Day 10 - Why am I here?

Thursday, June 06, 2013

I've been flopping basically all the time so I thought that I ought to lay out exactly why I am here. Why I am doing this.

- Because I feel better when I am healthy. My head is clearer, I feel fresher, I am more productive, I am less grumpy. I am just a better version of me.

- My skin is clearer when I eat better.

- The feeling when I manage things I couldn't use to do. The feeling when I finish a run or a set of reps. The feeling when I can run faster or further than someone else.

- I am sick of being judged for my terrible eating habits. I am better than that and people should know it. :D

- I really don't want anyone else to ask me if I'm pregnant. I've had quite enough of that, thank you.

- My dad has a lot of problems with his knees and my mum's family have a lot of health problems. Better to get into healthy habits now than to face the consequences later.

- I am sick of looking at other women and thinking, god, if only I looked like her. It's not fair on me or them!

- Because I am 19 and I don't feel comfortable in clothes for people my age. I don't want to wear a bikini this summer, I don't like the way I look in tight clothes or short dresses.

- Because I'd really like my boobs to shrink!!

- Because the lessons I learn here are very important to the rest of my life.

- Because I will study better and work better if I am healthy.

- Because I'd want to be able to survive if I fell into a fantasy novel.

- Because I hate being sick.

But mostly, because I am not happy with where I am now.

    Take if from me..who has fought weight all her life..I was a fat; child; teenager; young adult; adult..and now a not as heavy senior..still working on getting it together..You are wise to tackle the problem..starting today. I didn't have a good self image of myself and made some horrid choices along the way because of it. Body size does affect not only our physical but our mental out look ..Your goals and reasoning sound good.. Spark will help in so many ways..Keep motivated !!
