Remind me again why I'm doing this...

Friday, January 04, 2013

Sometimes we all need a remind of why were are doing this? Doing what you may ask? This journey of weight loss.

I call it a journey because that it is what it is, an adventure of sorts. I know that I am on this journey to become healthy and fit. Some of us are on this journey for a different reason.
We need to remember that we are in this together and we are not alone.

Weight loss is never easy. For some, it is a total lifestyle change; for others, returning to their previous healthy eating habits.

For me it is a little of both. I have been reflecting on my life over the past year. I accomplished much more than I thought I had. This year has been an up and down year. On the upside are beginning to run, running a 5K, moving, finalizing my divorce. On the downside are getting sick while moving, losing my grandmother, being inactive for several months.

Those are just a few of the highlights of my year. I could go on. I just keep reminding myself that I am doing this for me. No one else but me. I'm the only one who can do this. There is no magic pill, wand to wave over me, etc. Me that is who is doing this with my own willpower, determination, and body.

That is why I am doing this. Why are you?

    I am doing this to extend my life, I suffered a serious stroke 10 years ago, and I am on NO medication (except vitamins) because of losing the weight. I am at a point in my life where I want to be at my absolute best. I am also a college student, and honestly don't think that I will make through college unless I lose weight, because I need to learn that kind of discipline in order to accomplish my goals. I also want to look like the person on the outside that I feel like on the inside. I have fought with weight my whole life, and I'm ready to end that battle for good. I have lost 80 lbs and I need to lose about 50 more to get my goal! THIS IS THE YEAR TO DO THIS!

    I'm doing this because deep down I know that my outside shell no longer matches my inner being. She's vibrant and fun and oh so sexy. We can only hold that image of ourselves in our heads for so long before a mirror gives us a reality check. Health and fitness...yeah those are important too. But ultimately I need to be the me that everyone knows me as. I buried her and she wants OUT.
