For all the doubters and talkers, here is why I have lost weight and keep it up until I know I am an a healthy position. Yes, I do enjoy running. Yes, I do enjoy my healthier lifestyle. But I am doing this for very few selfish reasons. For myself to live longer and healthier. I am also doing this for my family. I want to be able to be a good dad and husband.
Last week I met with my Family Doctor to discuss my weight loss and where I should go. We picked my next goal weight to be 200 pounds. Its scary and exciting all in one. But the best part was looking at my blood work. She was super excited how good my blood work came back. This is why I decided to lose weight. Since I have been with our doctor, I have only had two tests done. One after six months of Weight Watchers and one December 30. My one in April I know was a great improvement from one before I lost weight but the newest test reminds you why you need to work out and eat healthy. This is what motivates me. It motivates me to not have to take blood pressure medicine, water pills or any other crap that I would need or have taken already in my life as a 30 something. Instead I am healthy by eating right and working out.
This is what motivates me on my runs. To get healthier for my kids and family. I love surprising my doctors.
