The Reason for this Journey

Monday, May 06, 2013

Its time to bring my self back around to the reason why I need to lose this weight and get healthy. Yes, it would be nice to see the lower number on the scale but I know it isn't about that. Part of the reason I guess is for vanity's sake. I would love to go clothes shopping and be able to buy some of the nice things they seem to have in smaller sizes and look in the mirror and feel good about what is looking back at me. I know I would feel better about my self if I took control of my weight and did something about it. When I am exercising regularly I know I feel on top of the world and good about myself. But the most important reason for me to lose this weight is for my health. My dad was a diabetic and had many health problems attributed to that. He loved his food and when he did finally take control of things the damage was already done to his body. I don't want to make the same mistake because I want to be able to spend my older years being active and enjoying myself. I don't want to be taking 10+ pills a day to keep me going, that is not a fun way to live. It is crazy not to do what you need to do to avoid this later in life. We all have control for the most part of what turns our health takes when it comes to illnesses that develop because of poor eating and exercise habits. There is enough out there that we don't have control over when it comes to health, doesn't it make sense to embrace those things you can change so you can have the quality of life you want?

    it takes quite a lot of constant effort, and the results & rewards are only felt years later. you have to keep reminding yourself of that!
I know some people who were diagnosed with diabetes, then they lost weight and poof! the diabetes was gone.
hang on in there.
