Why I want to lose weight.

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

It's winter and the weight is not coming off. I know why but can't seem to kick the bad habits.
On Sparkcoach today, I was asked in the video to think about why I want to lose weight.
Well it's not to look good, though that is a great benefit.
1. I am turning 60 in a month or two. I want an active old age and I must say that the 20 pounds gone and the exercise are working on that score.
2. I want to live longer to play with my grandchildren and watch them grow up.
3. I'm not done yet with my goals,whether writing or travelling or politics
4. I want to enjoy life and getting less pain in my back and hip would be the same bonus that not having my knees hurt now gives me.

  Could you make some small swap to help your body? make sure you are trying different exercises that challenge you as your body can get used to the same thing regularily.
I think these are great goals. You can do this. Remember to be gentle with yourself and show yourself the same grace you would to your best friend.
Blessings on your journey
