not just about fitting into a smaller size

While it’s not nearly as alluring as fitting into a size [blank], I feel a connection to my body that goes deeper than just the physical.  The human body can do some pretty amazing stuff. When I’m caring for my body, I’m able to deal with stress better, I sleep better, my mind is clearer, I have more energy, and I can honestly say I’m happier. Most of all, I’ve found that discipline is incredibly empowering. I think this quote by H.A. Dorfman says it best:

Self-discipline is a form of freedom. Freedom from laziness and lethargy, freedom from the expectations and demands of others, freedom from weakness and fear—and doubt…. [self discipline] allows one to feel their individuality, inner strength, and talent. He [or she] is master of, rather than a slave to, his thoughts and emotions.
