Goal Weight

What is your goal weight and why? Do you have a set weight you would like to be at in the future? Do you aim to get to that weight by eating right? Do you try to get to that weight by exercising? Do you combine eating right and exercising in order to reach your goal weight and maintain it?

I can tell you that for me it was never about setting a goal weight. My goal was to get healthier so that when I took my daughter up a flight of stairs to tuck her into bed and read a story, that I wasn't out of breath when I sat down to read to her. My goal was to be able to get up in the morning without feeling like I needed 4 more hours of sleep. My goal was to live longer in order to be there for my family. My goal was to have more energy to do what needed to be done everyday. My goal was to feel good and be healthy.

I don't think that eating right and exercising is a magic pill that will melt the weight off and have you ready for a bikini in 6 weeks, but I do think it is a long term health plan with the added bonus of weight loss.
So often people are looking for the quick and easy way to look good, but at what price?

Thank you all for the positive feedback about my own health journey! I really appreciate the emails and letters!

Happy Saturday & Sunday!!!

I just found your blog and like it. Do you have any suggestions for someone (me) who is on 40mg of steroids a day and has limited stamina due to heart problems? I've looked into water aerobics and am waiting on a call back but wondered what i could do nutrition wise. Thanks!
