Remember why....

Today's post is going to focus on remembering why I am losing this weight...or attempting too....It was an afternoon in July 2008, when I had just gotten home from shopping at Walmart and Harmons, I bought a lot of junk food, and it exhausted me just bringing in all the groceries. Then I went to put on my 'lounge' pants and split the seam on the thighs...that was my defining moment, the moment that made me say, enough is enough, and the moment that changed my life. I decided then and there that I HAD to do something about it. Granted my journey so far this year hasn't been all that it should/could be, but I am focusing on the future, not the past, I am doing pretty good this week, losing weight well and exercising each day. I am losing this weight for better health, for a chance at conceiving (hopefully...if that's in the cards for my hubby and I and God's will). Also so that slight exercise won't wind me and make me exhausted, stiff and sore....such as walking up the street to pick up the mail.

It is a good idea to remember the motivations along the journey. At the beginning I made and put posters up all around my house as a reminder. I took them down when visitors came and now I am thinking I should put them up again!

Always a good idea to remember where you are coming from as that helps us to foscus on our future because we do not want to go back... You are doing awesome! Keep up the great work!

I started a poster during the SHBS challenge and never finished it... I need to do it again! Or maybe even just small posters to put on my refrigerator as a reminder of my goals!
