I have really been thinking and reading about this process and why it is so important to me. It really started because we have booked 11 days in Mexico in May/June and I really don't want to go looking and feeling like I do, I admit it is amazing motivation.
But the more I consider it, the more my reasons change. I started on Spark almost 4 years ago, when I turned 30 I probably weighed in at 225-230, not sure, didn't weigh then, but when I started I had dropped a little weight on my own so started at 215. In the last 4 years I have Yo-Yo'd, lost 23lbs, gained 25, lost 30lbs, gained 20...why do I do this to myself?
My 34th Birthday is next week and I have been thinking about how this unhealthy lifestyle will affect my life as I get older. I know it will get harder to lose as I get older, my husband is also overweight, my kids aren't but they eat a lot of junk because we do. If we keep eating crap and not getting daily exercise will we be around to see our grand kids? Will we develop Diabetes or have a heart attack? I just don't know what the future holds, but I do know the whole house has been overhauled and we are all enjoying a healthier lifestyle.
I really don't care about my weight, but I want to feel beautiful and sexy and I want to live to be 90 years old like my Gramma is!
The time for change is now!
