Find your Why
Find your Why

I ask WHY a lot. I spend a lot of time talking about with clients, and thinking about, what we call a person’s WHY.

For me, I had many strong, painful reasons WHY I had to make a change:

  • I hated the way I looked. I wanted to be in pictures with my kids again.

  • I hated the way I felt. My weight made me hunch over when I sat down, too tired even to hold myself up. I wanted more energy.

  • I hated the way I was eating: fast food, frozen meals, leftover mac & cheese from the kids. I was utterly addicted to starches and carbs. I wanted to eat better.

  • I hated that I was going to shortchange my children by dying sooner than I should. Being an older mom with young kids, I wanted to extend my life through health and spend as many years as possible with them.

Sure, the doctor told me my labs were awful across the board - high blood pressure, high cholesterol, tachycardia, high triglycerides, pre-diabetic. But for years, those things weren’t a strong enough push for me to change.

My own intense dissatisfaction with my physical health was the pain I needed to take the best first step I’ve ever taken for myself. And it was a strong enough WHY to take the next step. And the next. And the next.

And in doing so - by keeping my focus on my WHY - all the rest took care of itself, including those pesky lab results.

My WHY is what continues to drive me today to REMAIN healthy and make healthy choices day after day. I’ve never lost sight of my WHY after all this time.

And now I have a new WHY to add to the list...

I NEVER want to feel like that EVER again.

Knowing that you need to get healthier isn’t enough. Wanting to lose weight isn’t enough. You have to have a strong WHY to actually step out of your comfort zone and make a drastic change in your health and your life. Keeping a laser focus on it during your journey helps keep you committed and motivated as well.

👣 For those of you who haven’t started your health journey yet, look that WHY right in the face. You can’t conquer it until you have a clear picture of what it looks like.

For those of you who have taken that first step, never lose sight of WHY you began. ❤️
