I don’t know a single person whose life purpose is to lose weight. Talk about a Sisyphean task. You’re losing those 5 pounds, only to gain them right back, or perhaps you gain back 6 pounds. You’re pushing the same boulder up that mountain, watching it fall, then pushing it back up. When will it end?
There is so much more to life than losing and gaining the same few pounds over and over. Your life is more than dieting, excessive exercise, and deprivation. Choose to find your real purpose.
