Why I want to lose weight

Thursday, May 03, 2012

Isn't it strange that a work out that seemed relatively easy one day can kick your butt the next? Sometimes when you think your getting stronger your body needs to remind you to slow down, I guess. Work was easier than I expected, even though the fresh salsa with chips was sitting too close for comfort. I'm proud to not have strayed from my planned meals. I keep reminding myself of why I want this and feel like I should write it down in order to keep on track. So here it goes :
1) To be able to buy clothes that I think are stylish and not just what fits
2)To feel more attractive
3)To increase my confidence in meeting new people and not worry that they will judge me as lazy because I'm fat
4)To not wonder if people are thinking "what is he doing with her?" when out with my husband
6) To not end up with diabetes, heart disease, and other diseases related to obesity
7) To increase my self worth knowing I can accomplish a goal and I do deserve the best
8) To be able to run for pleasure instead of fighting for breath and plodding along
9)To be able to go on rides at the amusement park with my son
10) (silly I know) But if there is an apocalypse and zombies are involved I will need to be able to outrun them, right?

    I'm very proud of you. You have started on your journey of change. That is awesome!!
    It starts with the first step, you will start to feel stronger, more determined to reach your goals. I know that you can do it. I would suggest that you keep a list of your reasons why you want to lose weight with you, so that if and when you are faced with a
    temptation, you remember what is at stake.
