When I first started this journey my main catalyst was an upcoming trip to Vegas for my daughters 21st birthday in March. I also want to be healthy and fit in my life. Now thinking more specifically it is also about the things I used to be able to do and the life style I lived when I was thinner, fit, and healthy. It's about getting my confidence and feeling of self worth back. It's about not being ashamed to see people that I haven't seen in 10 years because of the way I look. Mostly it's about how much I want to have the energy to do things again. I hate huffing and puffing up the steps, or feeling tired all of the time. The worst is not doing the things I used to love to do because I can't physically manage it. I am into my 7th week of this and even though the scale hasn't moved much the last few weeks ( something that would've had me quitting before ) I see positive changes in myself, and through the help her at Sparkpeople am learning to use these changes as motivation to keep going. I deserve to get the life I want if I am willing to work for it and so I'll keep on going to achieve all that I know I can be.
