3. Every Saturday I will weigh myself and report my weight. Even if I don't like it.
4. I will start weighing and measuring my food again. I have gotten away from that.

Reasons I want to lose weight:
1. I believe it will reduce my pain
2. I will be more fit, more comfortable, more energetic.
3. I have more energy.
4. I will fell better, sleep better, move better
5. My health will improve
