My Motivator

Wednesday, January 23, 2019

I was always told I needed to lose weight, not for others, but for myself. And that’s true. But today, Day 1 of this weight journey, is for someone better than me. For 12.5 years, this boy put me first. I thought pulling him from the pound when he was so sick, heart worms and half starved, that I was saving his life; but in reality he saved mine. I lost Phoenix in October of this past year. His physical presence is gone from my empty home, but I will honor him starting today, by taking as good of care of myself as he always did. I will lose these 28 pounds honoring Phoenix and honoring the lady he believed me to be. I will become emotionally strong and physically fit. I will do it for us!

    GMACAMI- I still have one of my original 4 who will be 14 in April-quite old for a husky. She is totally blind and deaf so I am giving all my attention to her. My 15 year old granddaughter lives with me and I just rescued a six year old Aussie 4 her

    You've got this! Sometimes it takes an outside force to give us motivation to start. Sometimes that same force keeps us going. Doing it in memory of someone has had a huge impact for me.
