2013 Why I Want To Lose The Weight
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
2013 is the year I am going to lose this weight and keep it off for good! I have a 4 year old grandson whom I am convinced will be scared for life if I am not around to spend time with him. I know this sounds a little narcissistic, but if this is what it takes to get me moving then this is what it takes.
Yes, I want to get healthy and look better and feel better, but mainly I want to be active so I can keep up with him. He has a motorized ATV and one day I was trying to walk behind him as we went around the block. Well, I was finding it harder and harder to keep up (I didn't realize that he had kicked it into high gear) when he stopped turned around and said "Run Grandma." Needless to say Grandma couldn't run.
We are going to Disney World in November and I know that I have to get this weight off first. It was tiring enough 24 years ago when I was younger and over 100 pounds lighter. There will also be water parks and the only reason I have been in a swimsuit in the last 4 years is because I wanted to make sure my grandson could swim and that meant doing "Grandma and Me" (instead of Mommy and Me) classes. I would not have gone out in public looking like that for anyone but him.
To be fair I am doing this for myself, but my grandson is my inspiration. My husband has been great about not making me feel bad about all this weight that I have gained since we got married, but he works out all the time and I know he would love to have a thinner wife who is able to go places and do things that I either can't or won't do right now.
At the end of 2013 I hope to be able to look back on this and see that I have accomplished my goals and am in the position of learning to maintain everything that I have worked so hard to accomplish.
