It didn’t feel like it was a choice.
I didn’t see my diet (health quest) as a sacrifice. I saw it as a road to recovery of an addiction I had developed with food. Life no longer revolved around food. There’s always healthier alternatives, and I made the better choices to assure progress and change. As the weight was falling off, my will became stronger and my workouts were consistent.
And now it’s amazing to see, that the sweat & courage, the determination.
