Jillian Michaels constantly says 'Figure out the WHY and the HOW becomes possible.' Thomas is my WHY.
I want to be fit. I want to be active. I want him to never choose the TV or the outdoors. I want him to grow up with a Mummy and Daddy who are active, fit and busy, so it never becomes an option for him. He will just think that is life.
I also want to live for as long as possible and not just exist, but LIVE. I want to run with my children (and grandchildren). I want to dance and jump and play. I want to scoop them up and throw them into the sky. I want to crawl with them and explore the world at their level. You just can't do that with an extra 50lbs hanging around your middle. I want to never be a reason their friends poke fun or ammunition for a bully. Part of giving your child the best life, is being the best you.
Thomas is my favorite and I love him THE MOST. He gave me a reason to care, a reason to change and a reason to be better.
