To enjoy our travels and go on walk around, hikes and not feel out of it. Plus, if I can reduce some medications...Huzzah!

I have goals that involve a decent level of fitness and I learned the hard way on my last trekking trip that 40 extra pounds is NOT fun to haul up and over mountains. I don’t want to give up on my hiking dreams, especially since I’m still in my 30’s and otherwise healthy!

Today it was my oldest boy who's 10. He hugged when I was leaving for work and asked if I had a baby in my belly.

Nope.

That was the spark I need to get back on the wagon.

My health, primarily. I have a family history of renal failure, arthritis, heart diseases, diabetes, high Blood pressure. The works :|
I lost my mother when I was 18 to a plethora of diseases and not a day goes by that I don't miss her. I'm scared of doing that to my family, most of all my partner. I want to live a long, healthy life.

And of course, there is a more superficial reason. I was 127 lbs around 8 years back and I loved the skin I was in! Shopping for clothes was a breeze, I used to workout for fun (seems like such a bizarre concept now :P), I used to be brimming with confidence, and I used to glow! I want to be in the same place again.

When if feel like I am just existing.....

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

Another good reducing exercise consists in placing both hands against the table edge and pushing back.

My motivation is to be as healthy as possible. I have many obesity-related comorbidities that I know are shortening my life by about 15 years. The extra time earned back by losing excess weight and getting fit should turn out to be quality time; with full mobility and ability to keep up with my grandchildren; without pain and without most of it being spent in doctors' offices.

There's an old saying: "If wishes were horses, we'd all take a ride". The motivation to lose weight is like a horse, I think. Wish it and then just climb into the saddle and hang on tight, give that horse some encouragement and direct it forward, like you know what you're doing. A slow trot is just fine. The horse can go farther that way and this horse must go a long, long way. We'll get there!

All things are possible.

I'm 55 and as I age, I'm witnessing a deterioration in my strength, stamina, etc. I've become sedentary now that my kids are grown, and gained quite a lot of weight. So I look to the future, and I see that I cannot continue as I am and manage even self-care by a later age. I'm going to end up in a nursing home, or living with my children, if anything should happen to my husband.

I don't want that! I want to be independent, healthy, active, strong! I've seen women in their 70s with more strength than I have at 55, so it can be done! I have hope that I can do better. I'm so grateful to have SP to help me along the journey to wellness.
