It feels like I've been going uphill for a while without getting anywhere. I always say that desperation breeds creativity. I was doing WW and going on and off of it. In the beginning I was successful but after a while, it just didn't feel right. There was nothing bad about it, I just couldn't stay motivated with my eye on the goal.
I've gotten to the point with my weight and my health that it's affecting my ability to do things with my family and I don't want to settle. I'm sure everyone here has heard this story a million times. I have a lot that I want to still do in my life and I'm only 53. I look around at other women my age at the grocery store etc. and I see many of them struggling too. I've come back from this kind of situation before but I was much younger. The mindset has to change. I can do this.
My motivation in getting healthier isn't just for me. I want to help other women in the same situation. We have so much to offer the world and it seems that after 40 we start to disappear. I want to change that mentality and revive women to have purpose, do something for themselves instead of always serving others, and to motivate them to do great things after 50. It's a great time in our lives. We shouldn't miss it.
