Everything I've Gained

Last night as part of my Wellness Coaching assignment, I completed a "Well-Being Assessment." The assessment addressed the importance, readiness, and confidence in each of the following categories:
  • Energy
  • Sleep and Stress Management
  • Life Satisfaction
  • Life Balance 
  • Weight
  • Exercise
  • Nutrition 
  • Health Issues
I was pleased with my answers to most of the questions. I  seem to have a solid grasp on most areas in my life. I was particularly pleased with the "Weight" category.  It asked you to record: Current weight, 1 year, 2 years, 5 years, and 10 years. As I wrote the decreasing numbers on each line I relished how much hard work and dedication I have put into losing weight and maintaining my weight loss. The weight loss directly correlates to me feeling better about myself, gives me a brighter prospective, and enhances my overall livelihood. I'm so very happy that I made the decision to confront my weight. Taking the assessment helped me put into prospective all that I've really achieved by losing the weight and taking a holistic approach to my health. I've said this many times before,  "It's not what I've lost, but everything I've gained."
