Disgust & Motivation
While I see no need to ever return to such an extreme number, I would be extraordinarily happy with weighing 180 at this point. As it stands I fluctuate between 195 and 200. It was a slow climb to get here and for the most part I've topped out. Being that I don't do anything different I just seem to maintain and therefore sit idly by hoping to wake up and see a different result in the mirror. I know this won't work, but a small, boyish part of me that still embraces the faciful, occassionally still wishes it were so and thinks it could happen.
But where I am finding myself (at least in this moment) is a place I need to be in order for true change to officially begin. My disgust for the image in the mirror is turning into motivation. And I think that is the key for any of us with out-of-shape bodies. We all have a different threshold as to what we can tolerate or justify away. But there is a point where action becomes the more desirable practice over continued inactivity and calorie-consuming gluttony.
I think I am going to make some changes. How about you?
