So here it is, my WHY.
W - Wellness increases the quality of my life RIGHT NOW. Living better, exercising more, eating healthier - all of it comes together to give me more energy. Health makes me more able to chase my little boys around and enjoy them more every day. When I have more energy I feel more productive, there is so much I want to fit in to my every day! As I get stronger, my body is less prone to illness, which means I can spend more time with family and friends doing what I love best. Wellness improves my quality of life all around - now and in the future.
H - Health means that I don't have to worry as much about how diabetes is going to damage my body. I don't get as tired from ridiculous blood sugars. I can give my mind other priorities - there is no need to be concerned about the possibility of losing sight, or limbs due to diabetes. My organs will function properly, and I can spend time doing other things. Health feels good.
Y - YoungOnes: I have 3 little boys and I want to be part of their lives as they grow. I want to see them graduate from high school, get married, make babies. I want to know my grandchildren. I don't want my children to have memories of a sick mama that was laid up in bed because of diabetes, a mama that could not enjoy them and spend time with them. I want to be active as my boys grow and continue to be active in their lives once they have grown into honorable men.
