My why

Saturday, February 02, 2013

I am supposed to have solid reasons why I want to accomplish this goal of getting into shape and losing the weight. Apparently just wanting to be fit is not good enough, I need to know WHY. In order to commit to it I need to dig deep and see the big picture. I have been trying and have thought of many "classic" reasons who sound good but mean little to me. I want to play with my kid... I already play with my kid. I want to improve my health to stay healthy enough to meet my grandchildren (my poor kid is 9 :).. I have no health issues that I need to correct. They are excellent reasons but aren't real to me. I was starting to panic a little. What if I don't have a deep down reason, does that mean I won't get there, I won't succeed???? and then it hit me. I want to FINISH IT. I am tired of quitting, of "failing", of falling apart. My big WHY is that I want to prove to myself and anyone else who cares :) that I can do it. I can take control of my life, my emotions and my weight and be the person I know I can be. Phew, panic over :)

    Do it for future YOU.. so you can live a long, healthy, happy life. The sooner you start the more likely this will all be to become habit.

  Finishing it is a good enough reason for me. Yes you can do it.
So can I. Just relax and DO IT! emoticon
