Weight loss, now and then......

Now - now that I'm in my 40's the reasons for losing weight are much different than they were when I was in my twenties. Now it's because I take seriously things like heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stroke, cancer and any other "die"seases that potentially could take me from this earth and more importantly from my son. I now realize that I need to do everything in my power to live a healthy lifestyle and actively pursue a long life, I owe that to the son I brought into this world (especially since I'm a late in life mom). He deserves to have an active healthy mom around to raise him into adulthood and to actively enjoy the journey with him.

Then - wow how hot would I look in that top, that bikini, those pants if only I could lose a few pounds.....

......if only life could be that simple again! LOLOL not really, I enjoy where I am at this point of my life. I wouldn't trade being a LIL MOMMY for anything in the world!

(Note: not to diminish why any of you young folk are here trying to lose weight, but trust me as you age, you too will have your own now and thens).

    This post reminds me of my spark page. These are the same reasons I am here at spark, and sticking to my program. It helps to meet all these "same" minded women, tool

    My ds is one of the reasons I FINALLY stuck to a weight loss plan. I was 40 when I had him and I wanted to be around to see Grand kids! LOL! It felt so good today when we went to a pumpkin patch to be able to run around and keep up with him and his little friends!

    Oh I could of written that myself. I have thought the exact same thing. My little one didn't ask that I have him later in life. And I was blessed enough TO have him so he deserves and I owe it to him to be the best mom I can be...the healthiest so I'm here for him and the happiest in myself. It's so not about a cute outfit anymore. :)

    How true that is, your reasons change as to grow and mature. Not only do I want to be here for my daughter, now I have two grandchildren.

    Still it would be nice to look good in that swim suit. (teehehe)
