FEF Week 6 Challenge
Friday, May 06, 2011
There were several things that made me want to lose weight and be healthier.
1) I've watched diabetes wreak havoc on my grandmother, mother, and father. Diabetes basically killed my grandmother and she was blind when she died. My father is almost blind. The doctor told me I was pre-diabetic. I don't want to end up like them so I realized I needed to do something now about it.
2) I wanted to have my confidence and self-esteem back. I am not a woman who looks well overweight - you know, like the models for Lane Bryant or the pretty fat women they use on TV. I stopped taking pictures of myself because I realized I had almost become androgynous and I hated the fact that people could mistake me for a guy. I want to feel sexy and pretty and feminine again.
3) There are a lot of secret goals I have in my life. These are goals that aren't immediately accessible. When these goals are reachable, I want to be able to be happy, healthy, and beautiful. I don't want to have weight related health issues or be tired all the time.
