Before I begin, I want to make two things clear: (1) I am not “going on a diet”, and (2) I am not doing this so that I won’t be fat anymore.
Let me explain.
I am not going on a diet. What I intend to do is ease myself into a healthier lifestyle. This involves making better food choices and following the right proportions. It doesn’t mean that I am quitting carbs, because that would just make me miserable. In fact, I’m not quitting anything. I will continue to eat sweets, junk food, and fast food even, but in moderation. That means I can have the occasional bottle of beer or can of soda if I want to. Because really, nothing is more depressing than being on the beach and not being able to open a nice cold bottle of San Mig or Coke. Yes?
I am also not doing this so that I won’t be fat anymore. You see, I like myself just the way I am. If you find that hard to believe then I’m sorry, but you need an attitude adjustment. I am not driven by the prospect of wearing a bikini on the beach (while I drink that ice cold beer, mind you). I tried that, and it didn’t work. Every time I try to lose weight to get thin, it never happens. Because I don’t need to be thin to be happy. I am already happy, and I seriously love myself.
