Coming home from the gym, I noticed a bench with a McDonald's ad on it. I haven't had McDonald's in around 5 years and I'm glad I haven't. Still, I found myself feeling trapped. I wanted the freedom to be able to eat whatever I want whenever I want.
Then I realized I have that freedom. I'm an adult and can choose to eat whatever I want. I have a choice, I can either eat crappy food and enjoy myself until the diarrhea sets in, or I can eat food that's good for my body, exercise on a regular basis, and enjoy how I feel and how I look now that I've lost all the weight.
This isn't just one decision. It's a choice I have to make multiple times every single day. The healthy lifestyle won't win every time, I just need to make sure I make the right choice most of the time.
