I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what drives us to make healthy changes when they’re not easy. And I really want to know how everyone else feels about this. Obviously, we know we should get healthy because we’ll feel better and live longer, but there’s a lot more to it, at least, for me.
If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: www.alltheweigh.com so we can all see your FMM questions and answers.

The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!
FMM: The Driving Force
What is the driving force behind your weight-loss?
As I said in the beginning of my post, I know that getting healthy means that I’ll feel better and live longer. The pain I felt as I walked down the block at 400 pounds has been replaced with energy. My blood pressure is better…My cholesterol is better, etc. And while that should be enough to continue pushing my toward my goal, there’s a lot more to it. I’m driven by the desire to be pretty.
I know that if I said that to many of you, you’d say “But Kenlie, you’re already pretty.” And I’d love you for it, but let’s get real. You know what I mean, right? I want tofeel normal and cute. I want to wear high heels (not just wedges) without worrying that I’ll break the heels, and I want to ride my bike without thinking about how ridiculous I look on my itty bitty seat. I also want to look good in skinny jeans. I wear heels and ride my bike in spite of my worries about how I look, but I’d like to reach a point in which these things no longer come to mind.
Now it’s your turn. Share your answers, and don’t forget to come back and link up. Happy Monday!
