losing weight - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
It was a sunny day near Christmas when I met the old lady. I sat near her because she was alone. We talked for a while about what ailed her, and I gave her the telephone number of someone who could help get her back on her feet and into a cycle of positive health. Yet somehow, in the cosmic scheme of the universe, I realised that she had given me advice that was worth as much or more. As I'd reached for one mince pie after another, and offered to bring her one too, she simply commented that she didn't eat between meals. For her generation that was normal, a skill learned in childhood and carried on into adult years. After many failed attempts at different weight loss methods, I gave it a go. Three simple meals, all nutritious and portion controlled, no snacks, plus simple exercise on most days - all from YouTube videos or riding a bike. I lost the weight easily and kept it off. Self control is a battle worth winning, being your own "boss" feels great.
There is a stepping stone on the pathway to losing weight called "self love." So wear clothes you feel good in, learn what is great about you, find those who appreciate you and raise you up. Say kind words to yourself, your own thoughts matter. Follow your passions, inspire others to follow theirs. Become your own idea of what a good person is. Do that for as many months or years as you need to, then one day, when you are supported by the stone of self love... the ability to become fitter will be within reach.
