    My emotional connection is Happiness. I want to LIVE not just exist. I want to live fearlessly and accomplish my goals. Hiking, biking, canoeing, traveling... I need to be in good physical shape to live the life I want.

Thank you for asking. I enjoyed reading the responses!

    I think mine would be I want to be in control of my emotions not let them control me and excersise helps with that. I also see my mom's health in a bad state and do not want to repeat. Plus I want to get in shape and be strong enough to help my mom.

    my emotional connection and goal is to feel better and age with grace, not aging with fat and frumpiness as i was doing before spark people.
i want to enjoy the last 40-50 years of my life and if i do not work at my health, it will not happen. so i will continue my spark ... eating wisely and exercising to feel better physically, to maintain my health and strength, to enjoy life

    My goal is to reverse as much as possible, the damage that I sustained from taking L -Tryptophan in 1989 and developing EMS (Eosinophilia-Myalgia syndrome).

    My goal is to be healthier not just physically but also mentally, emotionally, spiritually. The past few years have been very dark for me. My emotional connection is knowing that being more loving, kind and compassionate to myself first is the healthy thing to do for all of me emoticon

    When the Dr told me I wouldn't last 10 more years in the state of health I was in that pretty much lit the fire. He did follow that up with telling me what I could do to change that. Honestly a whole flood of thoughts came in my head all at once. My kids graduating high school, college, weddings, future grandkids and empty nester time with my husband. I have so much more to do in this life and to the best of my ability I don't want my health or death stopping me. Thanks for this blog, you are the best!

    ...I don't know, Cheryl-Anne. I think it has something to do with wanting to have more control over my trajectory... wanting to reassert myself - the person I really am - and regain control over my own actions rather than letting bad habits reign.

    Emotional connection? I don't want to die before 50. Emotional connection? I want to enjoy the time I have and be active. Emotional connection? I want to be in control of my emotions.

    Hi I think my emotional connection is that I REALLY want to look good a but that does not really make sallow does it?

I also want to be fit in my 50's ( & now) I see my mom is really ill and I wish I can help her transform her life. I want to be able to do a lot of stuff even when I am in my 70's. (LOL if am alive)

    My emotional connection is that I lost both my parents in the last 5 years to cancer. I want to remove obesity as a possible path to following in their footsteps. It was very emotional to watch them slowly fade.
