My "Why"

Friday, September 13, 2013

My reasons motivating my weight loss are simple and powerful: I want to be healthy and strong, both for myself and to be here for my children. They need me to be strong and healthy for the long-term. I need to be healthy and I also want to avoid diabetes--I have a strong family history of the disease, and I recently had an abnormal fasting blood glucose level. It wasn't terribly high, but it was into prediabetes territory.

    I did it for the same reasons - you can do it if you set your mind on your goal and don't give up!
