SGCC Activity 1: Why do I want to be fit and healthy?

Saturday, July 01, 2017

I am going to be honest here. I have chosen to do the Small Goals Commitment Challenge myself. I have decided to be healthy for many reasons. One of the being as a Christian that I know I am not glorifying God with abusing the body He gave me. I want to glorify God by losing the weight and bringing Him honor through it. A lot of people won't understand this but I myself do. For me it is an obligation to do this out of love for my Creator. The second reason I want to be healthy is to get off some if not all of my medications. I know there are a lot of you out there who can sympathize with this one since you have health issues of your own to deal with. My list continually grows when I go to the doctor's office. I am longing to be healthy and fit. My third reason is that I want to be able to move around pain free or as close to it as possible as I can. I have a lot of pain issues that I deal with and I continually go to a pain specialist and have treatments for Osteoarthritis, Carpal Tunnel and Plantar Fasciitis. I know when I lose the weight some of these would get better with weight loss and they would last longer as well because my body wouldn't wear out as easy either. My fourth reason is I want to be able to take care of my new dog, Betty who is only 8 years for as long as she is alive. I can't do that in my current condition. So something needs to change. I need to be honest with my eating and also learn when I am eating for the wrong reasons.

    Those are all excellent reasons. I also want to glorify the Lord with healthy eating habits. I don't always do that. I want to though, something I am continually working on. Thank You for grace and love Father. Bless us with Your strength to make healthy life-affirming choices. In Jesus' name. Amen.

    Being a christian also, I completely understand where you are coming from when you said you wanted to do it for the love of our Creator. That was beautiful! Those are all good reasons. You should post them somewhere where you can see them every day, that way each time you may need the motivation you can look at your list! Wishing you the best with your challenge!
