My reasons why....

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

I want to keep reminding myself of why I am on this journey, so am taking this list from my Spark Page and putting it into a blog:

I need to remind myself why I am on this journey and here are a few that are seasonally appropriate:

I want to enjoy spring and summer and not be so focused on how hot I am and how I can't seem to get cool and do not want to bare skin.

I want to enjoy warmer weather the way I used to as a kid, with that freedom of bike riding and playing in the sunshine.

I want to be comfortable in shorts and enjoy shopping for clothes again. I'm sick to death of wearing the same old boring clothes day in and day out.

I want to be comfortable in a swimming suit. I LOVE swimming, but my weight prevents me from spending much time in the water. I know if I were thinner, I'd be more inclined to bare it and get that suit on - and in the meantime also burn a ton of calories with all of that water play!

I want to be comfortable in my own skin.

It's time.

And the biggest reason why... I'm turning 40 AND getting married this year! How is that for motivation??? Yikes!!

    That is awesome motivation! Being comfortable in our own skin is so important, yet really hard for many of us. You are not only going to be fabulous by 40, but you're going to be a glowing bride! 2013 is gonna be a great year!

    I think that last reason is the best reason. Great motivation!
