When I got that first phone call (intake interview/health assessment) from Karen, one of the questions she asked me was, “What are your reasons for wanting to lose weight?”
Nobody had ever asked me that before! I knew some of the reasons, but I had to take a minute to think about it.
We’ve all made attempts to lose weight, for various reasons. Some of us have kept it off (kudos to you all!) and some of us have “relapsed” back into old habits, and, therefore, gained the weight back.
When I had a minute to think, I told Karen a few of my reasons for wanting to lose weight:
Back issues, and trouble walking and standing for long periods.
To be able to walk my daughter down the aisle on her wedding day, when that day comes.
To be more energetic with my grand kids. Let’s face it: kids have A LOT of energy! They don’t understand why papa got tired after 15 minutes of playing outside!
I wanted to look good, feel good, and have confidence in myself. I’m a true believer in looking good gives one confidence!
To be a healthier, happier me!
Through Karen and the weekly Zoom webinars, I have been able to stay on track. Sure, being on the plan isn’t going to eliminate all of my back pain; but, the fact that I can RUN up to four miles, and have no discomfort in my knees and back is ultimately a blessing! I can stand for longer periods of time. Cooking our lean and green meals (yes, I don’t have to cook two separate meals everyday!) isn’t a chore to stand over the stove and prepare our healthy meals.
What would be your reasons to lose weight?
