1. I'm too fat
2. I weigh too much
3. I am heavier than I should be

When it all boils down, there's only one reason.

EVERYONE knows EXACTLY what they NEED to do to be fit, healthy, and slim.
The problem is, nobody does it.

1. So when I go clothes shopping, I don't have to feel self-conscious about which section I'm in.
2. So when I go swing dancing, I can keep dancing for more than one or two songs in a row.
3. So that when I do (eventually) have kids, I'll be able to keep up with them.

1. Stay healthy - I've been getting constant headaches DAILY, went to the doctor, and didn't find anything serious... so I started to exercise again, and eat more healthy.. so far, NO headaches :) I tend to keep it that way!

2. I can fit my clothes again! - I'm tired of wearing big blouses/shirts to hide mid section. It's time to lose it off instead of hiding it

3. To be HAPPY with myself

1. my husband told me that he was not as attracted to me anymore.
2. I am tired of always being in pain (back, knees, ankles, skin problems etc).
3. I would like a strong, healthy, and functional body. I had it once before and was fit and healthy I could complete in a triathlon. I looked great in any clothes and could buy off the rack. I had no problem getting a date and compliments from the men around me. I miss that and want it back (especially from my husband... who loves me no matter what my size but is also sometimes painfully honest).

My poor body has been through hell the last few years and I want to treat it right
I am a better person when I eat right and work out. My mood is so much better and I am easier for others to be around

My top 3 reasons for losing weight are:
1. To be active with my children and grandchildren.
2. To be healthy and feel good--maybe rid myself from diabetes!
3. So I will feel good knowing my husband is happy with my weight.

1. Lower my cholesterol to a healthy range
2. Lessen joint pain

AND, you didn't ask for it, but #4 - To be able to grab something out of my closet knowing it will fit comfortably and look good - WITHOUT ALWAYS THINKING ABOUT IT 24/7.

To be able to love myself and feel confident.
To feel healthy and full of life.
To be able to feel sexy..

2/1/12 12:55 A

#1 reason is to get healthy and feel better! I'm too young to have the body issues that I already do (ie, bad joints)
#2 to feel better about myself. I'm a really outgoing person and have a very active social life, but sometimes I feel like I have to fake it. I want to be confident!
#3 to look better in my clothes!

My reasons:

1. To improve my strength for climbing
2. To finally feel confident with boys
3. To push my body to really see what it can do!

You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know. - Rene Daumal
