Why do I want this?

Thursday, November 29, 2012

My SparkCoach session today encouraged me to look at and define the reason behind my wanting to lose weight. There are more shallow reasons of wanting to look better in my clothes (and naked too for that matter), nit wanting to be the biggest among my friends, wanting to be comfortable with myself and enjoy shopping, swimming and other activities where I can't be hidden and cover up.

But the deep, under-lying reasons are more substantial and give more motivation. I want to be healthy and fit to be able to do fun things with my husband and son. I have already sat out of so many things with Jaxon for the first 8 years of his life. I don't want to lose more time. And I don't want to embarrass him or Travis. I want them to be proud of me... And I want to be proud of me. I also want to live a long healthy life, to avoid the diabetes and heart problems in my family tree, and to be around for Jaxon and his future and even his children.

I need to keep working toward my goals and remember the real reason behind it. It IS worth the work. It's my LIFE we are talking about!!!

    That was a very profound question, I need to ask myself that same question!

Best wishes to you on your journey!
