3 More Reasons To Get Started Losing Weight Today

I don't want to be this woman!

I don' t want to be this woman!

I’ve been scrolling through the archives here, from before I did the major site change, and found this little gem from almost 3 years ago: 10 Reasons To Get Started Losing Weight Today.

Of course, in addition to that list is the really popular 100 Reasons To Lose 100 Pounds page.

But with the discovery that I’m now considered a Type 2 Diabetic, plus the recent passing of my birthday, I’ve got even more reasons to list out here.

  1. Extended Health Issues. I’ve now had a 5 year battle against cervical cancer, having had biopsies twice and a chunk removed from my cervix once. While I’m not 100% sure that the weight has anything major to do with it, if anything at all, it sure doesn’t help. There are surgeries involved and extra weight just makes everything a greater risk. Add Diabetes to this, and now my body is basically telling me to get my head out of my butt and do something before it decides to fail me completely.
  2. Still No Man, Still No Babies. Gah, I feel like a desperate retard every time I say (or write) anything about this. I just turned 32, and no matter how you slice it, even a “healthy” woman would start to panic at this age. Without getting into a debate about whether or not a man should love me for who I am and not what I look like, the bottom line is that I used that as a crutch for nearly two decades now. In fact, it was my protection in a way. Little did I know then that I’d actually be protecting myself better by having had more dating/relationship experience, which would’ve come naturally had I been more visually appealing to the men I’ve found myself interested in.
  3. It Just Feels Better. Mentally, emotionally, and physically, good health just makes life a little better all around. No pain from sitting or standing too long. No depression from shopping for new clothes. No insecurity from hanging out with thin women or the men who ogle them. No fear of what may or may not happen to your health because of bad habits.
