I am in the midst of reading some back issues of Runner’s World. They interviewed Mike Huckabee who at the time was governor of Arkansas. He was overweight and out of shape. He then worked very hard to lose over 60 pounds by eating right and exercising.
One thing that he stated that helps to motivate him when he is in a situation where there may be food that he is tempted to eat that he knows he should not. He says, “No food tastes as good as it feels to be thin.” This is something I keep in the back of my head when faced with difficult choices.
Which phrase helps to motivate you?
