I am on a journey, that I know no one can guide me away from with the exception of myself. I know that I want this more than anything, I want to reach my goal and I want to succeed and I want to keep it off in the long run. I want to be healthy, I want to know that I am making a difference in my health, I want to feel confident in myself. I want to know that I look as good as I feel inside (not trying to sound vain) I just want to be able to do and be active and not worry about my weight holding me down. I know that its going to take an active lifestyle to keep the weight off and that I know re-evaluating myself will help me to strive for the better lifestyle. I am writing this because I got a comment from someone stating that I would gain my weight back once my husband comes back, however, I told them that this is something for me, and that I have been working on this for 20 months now and its not like I lost weight because he was gone, I know my reasons for losing and he knows they aren't for him ( not trying to sound selfish) but I am the one who has to dress this body, live in this body and move this body. Its crazy though that some people truly think that when you are doing good, you need to be tested!!!! Its okay because it makes me work harder and I know that this is all paying off.
Its all funny because I gave the advice to someone else who wants to lose weight, yet can't find the time, motivation and support from family, not to let the comments of others effect you on your goals, that you have to do this for you because you want to, not because of what they think you should or shouldn't do.
We do this because we want to, we need to and its to better ourselves, our health and our lives. I am so glad that I have spark friends to share with me the ups and downs on this road to know what I need to do and keep focus because I tell you some folks just don't understand.........
