The other why
Wednesday, July 18, 2012
I started my first ever challenge Monday, one in which if I win, I win the pot. This gives me motivation to do something! One of the things that was brought up is why? Why do you want to lose the weight? I always say because I want to look good and healthy, but I know deep down inside there is something else, there is another why. I've been thinking about it. I have several why's. I want to be here for my grandkids (when that happens) I want to look good (well duh) I want to feel sexy (falls under look good, right?) How about I want to be skinny/healthy for the first time in my adult life? Nope, my why is deeper. I want to lose this weight so I am happy for once in my adult life. I want to feel good about me. I want to prove to myself that I am worth happiness. Self worth, that is my other why.
My official weigh in on Monday was 179.8 lbs. I will post a blog weekly my weigh in and how my week has gone. I will log in daily with my food log and exercise log. I will blog if I need the extra support. I will do my exercise plan that I am waiting for to arrive, at the moment I am walking daily (trying to do it morning and night)
I have the support of my husband and honestly that is all I really wanted this whole time.
