At church on Sunday we heard from our Stake High Councilman, Shane Larson. His remarks were centerd around transition and change. Although his talk was aimed at spiritual change and transitions, I applied it to my new eating plan.
Brother Larson quoted Yoda in his talk (see title above). I reminded myself that I'm not trying out a new lifestyle. I'm making a complete lifestyle change.
Another quote he used that I appreciated came from Anni Macbeth. She said, "Resisting change is like holding your breath. And if you're successful, you're dead."
For me that meant that if I resist changing my lifestyle and persist in being overweight and addicted to carbohydrates, I'll probably have a shorter lifespan. But if I change my eating habits, I'll not only live longer, but enjoy those days and years in better health.
