I don't know if I watched too many cartoons as a kid but sometimes I imagine 2 different forces in a battle of fat vs. fit. Each represented by a guy on each shoulder.
Sometimes you just have to tell your fat guy to shut up!
I am so glad that I am finally listening to my fit guy. It doesn't mean fat guy is going to stop showing up but if you listen enough to the voice that encourages and lifts you up, the easier it is to send fat guy packin.
