Reasons for weight loss
Sunday, November 04, 2012
Sometimes we look at weight loss as losing to look better in our clothes, or losing for a special occasion. My reasons for wanting to lose are for health. My father was a few weeks shy of 99 when he died. His dad was 92. My mom is still living and active at 85. I want to be healthy and able to remain active for the rest of the time I have. I am now 67 and know that if I intend to be healthy for my later years, I must start now and continue for the rest of my life. I want to be around to enjoy my five grandchildren, to be able to go places and do things with them. High blood pressure runs in my mom's family, and I am now on medication. I am hoping to bring that more in control by adding healthier eating and exercise.
