I recently had a conversation with someone where again, a light bulb turned on over my head. How many people out there are losing weight for health reason's, and how many for vanity? I'm not going to lie, I would really love to fit into cute little dresses and feel more "put together" than, "this fits, I don't feel very pretty, but it fits". I would love to look in the mirror and think about how "sassy my high heals make me look" and not, "I look like fat girl wearing sassy heals".
I feel that my main reason for wanting to lose weight is for health reason's. In my very own opinion I could care less about being "thin" and having people think of me as "thin". I want to look healthy, and toned. But most of all I want to FEEL the feeling that healthy is.
I remember the feeling I use to get after a good run, I have dreams of it (weird, right?). My lungs moving in and out, it rushes oxygen to ever space in my body. Then the dream gets kind of crazy and I start jumping really high (I know, nothing to do with it). Finally I have the let down that its a dream and wake up.
There will always be a little part of me that wants to look in the mirror and see a svelte stunner in a little black dress, but I will not lose sight of the "healthy" overall goal I have.
Why do you do it? Health or Vanity?
