All my life, I've been haunted by a noun: fat. I carried so much extra fat in my body that it became part of my identity. I didn't have fat, I was fat. The noun became an adjective. The adjective became me.
When I looked at myself I saw fat. I didn't see smart or funny or caring or kind or talented or anything else. I saw fat.
I'm changing that. I'm replacing the fat with fit. Another adjective? No. A verb. Fit isn't something you are, it's something you do. I am doing fit today. I will do fit tomorrow. I will continue to do fit as long as I am able.
The second you start doing fit, you cease being fat. So get up and do it.
