DEFINING MY WHY
Tuesday, January 05, 2021
I have been on this roller coaster of a weight lost journey for a number of years, I have a great streak and then fall back into my bad habits. So now at 60 I need to reach my destination if I am ever going to live a happy and fulfilling life. I have read so many articles on how to and why losing weight would benefit me. I have even blogged about it here on SparkPeople. So again, I am on a course to find my WHY, ask myself WHY do I want to lose weight? Why is losing weight important to me? Why is this reason for losing weight important to me? Why do I feel strongly about this reason for losing the weight? Well for one reason only and that is I want to live the rest of my life, liking myself, feeling confident in my skin, being able to wear clothes that I like and look good in them, maybe reduce my blood pressure and cholesterol so that I don’t have to take medication any longer, although it runs in the family so I will probably need the medication for a while yet, not being ashamed of having my photos taking with my grandkids. I have always shied away from having my photo taken but a few years ago I met someone who was a selfie maniac, and loved taking photos, I think since spending time with him I have been in more photos in 6 months than I have been in my life, anyway, he taught me how to take a selfie and make it look good, so I have posted my favourite selfie to date. Bear in mind that I don’t even stick my photo on any of my social pages.
So my goal for this New Year of 2021 is to follow my plan, exercise regularly and insert some strength training in there. Concentrate on ME that is the only way I am going to get a NEW ME.
