I wrote these in my journal and after re-reading them I felt a sense of peace and inspiration. I thought I'd share them with you here. I didn't think these out I just wrote what was truly in my heart at the moment.
1. Because I want to honor god by honoring the body he gifted me
2. To set a stronger example for my husband and our daughter
3. So I won't feel like I'm drowning when I lay down to sleep
4. To rid myself of my sleep apnea
5. So I can walk again on my artificial leg
6. to feel healthy
7. So I can say I started something and saw it through
8. Because it's best for ME
9. To wear a size 12 again
10. To be at peace with the woman staring back at me in the mirror
What are your reasons my friends?
