Motivational Reasons to Lose Weight & Get in Shape

You have to admit you have thought about it. I mean what seriously could be better than to show up at your 20th year high school reunion and really stick it to the jerk who dumped you all those years ago?  Okay, maybe not, but I do think there are events in our lives which provide us with some serious motivation to lose weight and get in great shape.  If the outcome is positive and it causes us to make some well needed changes to our diet and exercise routine,  "All's well that ends well".  After all, we all would like to look our best in anticipation of an event we have been looking forward to.

Certainly one of the most rewarding parts of finding a balance between your activity level and diet is how much better you will look and feel.  It is important to consult with your doctor to make sure you are consuming enough calories and protein in your diet.  There are so many unhealthy approaches to losing weight and fad diets promising a quick fix.  It can be very frustrating and confusing not to be taken in by scams.  Expecially when it has been such a difficult and emotional process to lose the weight and keep it off.  It is very important to have a supportive network of friends and caring family who have your best interests at heart.

So for the year ahead here is hoping that you will stay healthy and well.    I will be happier in the spring when the weather warms up.  But honestly, we have been fortunate in Buffalo this year and the weather has been unseasonably mild.  I was taking long walks outside up until just recently, early December.  I will tell you it makes a tremendous difference in how much better I feel!
