FMM: The Driving Force
What is the driving force behind your weight-loss?
I have vain reasons like I would like to be able to go in to any store and buy something on a whim. I don’t want to have to search out the plus size store or section. I want to wear a dress and not feel my legs constantly rub together. I don’t want to search out weight limits for activities I might like to do.
However, the driving force behind my weight loss desires has to do with my children. I want to lose weight and get healthy for myself, but more for them. As I have said in my blog, I want to show them a good example. I want them to grow up at a healthy weight, be active and make good choices. I don’t want them to grow up overweight and out of shape like I was. I was a more normal weight in elementary school when I was walking or riding my bike to school and playing with the kids in the neighborhood. Once my family moved to a more country location I no longer did those things. I became very inactive. I don’t want it to be like that for my kids. I want to take them on hikes, go on walks, play ball with them, etc. In order to do those things I need to first get myself active and healthy so I can keep up with them.
