Yes, that is a scary thought. We have to work twice as hard as our parents, with the new age of technology and consumption of processed foods that are bad for our health. But it is good we can have a place to go online for support and ideas on how to improve our health and make positive changes for ourselves and our families.

Yes, unfortunately my family history with diseases aren't lucky or blessed. We are blessed to be here and have what health we do have. However, diabetes is huge in my family, as is being obese. I believe that diabetes is reversible when you are diagnosed at a heavier weight (or obese) and its truly something I want to avoid if possible. As with all the other issues. My mother's friend actually lost her leg bc she is diabetic, she started getting the sores and they turned into an infection and they had to remove her leg bc of it. Scares me so much.
But, with help and continued education with reading and asking questions, my children will avoid any such things and won't have to deal with these issues bc they will know what a healthy life looks like and will be able to turn our future generation around. Its sad to think when you read about statistics they say that our children won't out live us (as parents). That should be enough to scare everyone, I guess it's not always. But we do what we can and learn what we can and little steps will always lead to greater things. :)

my motivation is several things...my health (a little vanity), my family especially children, most importantly though, I am afraid of diabetes and other diseases that go along with being overweight.

Throughout my life my parents have inspired me to exceed at everything I do, be it a minute house chore or be it my graduate classes. I have always had high standards for myself and others. My children inspire me to become a person of high morals because I am their role model whether or not that was my choice.

the motivation , most of my life i am overweight , my husband never complain wa alhamdollah,
i tried several diet on and off and not seriously, til i became obese, i do not care, even so i am active in my community , my family and my life.
last summer we had omrah me and my husband , during that trip many ppl give me advice to make my clothe loose (it is loose but bec. i am fat it does not look that)
I see around me , many ppl eat healthy, i started mine in Dec. 2010, i stopped eating all sweet ( candy cake and so on) then accidentally i found SP web site and alhamdulleah it is work especially after i track my food and see some food have high calories

welcome fitumm,inshallah you will be a fit mother after being on this site a while.

love-art thanks for that watch your thouights quote have heard it before but forgotten it.sorry for taking so long to reply but was having computer issues,lol.

my motivation at the moment is having access to spark again after so long of being away from it i now can磘 get enough.lol

karen (gwyneth the celt for the pink vikings)

if at first you don创t succeed,try try again.

heaviest weight-330lbs
start weight sp-270.4lbs
goal weight-155lbs

if i was worth my weight in gold i would be a millionair.my riches are measured by other standards and are worth far more than any gold.

we cant become what we need by remaining what we are.

Fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Love mo

copy & pasted from my blog:

the other day i heard a quote from the psychologist and islamic scholar yasir fazaga.
it was so vivid that it has stuck in my mind and i keep repeating it each day to remind myself.
here it is:

"Watch your thoughts, they become your words. Watch your words, they become your actions. Watch your actions, they become your habit."

i can relate to this quote in many ways, but for weight loss, i think it will help me, if i stop thinking about indulging in sweets any chance i get. i have fallen off the wagon of good eating for the last few weeks, and can't seem to climb back on. remembering this quote reminds me to stop thinking about cheating myself and get back on track.

for me, i want to fix my heart. i want to avoid the maladies that my mom/aunts/grandmother have.
i also want my husband to love me the way he used to. (maybe that won't happen, and i really can't expect anything from anyone anyways, but it would be nice. especially the way he used to look at me.)
also, it would be nice to finally look like the YOUNGER sister. people always think I'm the older one, it's not like we're close in age, there is actually a 7/8 year difference between us!

actually, she's my cousin, and we're close. last we were together, she was on vacation, and probably "in" extreme vacation mode. her attitude was like that for 20 years. her husband is a doctor, they live comfortably, and they've always been madly in love. for her it wasn't stress. she was just a glutton, for the sake of gluttonny. she would have to do things in extremes. we would tell her to take it easy, but she wouldn't care. i just can't believe how she did a 180. we honestly would get sick just watching her. seriously. maybe this is another one of her extremes! well, alhamdulilah, i was over joyed and teary eyed when i saw her latest photo.

that would inspire me as well.i weighed over 300+ and it wasn磘 because i hated myself.it was because of the stress i was in and still am sometimes with three childrens with special needs.the time when they were banging oin their lifes i would feel so helpless,have little sleep and would eat for comfort and the need i had to keep up my strength and give energy.there are loads of reasons for putting on weight it is onnly a very few who eat out iogf hate for them selfs.it could be low self worth,bad education,or like me stress and a feeling of hopefulness.some even believe it is unavoidable and thing it is there genes as the rest of their family is the same not actually asociating with the same bad eating habits of the whole family.also people use it as a reward to help them feel better ar to fill the place of something that they feel is missing in their life.i can honestly say i never hated myself and still don磘 even though i still have over 60lbs to loose.by the way my ticker should read.start weight 330lbs and goal weight 155lbs i am now on 215.5lbs.for some reason it say kilogramms instead of lbs and i don磘 know how to change it,lol.

if at first you don创t succeed,try try again.

heaviest weight-330lbs
start weight sp-270.4lbs
goal weight-155lbs

if i was worth my weight in gold i would be a millionair.my riches are measured by other standards and are worth far more than any gold.

we cant become what we need by remaining what we are.

i just saw pics of someone i haven't seen in a long time. last i saw her, she was 300+ pounds. now, she's less than 1/2 that. i don't know how she did it, she says, healthy eating. i am sooo happy for her. i know how she used to eat, my GOD. i used to think that she really hated herself the way she ate. now, mA, wow, i still can't believe it.

two years ago we ran a 10k together. it was nice running with him.

Ever-Hopeful ~ What a great motivator!

What is motivating me to get back on track now is that I just learned a few days ago that my DH will be getting transfered to the States this year inshaAllah. (It all depends on Homeland Security, doesn't it? God willing, he will be approved for his visa.) He is so slender and fit and I feel like a whale next to him. I want to be as close to a healthy weight as possible when he gets here.

Peace and Blessings!

Mel

what motivated me recently was when i realized that it is as if i am carrying my 8 year old around everywhere i go. my poor muscles, my poor bones. i love my body way too much to carry all this extra weight.
