Why do I want to live healthier?
Monday, January 29, 2018
This blog is in response to a Spark Coach action step for today. What is the real reason I want to lose weight and live a healthier life? My first response is to look and feel better, but there are other reasons as well. I want to be able to have the energy to take care of my dad and my husband. I want to be to take my dog for a long walk to enjoy God's creation. I want to sleep better and move better. I want to not only live a long time, but I want to be able to enjoy that long life. I want to be confident to try new things and meet new people. I want to stay off medication and get off my current medications if it's possible. .
I know it's important to live life now and not wait until I lose the weight. I am trying to do that and Sparkpeople is helping me by providing ways to connect with people and motivating me to keep moving forward. I am trying hard not to use the phrase "when I lose weight I am going to...." instead telling myself to go out and do what I want to now.
Another part of the question is what do I plan to do when I reach my goals. I don't know except to set new goals and keep moving forward.
So there is not just one reason I want to live healthier there are many.
