A picture may be worth a thousand words, but it still doesn't explain everything. I mean, it's complicated.
Day #3 is supposed to be "A picture of your inspiration for weight loss."
At first, I thought this is the one to post:
In some ways, my inspiration is born from hoping to avoid the complications of some major health issues - hypertension and diabetes being the two biggies in my case - which you might say boils down to fear. I'm afraid of courting disaster by not trying to do everything I can to get healthier.
In my SparkPage introduction I've written "I have a very worthwhile goal - I want to be healthy the rest of my life."
I could say I wish I'd started thinking about it and working at it when I was younger, but regardless, better late than never applies here as much as it does anyplace.
So in an effort to see the glass as half-full, I thought this is the better picture to illustrate my inspiration to lose weight:
As I said in another of my blogs, I'm not perfect. I don't always make the wise choice, the right choice. But my awareness level has certainly been raised, and I make the right choices a lot more often than I used to.
So rather than fleeing from bad health out of fear, I'd prefer to think I'm running toward good health because I want to. My inspiration for eating right, exercising, and looking after myself is the desire to live a healthy life.
So that's it from me. You wouldn't believe how long I had to struggle to put that together. Sometimes the words come easily, and sometimes they don't, lol...
Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!
