why do I want to do this?

Monday, June 10, 2013

today sparkcoach encouraged me to write about why I want to do this.

I think of this first rather vainly and selfishly........just wanting to look better, but for whom? DH loves me regardless as do family and friends, co-workers, etc. I'm already loved way more than I deserve, so love is not a motivating factor and neither is approval.

So, why? Honestly. There has to be a deeper reason to be here. I've always said it was to get my numbers right-cholesterol, BS, etc. But, there has to be more.

What I think I truly want is to be in control of myself. To choose NOT to eat that cookie or chip and be, not only okay with it, but feel good about it.

I want to be so motivated that I'm beyond junking up my body with food industry created crack.

Much to ponder. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I would say that wanting to live a healthier lifestyle (deciding what you do and don't eat) is a great goal. When your insides are healthy (because of better eating choices) that reflects on your outsides.

    Taking control of your own body and mind is a great ultimate goal.
