Why I want to lose weight.

Saturday, April 14, 2012

This is a list that I plan to add to as the days and weeks go on as to why I want to lose weight. This is going to be one of my motivating tools as well as a reminder. Before I eat, I must read these reasons so that I can stick with the healthy eating!

1. I want to look in the mirror and have the person on the inside shine through on the outside.

2. I want to be healthy.

3. I want more energy.

4. I want to run a marathon.

5. I want to travel.

6. I want to look good for my husband.

7. I want to have children.

8. I want to honor God with my health.

9. I want my thighs to stop rubbing against each other.

10. I want to look good in a bikini.

11. I want to be able to fit into a roller coaster seat.

12. Climb stairs without getting wore out.

13. Lower my blood pressure.

14. I want to be able to close my legs all of the way.

15. I want to be able to bend my legs at the knees.

16. To be able to sleep on my side comfortably.

17. To lose the stretch marks.

18. So that I can see my cheekbones.

19. To get off of my meds.

20. To overcome my fear of heights.

21. To see my eyelids.

22. To have easier monthly cycles.

    emoticon Just a suggestion...why not make your #5 goal your number 1 goal. Then move the number one to the second position. Lastly, move the #10 goal to the third position. It is not selfish at all to put yourself first and the visual image, emotional image, and spiritual image of yourself a priority. You will find that your health is equally important and by taking care of yourself in a healthy way, you will find yourself having more energy. All the other items on the list will fall right into place with time. emoticon Blessings on a successful journey.

    Very motivational list.
    Do you have any short term goals that can help you move towards these bigger goals?
    Sometimes stringing together a lot of little victories can help bring the bigger ones closer.

    Best of luck and may God bless you on this journey.
