More Reasons

Thanks for yesterday.  That last little bit of information just bubbled up.  I don’t know about you, but sometimes I will think that I’ve gotten passed something only to discover, randomly, that I really haven’t.  But whatever deep-seated reasons I might have for setting my feet on this path, I have others that are a little less hidden.

I have a preschooler.  I want to be able to keep up with her as she gets older.   I want to set a good example for her.  I want her to know her mom is fit and takes care of herself.

But she isn’t the only reason I’m doing this.  I am also a reason to do this.  The average American woman lives to be 80.6 years old.  At 34, I’m not quite at my midpoint, but I am approaching it.  And I’m telling you, I have no desire to spend the last half of my life struggling with the same issue that has all but defined the first half.  I know that maintenance of weight loss can be just as difficult as the weight loss itself.   But it is a different challenge.  I look forward to it.
