Why I want to lose weight?

Friday, March 15, 2013

Hmmm interesting question but maybe the question should be what is stopping me from reaching my goals? I don't know.... fear--I don't like to be center of attention so everytime I improve my looks I slip up--I need to embrace the change. I want to be strong and fit. I want to be able to run and play with my son and not be the mom too pooped to play. I want to be healthy--plain and simple I want to live a long healthy life free of pain. I have really bad feet ( since birth) and they are really starting to hurt--I keep thinking if I lose weight maybe the pain will not be as bad--definitely can't hurt to find out. I think more then wanting to be thin--I want to be strong. My workouts are making me feel strong and now I need to become in control of my eating and be strong mentally. I want to look in the mirror and smile rather than smirk and hide from the mirror. I want to lose weight for me --I can do this I know I can!

    I have found small changes done with consistency, is the way I have steered my life ///
Time to go to home depot and get a grandpa weeder for the dandelions,
wire to fix the mower that I do not want to replace. and a new comfort seat.
Need at least one more cushion. Maybe a plant or two will hide themselves in my basket.

    You are speaking my language!!! It is so much more important to me to be strong than to be thin. Thin comes along for the ride while you are working on eating healthy and improving your strength and stamina.

My mom is in her early 70s but looks and acts much much older. She led a sedentary lifestyle and over the past 14 years or so, it's been one surgery or procedure after another and so many medications to manage her chronic pain. I do not want to age that way.

Take it in baby steps every day and you can do this! Great blog!
