How your grandchildren can provide the motivation you need for weight loss and healthy living

Picture of bowl with oatmeal, half an orange, 1 inch of orange juice in glass and some nuts. Text reads if you've been gaining weight and you want to be losing weight, you're going to have to eat differently, eat less, and be a little hungry sometimes. You are worth it. You can do it.

Can you think of a better weight loss motivation?  Grandchildren.  They are so sweet, adorable and wonderful!

I want to be around a long time to help my kids with their kids. This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our Disclosure Policy for details.

I want to hold those grandbabies, rock them to sleep, help them with their baths, sing lullabies and folk tunes to them.

I want to take them to the playground and push them on the swingset.  I want to climb up in the playground equipment and help them sit down to slide down the slide.  I can almost hear them laughing now!  I want to go on long walks, play in the creek or swim at the pool.

Now I know sometimes God doesn’t allow His children to be healthy, but I’m going to do everything I can to be healthy and that includes maintaining a healthy weight.  And for me that means some weight loss! What about you?

You aren’t too fat to lose weight.

You aren’t too old.

You aren’t too __________.   That means you have no excuses.  Start today. Start where you are. Set a goal and stick with it.

That’s what I’m doing. I have pictures up of cute grandchildren to help motivate me.

Post pictures of grandchildren up all over the place to help motivate you.  Join a class!  Go to a nationally recognized weight loss support group or program.

Do whatever it takes to lose the weight and be as healthy as you can. WHY?? Because you have some of the best grandchildren on the planet.Click To Tweet

Figure out what you need to do to eat 500 calories a day less so that you can start losing weight.

You can do this, one ounce, one pound at a time.

Weight Loss: Whatever it Takes

Important: Before starting any weight loss program, diet or exercise, you should see your doctor. Even if you need to take classes, go through a behavior modification/ stress relief program, you need to do whatever it takes. Your grandchildren need you!
