John Marsden Writing Topic #129
‘If you want to truly understand something, try to change it.’ Try changing something, then write about any new understanding of it that you have gained.**
I have recently started to improve my health by eating better and less, exercising more and subsequently losing weight. I am trying to lose 40 kgs and so far I have lost 4kg already.
I have tried to change my body and lifestyle for the better and since doing so, I am starting to understand what my body is capable of. It is capable of walking long distances, it is capable of making subtle changes to itself for the better when worked on, it is capable of growing stronger after years of weakness, it is capable of healing after injury. I am also starting to understand how and why my body got to the state it did.
