I am participating in SparkCoach and today's motivational video challenged me to think about why I want to lose weight. Well, for me, it's relose weight as I have regained around 35 pounds after losing 80 about 4 years ago.
When I initially lost weight, I wanted to look better in clothes and feel good and be able to play with my silly nieces and nephews. At one point, I was planning on joining the Army, which helped me get the last 20 pounds off and start running.
Now, I am married and, well, fat. I don't know if I have a reason right now to lose weight like I did before. I have lost about 9 pounds this year only to gain 16. Yes, I want to be healthy and I can't afford to by a bigger wardrobe; I have two drawers full of pants I can't quite squeeze into right now.
Hopefully, if I focus on trying to find the main reason to get back to where I was, I can find one. Sometimes, I just need time to mull over an idea and it will eventually hit me in the face.
