"Sometimes the feeling only comes after you do it.
You have to do it to feel it."
Pretty smart for a 22 year old woman.
She is right. And I think it applies to taking care of our health. If you wait until something external motivates you it may be too late. But if you tell yourself that you want a healthy body, even if it means no more sour cream dip, fudge, or potato chips, and you start to do it, you will feel it. It is a positive cycle that takes on a life of it's own.
For those of you who are waiting for that big flash of inspiration I say:
You have to do it to feel it.
