With all this new knowledge and how disgusted I feel about where I am right now. I am still finding it very hard to ignite that fire for me to start taking the steps that I need to be successful in this journey of weight loss. I am not on mission to be a size 0, but I am a firm believer of self/body acceptance. I am not there yet. Don't get me wrong, I'm still very confident in myself and I love me but let just say that it's time to make some new renovations! :-)
Here's a list of what is motivating me to lose weight.
- My son, Jeremiah. My son was born 16 weeks early and weighed 1.7oz. He was in the hospital for nearly 4 months He fought for his life so that he can bring joy to mine. I have this amazing miracle child that I care and adore more than ANYTHING. This kid, at 14mths old, is probably the strongest person I know. As a parent I need to be there for him. I need to run, hop, and skip for him. I want to be able to go to the ends of the earth with him. I love this kid!
- My health. Simple as that! I want to be healthy. Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired!
- My relationships. (This is for the hubby)
- Self-gratification.Girl gotta look good! (LOL) But really being able to look like how I feel.
