I have been slacking a little on keeping up with my Slim By Summer Posts but Im back in the game this week! I absolutely love this awesome group of women linking up and being a part of Raising Reagans Slim By Summer! Its not just a link up its a total support system and I love it!
PS Lanaya! holy cow girl I can not even begin to tell you how much you mean to me! I dont even know you outside of the blogging world but you are such a motivator and an inspiration! This was such a brilliant idea I love that you ran with it and what you have grown it into!
This weeks theme is
Wow what a crazy loaded question! I could probably real out a list of the top 100 just off the tip of my brain! But here are the top 3 motivators for me!
Health is at the forefront of my list mainly because its do or die time in the sense of when I eat right and exercise I feel good when I eat crap and lounge around I am sick, literally!
2. Family! I need to do this for my Family! This plays right in to Health but it is what it is! If I'm super fat then I cant do the things to the best of my ability! I cant run and play as long and as hard! If Im fat and eating crap I am sick and tired, literally and end up having to spend the eve in bed or worse.. a week or 2 in the hospital! I want to be a great example to my kids of what is right and not for them to think its ok to just bury their emotions in a sea of food and become obese!
Im doing this for my husband! I know he loves me the way I am however I want to be about to let him pick me up with out fears of him breaking his back! I want him to be able to swoop me off my feet and carry me to bed when I fall asleep on the couch! I want not feel limited in the things I can do because of how much I weigh!
3. Me! I know me should be first but its not! I am doing this for me! I want to be able to go into a store and buy what I want with out rummaging to find out what fits! I want to go to a movie with out feeling my hips touch the sides of the chairs! I want to go to an amusement park with out fears that the seat belt might not buckle!
I want to take pics and be happy with what I see and not disgusted!
OH Wait 1 more! ha
4. Friends! I am doing this for my friends! I want others who are dealing with what I am dealing with now to see me do it and realize they can do it too!!!! I want to be able to have a story to tell and be a motivation to others!
