Day 196: Still Riding the Honeymoon High
Tuesday, February 15, 2011
I've started and quit too many diets to count. I've fallen on innumerable "roads to wellness." These experiences make me realize that the high I feel right now as I count points and tell everyone I know that this is it, this is the real thing, is like a honeymoon.
When Husband and I married, our honeymoon period lasted about six months. Then real life got real busy. We started being real with each other. I realized that this is when we absolutely committed to the foreverness of our marriage. We had to let ourselves be real...and neither of us was scared away.
This honeymoon will end, too. And when I become "real" with my relationship to food and exercise, I hope a similar thing happens. I hope I become committed to the foreverness of my plan. Quitting again is not an option.
I choose health.
