I could "tell" you how much I want to lose weight. For me, it's not about looking good, though that would be a very good benefit.
For me, it's about being healthy, in mind, body, and spirit.
This year I am running a 5K in May and the very next weekend I want to run a 10K. The first one is for the fight against Breast Cancer the second one is a fundraiser for Grace Centers of Hope.
But I can talk about it all I want. The change can go on and on in my mouth and nothing will ever change. However, when the change happens in my heart, everything can change. Let the change begin inside and transform to the outside. My favorite song is "from the inside out", it's even my ring tone...
In my heart, in my soul,
Lord I give you control
Consume me from the inside out Lord
Let justice and praise become my embrace
To love You from the inside out
I've been trying to eat well, and then we went to camp... ugh... I could have made good choices, but I didn't. But I did walk... a lot! SOmetimes we have to make the change again!
I've made a few changes... no more getting my nails done (time and financial save). I don't have time to work out... I will make the time. Cutting down on the TV, reading more. More water. But more importantly, my heart is changing!
Psalm 51:10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
