I definitely want the health benefits everyone has listed, longer life span, fitting into better size clothes, for my kids, to love my body, and generally being healthier. However, I also have some "fun" reasons for wanting to lose weight.
1.) Fit into a normal bathtub. (No more showers ~ Yay!!)
2.) Fit on a roller coaster
3.) Fit into the seat of a new Chevy Spark or Nissan Versa (need a new car and love these 2)
4.) Bathing suit!!
5.) Stylish clothes (What I WANT to wear, not just what will fit.)
6.) Sit comfortably in a movie theater seat.
7.) Not be worried if I cant do something, just because of my weight.
