What motivates me to make changes in my life is seeing what my family that has passed went through. It's not an easy journey, but thinking of them helps me to get back on track or try to stay on track. I also am tired of feeling run down and in pain myself. I want to loose the fat and be in better shape. emoticon emoticon

Being healthy and honoring God

Lois

South Carolina Eastern Standard

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
(Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV)

I had been exercising and eating healthy, and then April 12 I broke my leg. Since I have recovered I've lost 6 lbs due to lack of appetite and my intake of food shrinking. It jarred my weight loss for which I am thankful.

Looking in the mirror and seeing what I have become. My knees and hips hurt, I'm carrying around 20# of useless fat.
Yesterday I told myself that I will do better and with a little bit of self control I will.

What motivates me is simply living a happier life. I have given up sugar, alcohol, and gluten which all depress me. Without them I'm much happier and have far more motivation. I'm still working on the gluten but I've been off alcohol 3 yrs 7mos (wasn't addicted, just didn't like the way it made me feel) and I've been off sugar 3 years. I'm sure I'll be successful with the gluten too :).
