Look good in my clothes. Have the energy to do the things I want to do. Be self sufficient in my golden years.

Like others, so many. I primarily want to get healthier and get off my medications. But, on the vain side, I hate looking at the flab in the mirror - it disgusts me - and I want to look better for my husband. I also want to wear "cute" clothes again and be able to buy clothes in "normal" stores when I'm out with friends.

I sweep row, so being overweight is something I cannot hide, and it is embarrassing. I am not too overweight to row, but I am bigger than most in my group.

Honestly? I want to feel attractive and confident again. The better health is an added bonus.

I want to live to be 100! I used to joke about this all the time, but why not, right? Also, I found out that I have very high cholesterol. I'm almost positive that it's a hereditary cause and not lifestyle, but changing my lifestyle certainly can't hurt!

I can't stand to look at myself and I know I'm not healthy this way, so I've made up my mind to make a change.

I shaped up for myself and nobody else. I wanted to be healthy. Those commercials where the wives would say, "I lost weight and now I'm my husband's trophy wife!" did and still do, make me gag. I was not successful until I did it for ME and nobody else. I tried losing for weddings, other events, other people, etc...But at the end of the day, it usually only works if you do it for yourself. I definitely got it down.

To get my body in the best shape I can get it and to accept what I see. Not trying to look like anyone else, just the best version of myself based on my opinion

I'm extremely overweight and starting to be on medication due to my weight. Ridiculous not to lose the weight.

We all have our own reasons, which is great-- I think it helps to just give ourselves a little reminder now and then why we work so hard for who we are becoming :)

Partially I am losing weight to improve my health, partially I am losing weight due to vanity after seeing pictures of me and my daughters at the beach this summer. I just looked bad!

Mine was really silly. I had (well, still have) a new boyfriend who is very thin and 5'6". I didn't want people to look at us and be like "why is that guy with that fat girl" LOL The guys before him were over 6' and 200+lb ex-football player types so it didn't bother me as much w/ them.

For me, there's so many!: To set a healthy example for my daughter, to fit into my "skinny jeans", to be able to complete a sprint triathlon, and to relieve some of my stress and anxiety (that might be the main reason!) What is yours?
