To be healthy, to feel better about myself, to save money, to be unstoppable, to be able to comfortably wear my clothes/scrubs, to not have to shop under plus size signs, to motivate others to be healthy, to be happier, more energetic...
I will be 49 next month (yikes!) and I see others my age who are beginning to have health problems (diabetes, cardiac issues, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, joint problems) and I don't want to go there! I must say that I have never felt better and actually forget my age until something reminds me. Funny story, I just went for my annual physical (hadn't seen my doc since the last one which is a very very good thing) and the young girl doing the BP said she forgot something - a hearing test - which "should be done annually when you reach your age". I had to laugh (passed it with flying colors) because on the inside I felt as young as she looked and had truly forgotton I am approaching 50. Too funny!
for myself. no one else but ME. i wanna look good and feel even better. and when the time comes for me to have kids i want to be able to run and play with them not be out of breath after 5 minutes of playing.
The thought of being on medications at age 32 makes me feel sick and old. I know that I don't have to live that life if I live healthy. I'm running out of time and chances though and if I don't turn things around this next year, I could be on the path of suffering.
