Why do I want to loose weight? Of course my first response is to get healthy but what is the underlying reason.
I've made many changes in my life over the past few months on a path to a healthier me. I'm not sure I have been asked before for the reason beneath the reason the why, the ultimate goal.
So, after a lot of thought and soul searching here's what I have come up with. I want to be around for a long good while. I want to see my grandchildren compete in sports, graduate, go off to college, get married and have children of their own. Sure they may not all follow that pattern they may not compete in sports, they may not get married and they may not have children of their own but that's the truth of it, if I don't get healthy I may not be around to see what happens.
Other reasons are more vain, I want to look good when I look in the mirror. I want to smile when I see my reflection not think geez I really need to loose (insert number) pounds.
I have a weight goal in mind but the truth of the matter is the number doesn't matter, what matters is how I feel not only health wise but how I feel about me when I look in the mirror.
