Why do I want to lose weight?

Friday, January 25, 2013

This was the question spark coach posed to me to blog about today. After thinking about it there is no one reason. Yes i want to feel better, have more energy, be healthier. I really would like to be able to dance again. I used to take ball room dance for many years and it was something I really loved, and it was something that kept me very motivated to keep my weight somewhat in check. When financial difficulties started and raising 4 kids i could no longer afford to do that, and I still cant afford to do it. When I had to give up the dance I think I just gave up on myself.
The other big reason is I want to feel attractive, sexy, etc. I am now 50 yrs. old . and i have felt like a "mom" fo so long. Dont get me wrong, I have nothing against being a mom, But I feel that one aspect of my life took over, and the rest of me got buried somewhere. I know they teach you to feel good about yourself in the body you are in, and embrace your age, its just a number etc. etc. but that is not how I feel. I am tired of being over weight , and blah. Maybe that is being vain, I dont know , but I want to lose the weight to feel sexy!
