How will my life change when I reach my weight goal
Monday, January 28, 2013
My son will become a priest in June (We're are Catholic). That's a very big event for him and for me. I want to have reached my final weight goal, which is 110, and look very good. This Saturday, there will be also a big event for us as it will be my son's deacon ordination. I am sad not to be at my best, however, I promise myself that it will be different in June.
When I reach my weight goal, I will be less at risk for cardiovascular desease, diabete and cancer (specially breast cancer). My waist is 40" at the moment, which is dangerous for the diseases I just mentioned. I have to be very careful as my father died of his first stroke at 59 (I am 58) and my mother, had a quadruple bypass at 76 (she is now 80). My mother also suffers from diabete and hypertension. My brother suffers also from hypertension, as are an uncle and an aunt.
I will feel much more confident, not only because I will look better, but because in order to lose weight and tone, I have to be disciplined and persevering.
When I reach my weight goal, I will not only be slimmer, but stronger. And not only physically. I do believe Jillian Michaels' words :
"When you're strong physically, you're strong in every factor of your life"
