I saw a commercial for a weight loss product that exclaimed, “Get the body you deserve!”
Truth be told, I have exactly the body I deserve – if by deserve you mean “To have earned or merited.”
The thing is, I do just enough to maintain where I am – which is about 10 – 15 pounds overweight depending on the chart you look at. I know I eat too much and I work out mostly to support my eating habit. If I actually did what I need to do to deserve the body I want I’d eat less and work out more.
“Deserve” can also mean “to be worthy to have.” In that sense of the word, heck yeah I deserve the body I want. And so do you. Now we just have to earn it.
