3 Reasons To Keep Trying

Friday, November 01, 2013

I have to keep telling myself why I should keep going. Keep trying. Fall down, get up. Don't give up. I have three reasons to keep up what I am doing, and they mainly involve my health. Not what I look like. Not a number on a scale. However, the more overweight I am, the more I am going to be affected by my three problems.

emoticon Osteoarthritis in my hips will get worse and not better. If I lose weight, my hips will feel better and feeling better improves the quality of life in many ways.

emoticon My hormones will be better balanced after I lose some weight.

emoticon The likelihood of becoming insulin resistant due to being obese will be reduced after I lose weight.

So, this blog is a reminder to myself more than a communication to other sparkers, and when I go to my Spark page, I will see this title and it will remind me.

emoticon Have a good day guys!

    Some of the best reasons start with health and keeping off medications or reducing medications. You are well worth the effort it will take!
