat. And one day soon, I will see them. And I will be healthy, I will be strong, and I will be able to do the things I want. I will finally learn to scuba dive. I might be able to start lifting weights again without all my joints hurting. I won’t need help hauling a 30 pounds bag of dog food. I will be able to hike if I want to and I will become a strong swimmer.
Because underneath all this fat, awaits a gorgeous, healthy body. And I intend to find it.
