How Bad Do You Want It

I listened to these lyrics yesterday while working out. (Tim McGraw, "How Bad Do You Want It")

Are you hungry?
Are you thirsty?
Is it a fire that burns you up inside?
How bad do you want it?
How bad do you need it?
Are you eating, sleeping, dreaming
With that one thing on your mind?
How bad do you want it?
How bad do you need it?
Cause if you want it all
You've got to lay it all out on the line

I want to be free from the chains of obesity like nothing else. Each day I am making positive steps toward this. I pray for help to "stay the course" even when things are difficult. Nothing worth having in life comes easy.

Sometimes my lack of patience amazes me. I have been obese my entire life, and now I get so impatient wanting the scale to move. I truly think in a year or a year and a half, I will look back to some of these entries in my blog and laugh. I have been obese since I was 8-9 years old. I am ready to live a life with no chains.
