10 Reasons to Keep On Keepin' On

Friday, March 04, 2011

Some days I get very discouraged, but I know I've got to do this. To keep me motivated to keep at it, I've listed 10 reasons I need/want to keep trucking down the road of healthy living and weight loss.

1. That little, blue dress that I love so very much. I barely ever wore it, and now I can't fit into it. I MUST WEAR IT AGAIN.

2. My kids. I desperately desire to play with my kids without tiring so quickly.

3. Gotta keep that blood pressure down.

4. I love the way I feel when I'm losing weight and exercising regularly.

5. For my knees. Sometimes my knees hurt when I'm climbing steps or exercising. I really believe getting some weight off will help them.

6. I want my wonderful husband to be able to go out with a lady that at least resembles the girl he married. Of course, I'd like that lady to be ME!

7. Class & Family Reunions. Need I say more?

8. ENERGY!!!! Gotta have more!

9. I'm so tired of sliding down aisles in the grocery store where I don't need things, just to avoid someone I used to know before the weight gain. The embarrassment feels like too much to handle. Pathetic.

10. A long life. I want to live a long, productive life, which means I need to be healthy. I know what it is like to lose a parent at a young age, and it can be damaging. God has blessed me with a wonderful family and some great friends. I need to be here as long as I can for them.

    Honey I know how hard it can be ..just remember YOU DESERVE the best YOU! Make this a Life Long Journey to be healthy.. do not make it about a diet.. Diets do not work for the long term. Healthy eating habits with portion control and a body moving plan that works for you! That's what works.. So make this journey about making you and your family healthy and you can learn tools and wonderful foods that are healthy and a life long way to LIVE. Best of Luck!

Sparkle On!
