More from Steve #36:
Fat people choose pleasure over discipline.
Fit people choose discipline over pleasure.
Fat people focus on foods that taste good, no matter what the long-term cost may be. Fit people exercise discipline by putting long term results ahead of immediate pleasure.
Fit people are acutely aware of this and choose to gain their pleasure from the increased energy, vitality and overall good health they experience as a result of developing disciplined dietary/exercise habits.
Discipline is an investment and pleasure is an expenditure.
Critical Thinking Question: Are you aware of the danger of consistently choosing pleasure over discipline???
Action Step: Begin to monitor whether you’re choosing pleasure over discipline or discipline over pleasure in all areas of your life. Look for correlations between your successes and the times you choose discipline.
INconsistency has been one of my down falls since regaining weight from the great 2017 weight loss. The thought of going without AGAIN jacked with my diet mentality something fierce. Right now … my attitude is I WILL get to where I am going, it’s not a race and I can enjoy what I chose to eat. But chose what will get me to my goals. Using the ol’ Weight Watchers food exchange program … gives me the flexibility to do just that.
Many programs ask you to list your alllllll time favorite foods. So, I asked Hubby:
Chicken fried steak
Key lime pie
German chocolate cake
*Blue Bell Homemade vanilla ice cream
*Sweet potatoes skillet fried
*Hot Italian sausage
Hmmm … the * items Hubby has seldom, occasionally, infrequently … not very often. The others … he has once or twice a … YEAR. And these are his alllll time favorite foods he would cry if he never, ever got them again.
Hmmm … did I mention in the 44 years I’ve known him other than a second when his brain medication had him fluffy … he has weighed 165-170. He is a fit person that is not necessarily … disciplined … purposely self-controlled. He enjoys these foods WHEN he eats them … but they are NOT his main stay of selected foods. He gets pleasure from life instead of … food.
So … a fat person can have discipline and pleasure … when you are consistent with your diet, exercise and mental toughness???
Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.
Coz … I want to be ME.
