Willpower.

The room is quiet for a moment, the women sitting at the table lost in contemplation.This was a meeting that they had had many times before; they always brought forth the same reasons, and always came to the same conclusions. Unfortunately, none of them really felt that today would bring a different result.
"So, we're agreed then?" asked Heart tiredly, breaking the silence.

"Oh, yes. Intellectually, we've known it's what we had to do all along. Healthy eating and exercise have been shown to have definite results on positive mental health." said Brain, pushing her glasses up on her nose.

"Besides that, we need to be setting a better example for these girls! We don't need them to be picking up our unhealthy habits. And truth be told, I feel like crap!" exclaimed Body, pounding her fist on the table.

"Calm down," said Heart, patting Body's arm. "We all know that. We also know that we want to be around to see them grow up. We want to see our grandchildren. There is a very long list of reasons, that we all know. No one is arguing with you, remember?"

"I think we all know what the problem is, ladies," said Brain.
As one, their heads swiveled to look down to the other end of the table.

    1. Thanks, Julie. It's meant to be my willpower - although, I suppose it could be me; we do look an awful lot alike. ;)
