There will always be a reason to quit!
Friday, October 29, 2010
I have been overweight my whole life and had several reason of why I was "fat" (i.e. my whole family on my dad side is overweight so it's in my genes, it don't matter what eat I will gain weight , i love my favorite food and snacks to much)! I was diagnosed with a skin disease in September of 2003 called scleroderma and a couple other things that affect my circulation (medical reason of not exercising). This disease really limited my ability to exercise (not that I wasn't over weight b4 I got diagnosed) and I had to move to a warmer climate to get better. I moved to AZ and got better was working out and getting my eating habits in order then I lost my oldest daughter in October 2008 and went down hill from there (now I have a emotional reason), I moved back to IA and got sick again (another reason not to change my lifestyle).I will have to cook to separate meals one for my family and one for me (financial reason) Get the picture? There will always be A reason to quit or not start but look at the reasons we have to do it! You feel better health wise and appearance wise, your comfortable in your body, and your not afraid of the "big monster" the scale. Life is what you make it and I'm tired of making it into something I can eat or a mountain I can't climb! I'm making my life into my own personal obstacle course where I run and jump over the reason's that I let keep me down all my life (weight and excuses). Today is a new day for me and I'm back in AZ where I'm healthy (my disease wise and off all my meds). I'm refusing to let my anything stop me from reaching my goal!
