You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair. – Douglas MacArthur
Age is a matter of your mind, your thoughts. A 25 year old could be stuck in regrets and despair about their overeating and weight gain, or a 65 year old could be ready for a new challenge in a new day.
We can either choose to waste our present moment by regretting how much we ate and gained in our past, or we can use our present moment to release those regrets and discover what will truly motivate us to lose the weight and keep it off for the rest of our life.
What if you are over (insert age) and feel like it’s just too late? What if you have been “like this” your entire life, and you believe that it is impossible to change? Well, if you believe it’s too late and that you cannot change, then you are right, you cannot.
However, if you change your thoughts and open your mind, then you can take advantage of this very moment and get on the path to change. It’s never too late to change, and it won’t help to tell yourself that you are past “whatever age” and it doesn’t matter any more. It also won’t do you any good to regret the past and berate yourself for the overeating you did in the past, or the time that you did not spend working out.
No matter what physical age you are today, unless your doctor tells you otherwise, you can only benefit your health by losing weight and getting fit.
Just because you are no longer 18-20, your life is certainly not over. This is your life and you can change if you choose to, no matter how long you have been indulging in unhealthy habits. 🙂
