Day 12: WHY do I want to lose weight?
Wednesday, January 30, 2013
I used to say to fit into size 7 jeans, and I suppose that is a fine goal. As I age though, my focus has become much deeper.
I want to be healthy. I am tired of being "winded" at the most basic tasks. I want to see my children grow up, I want to play with my grandchildren when I get them.
I want my life insurance to go down and I want to throw the blood pressure pills in the garbage. My Mom Told me once you go on BP meds you can never go off of them. I disagree.
I want my life back. I am tired of feeling achy. I want to feel good. Eating right and exercise gives me self empowerment. I am doing this for so much more than a pair of size 7 jeans.
