Think about why you started....I have found that I need to think of this every day because it's what spurs me on to continue down this journey that I'm on. I know that my very own personal story and reason for starting to get desperate to lose weight is so close to my heart that it's hard to write down and hard to think about because it hurts me at the same time of spurring me into action. Back in February of 2010, my dear sister passed away from complications with diabetes. I realized then that I was headed in the same direction if I didn't start to change right then and there. I was starting to get some of the same symptoms that she passed away from. I loved her with all my heart and always will. It hurts me so to not have her around any more and yet I know that she could've taken better care of herself and it's like her life can teach me how to rise about it all and be a better healthier person because of this sorrow. This happening can either make or break me. Well, I choose that it will make me because I can already feel myself changing into a healthier, more vibrant human being with being more alive to all and everyone around me. So with every day, I will think about why I started and this will form me to be the best that I can be.
