Why?

Sunday, February 02, 2020

I recently read an article that the why of wanting to lose weight is likely more motivating than how much. So Why am I on this journey toward better health? Reality is that I have bad joints (broke hip at 12 and replacements and reconstructions, arthritics through out my body) and I am not going to get total mobility. But with weight loss and exercise I can perhaps decrease the amount and rate of damage. I want to be able to get back into activities that I have left behind - bike riding, camping, chasing after the great nieces and nephews. These things are all realistic and within the realm of possibilities but not if I continue to stay inactive and continue to excuse poor eating habits. I want to be able to spend active times with friends and family. I want to go on a nice vacation, including walking/ hiking to see sights and being able to fit into rides at the amusement park. I do not want to be sitting at home and inactive when I retire two years from now but want to be actively involved in my life.So I guess the why do I need to stay on this journey to better health is that the best way to improve and change my future is by the decisions I make and the actions I take now and every day. Time to celebrate the "small" successes in the journey and stop worrying how far away the destination.
