Even though it may sound conceited and selfish, you need to do it for you!
I have stumbled so many times doing it for all the wrong reasons. When I was younger, it was always I need to lose weight to find a man. I was sick of being alone, sick of not having anybody. Many crash diets later, I ended up more alone then ever. Looking back now I should have remembered..
A few years later it was a high school reunion. I "dieted" for months on and off, losing a few then gaining a few. Needless to say I failed miserably. Embarrassed of what people would think, I missed my 10 year reunion. Never again will I have that chance. I hated myself for such a bad decision.
I couldn't figure it out for the longest time, 20+ years I had been obese. Why couldn't I stick to it?
Finally I realized that this is MY life. I had to change for me. I couldn't breathe, I had no energy, and I felt things slipping away from me. I wasn't going to play the victim anymore.
Turning my life around wasn't easy, but it was the best choice I have ever made.
