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.

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 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 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!

And, a very vain reason, to wear tight fitting clothes without having all those bulges!
