Why lose weight?
Does it matter why you want to lose weight?
Is it wrong if I lose weight only to outshine my ex husband’s younger wife? Is it wrong if I stick to my diet every day, exercise extra, and just all around become the perfect fat burning machine as well as become the Diet Master to my husband and our family just so that we all look better than them? Really, is it so wrong?
Some would say that you have to lose weight for the right reasons. We all know that the right reason is supposed to be for better health and that looking better is just a side effect. Well, to that I say “Bah Humbug!” The truth is, I hardly care about my health most of the time. I’m lucky, I am pretty healthy no matter my weight, at least I am today.
I figure it doesn’t really matter from where the motivation comes. If you get it from inside yourself, or if you get it from wanting to look better than someone else; I say, Go For It! Whatever it takes to get you there as long as you remember that getting there is the easy part.
As someone who has lost and gained hundreds of pounds over the years I can attest to the fact of that last sentence. It’s easy to do anything temporarily. It’s really hard to do something permanently. Honestly, I hope this time is my last time, but right now I don’t care.
At my daughter’s graduation this May, I will look great!
