What inspires you to live healthy?

Friday, September 28, 2012

What inspires you to live healthy? That is a good question.

Simply put...I want to be healthy because I am happy. At 43, my life is in a good place. I am in a happy and supportive relationship. I have a good job. My children are fully-grown and are living their own lives. I feel like it is my time....and from this comes my inspiration.

10 Inspiring Quotes for Healthy Living

    My inspiration is to prevent weight related illnesses. I already have two endocrine disorders and it's a daily struggle. I don't want to deal with anything else. I want to feel well and I won't lie, appearance plays a role. I don't want to avoid cameras or avoid having pictures taken. There are so many other reasons as well.

    Nice blog, btw. :)
