Summer 5% Challenge Assignment # 3 Motivation
Friday, July 08, 2011
My motivation for wanting to lose weight has more to do with my health as I get older than anything else. My reasons for wanting to lose weight are as follows; * I want to be independent for the rest of my life. * Maintaining my mobility as I get older * Avoiding having to get hip or knee replacements as I age * Avoid getting osteoarthritis later in life * A healthy weight means less money spent on Doctor's appointments and medicine as I age. * I want to feel comfortable and look okay in my clothes. * I do not want to be depressed because of weight related issues. * Be the best I can be for my age * I want to get over the idea that because I am getting older it is okay to just give in to it and let my weight get out of control. *I want to make a lifestyle change .* I want to feel good about doing all that I can do to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
