I said this so often, not living a full life, doing what I wanted because I was waiting to live when I had lost the extra weight.
Life will be so much better when I am thinner.
For many long years I told myself this, I did not do the activities I wanted, and mostly stayed at home.
Life will be better when I am thinner.
I found myself repeating it often. The only hope. It was like looking through a keyhole at another world.
A world I wanted to belong to but could not reach no matter how many diets I went on.
I had lost about 14 to 20 pounds out of the 160 I needed to lose when I was told to stop waiting, live now!
I was told, “Why wait until you are thin, travel, do the activities you want now.”
I was sent to Washington DC for work, I took an evening off and went on a walking tour, then walked around the city. I went out with work colleagues for dinner, and had a great time.
I lost weight.
The more I started doing the activities I wanted the more I enjoyed life and the more the weight fell off.
Live now, enjoy life!
