I'm eating healthy and exercising for my health. I'm also trying to reduce some of the belly fat I've gained since entering the menopause stage of my life by dropping 8-10 lbs. I used to be able to lose easily but now that I'm over 50 it's a lot harder. If my body fights me on this, I'll accept my body the way it is in the stage of my life and continue working on a healthier lifestyle.

Good health is not determined by the number on the scale.

I want to look fit and feel good--but I recently got re-motivated about 2 months before I knew I was going back home for a visit. My sister and best friend have been getting healthier and I felt it was time I got back on track with my weight loss goals. emoticon

To be more myself. I was a healthy weight at one time but not healthy. I hope to get back there by getting healthier. I can then do things I want to do like be more active and not put as much stress on my joints, improve my overall health. I don't feel very good or like the person I used to be. I want to feel like I can do anything.

I want to feel good and be able to live my life (rather than just watching others live). :)

Loosing weight is the single biggest thing I can do to support my health and reduce the risk of disease.

The journey is as important as the goal.

It may not be a good one, but I'm just tired of feeling fat. On my way back to healthy curves. ;)

Don't get stuck living a life you don't want because you don't have the courage to live the life you do want~

You get the best efforts from others not by lighting a fire beneath them, but by building a fire within~

Life is not about waiting for the storms to's about learning how to dance in the rain~

Respect for the interconnective nature of mind, body, spirit and emotions being healthy to achieve the highest quality thriving life possible. This is not a reason to lose weight anymore, rather a reason to maintain my weight loss. emoticon

I have been stuck at a plateau for longer than I would like to admit here. I need motivational reasons to lose weight. I know I need to lose weight, for example, because I have GERD, and losing inches around the belly reduces that problem. I'm hoping you can give me some insight into the issues that push you to stay on track.

And thanks for your responses in advance!
