Spark Coach wants me to analyze what my true motivations are for losing weight.
Maybe I'm shallow, but I want to be thin. I can break that down better: I want to feel good in clothing -not have it pinch and pull or sag in the wrong spots because it's so big to fit on others. I want to fit in the student desks at school. I want to have my boobs stick out farther than my belly does. I want to see my toes when I look down. I don't want to lift my belly fat up to clean underneath it in the shower.
I want to have less pressure on my joints. I have arthritis and the extra weight makes my body even more painful.
I want to look better than my husbands ex. (I said I may be shallow)
I want to reduce my risk of heart attack . I'm already lowering my cholesterol , but I will celebrate the day my hip to waist ratio is no longer a risk for heart attack. I can think of better ways to die...
I want to honor my body by eating in a more healthful and conscious way. I no longer want to be greedy and eat myself sick. And I want to honor it by exercising it, toning it, giving it more "fun time" and less desk time.
I want to look, feel and be healthy.
