My big why

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Over 3 years ago, a doctor told me I had 100 pounds to lose and then what did I do, I ate and ate.

Since March 2013 I've been slowly decreasing my weight but now with my 25th class reunion coming up in summer 2014 - I'm choosing that to be my motivation to ramp up the weight loss and get some exercising in (oh how I hate that word exercise).
I'm slowly discovering the reason why I am on a plateau: a deficiency of what you need & an overindulgence of what you don't need + lack of movement = I ain't losing weight!! I've used spark people in the past but not to the extent I have been since December 2013. I'm attempting to add in everything I eat and how I move. I need to get healthy for me and me alone. Yes, I'm sure my husband, parents, brother, friends and family want that too but my main motivation is me - I'm sick and tired of not being able to do the stuff I want to do because I get out of breath all too often. Yes my weight is just a number however I just don't like that number!

    Glad you're back and doing it for YOU!

that is great! personally I have chosen to find every reason possible to walk. Getting off sooner from a bus, walking instead of taking the bus in some cases.... doing my best to make it to 10000 steps a day and 15km walked outside per week.
