We’re just impatient people for the most part. Granted, some of us have longer periods of endurance than others but at some point we all yell “I’m tired of this!” Have you been there, especially in the dieting arena? You know the scenario I’m sure—the seemingly skimpy salads with yucky dressing, carrot and celery sticks for snacks, or worse yet (in my opinion) the flavorless rice cakes. I get tired of these things, too. If you’re on a weight-loss journey, you’re going to have to deal with being tired of the same stuff day after day. It goes with the territory. That’s when you need a boost of thankfulness. Not so much being thankful for the stuff you aren’t at this moment enjoying but thankful that you can appreciate what is placed before you and profit from it. Yes, even in your weakest time with your emotions saying you’re just tired of eating like this, you can see a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel. We forget to be thankful that we do have taste buds to enjoy flavors and textures. I’m reminded of a scripture that says not to grow weary in well doing. Doing a diet, no matter what the plan includes, demands at the center of following through, we’re thankful that we have breath, that we can enjoy all of God’s goodness, and that we have a plan for better health. Change your thinking and recognize that you can turn your ‘tired of this’ moments into celebrations of getting closer to your goal and wellness.
