As I have worked on my weight loss I have came to realize that what I need to focus on is not just the weight loss, but also being healthy and fit. I was taught and have always believed that the body is a temple and now I have the mindset that treating my body as a temple is not just about not smoking or not using drugs or engaging in other destructive behaviors, but also means eating nutritious food, exercising and being as healthy as possible physically, emotionally and spiritually.
