It's All For Me

Someone I know said that I was motivated to lose weight so that I looked good for my husband.

Um NO, no I'm not.

I've never tried to lose weight to look better for anyone else. I do it for me. Sure if I look nice and he enjoys the view that's an added bonus but I'm really not spending hours in the gym, running or riding my bike to impress anyone.

I'm doing it because it makes ME feel good.

I like being able to feel good in my own skin.

I like being able to go in a store and try on clothes and they all fit.

I like the way I feel when I accomplish my goals.

I like the accomplishment of being able to lift the next weight when I'm working out.

I like the way I feel when I push myself to run faster.
I like the way I feel when I have a good run.

I do it for me.Pin It

Good for you!!! I agree, your husband being pleased is a bonus, but you have to do it for yourself. =)

I totally agree! If you do it for yourself, it is likely to last too.
I wish I could do it again. But I keep getting bogged down with emotional eating.
More drama in this family an hour or so ago. I'm sitting here at 3.26 in the morning, wishing I could sleep.
