I want to feel confident again, have more energy to keep up with my almost 2 and 3 year olds, and also want to lose weight so I will be attractive to my husband again.

I want to feel and look better, which will raise my self-esteem that I have been having problems with since I was little. I want to fit into those cute clothes at the store, and I want to just be HEALTHY!!!!

I want to feel better. And I want to prolong my life so that I will have more time with my husband and granddaughter. The weight that I had gained was slowly killing me. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood sugars, sleep apnea, back and joint pain. It was going to be a slow and painful death. I have lost 37 pounds, which isn't that mush when compared to what I still need to lose, but already I feel that I have added years and quality to my life. I am doing this for ME! emoticon

I don't want my knees to hurt or my right leg to get more bowed than it already is. I want to wake up without my right hip hurting and to be able to sleep through the night without being awakened by body pain. I want to be healthy enough to get on the floor with my granddaughter and be able to get up without being embarrassed by the way I do it. I want to look at a woman who has some self control when it comes to food because I know that if I can do that, other issues will also get resolved. I am tired of fighting the inner child that wants immediate gratification. I hate arguing with myself of becoming conscious only to find that I have been unconsciously eating. I would like just one more time in my life to hear my husband say that I look good to him, that he might actually like what he sees when he sees me.

I want to lose weight for a couple of reasons. Firstly, like many of you, I want to look and feel healthy. Second, I want to be in great shape before I have kids. All of my friends who have had children say that if you are healthy and in shape before you get pregnant (and stay that way during your pregnancy) it will be so much easier to get back to your weight before the baby after you give birth. I am not planning on having kids for a while, though, so I figure now is a great time to start!

I Want to lose my fear. Fear of getting fatter, fear of over eating at buffets, fear of being in a bathing suit in public, fear of embarrassing my children, fear of never loving how I look.
Good luck to you! I wish you much success!

I want to lose weight for myself. Mainly, it's for my health. I have PCOS, and I'd like to have children someday. This weight will not help me achieve that. And I'd definitely be lieing if I said it wasn't for appearance, because it's that, too. I want to feel good about myself when I look in the mirror.

I want to loose weight because of my high blood pressure and I would love to loose enough weight to stop taking that medicine. I also want to loose weight for my hubby and kids so I am around longer for them. Take care.

I want to lose this weight because I know that I am better than this. I have something inside that I know can't be seen. I am looking to shine outside as I do inside.

So many reasons (health, apperance)but really, I just want to be able to wear shorts without my thighs slapping together. It is uncomfortable, unattractive and just not in keeping with the goddess I am inside. LOL I have 30 pounds to lose and have just gotten serious about weight the last 2 weeks. I LOVE Spark. All of you inspire me. emoticon

lower my cholesterol, be healthier, look better in my clothes, be a good example, be able to do things without breathing heavy, so my legs don't ache every night lying in bed, being able to stand seeing a picture of myself, it was about time, etc.

I'm trying to feel better. I'm tired of being out of breath when going up the stairs to my apartment and it hurting to sit down when I wear certain pairs of pants. I also want to get pregnant next year and I want to have a healthy pregnancy for myself and my baby. :)

I want to lose weight before I get pregnant. It's just not good for me or the baby if I'm not healthy. I also want to look good. I'm tired of feeling like the biggest person in the room. Most of my co-workers and close friends are skinny. I feel like when we go out, I look out of place. I also hate eating in public because people might be thinking that I shouldn't be eating anything but salads. A lot of it is in my head, but I know it happens. I also have body image issues. In my mind I'm not big. When I look in the mirror, it is a shock. It's odd because when I was younger, and skinnier, I used to think I was fat. Looking at pictures now, I wish I could go back to way I used to look.

lol, Although I am really feeling now that I want to be healthier, it all started out by wanting to look better and be able to be more active.

I truly want to improve my quality of life and have outward appearance match how I feel inside.

My reasons: to prove to the world, and more importantly myself that I am in control of my body. I can be healthy and happy if I set my mind to it.

I do it because I CAN DO HARD THINGS!
