For me it's my health. I am diabetic and I have to lose the weight. I also have young kids and I want to be around for them. It was also a good stiff kick in the rear end from my best friend. I hated the way she talked to me about it but it was what I needed to hear.
Let's make it a healthy day!

It's been a time-to-pay-the-fiddler kind of thing for me. Doc told me I was pre-diabetic and that really scared me. I knew I had to stop my destructive bingeing habits and laxative abuse or it was going to kill me. I have been off laxatives now for 9 months and I have only binged 3 times in that time. Unfortunately, yesterday was one of them.
In His Strength and Grace,

Speak pleasantly to yourself and others.

The most motivating thing has been a real good look in the mirror.
