A friend wrote about her motivations in wanting weight loss. I think honesty in this allows better focus. It's OKAY to say that I want to look attractive. So here are my most recent motivations for a healthier lifestyle:

1. I want to run a marathon this year. The feeling during running my half last year was just utter fear that I wouldn't come in under the time limit. Less weight will speed me up and make that easier.

2. I want to get in my cute, one-size-down professional wardrobe. I don't want to go buy more.

3. When I am 20 lbs lighter, my boobs look bigger, and my backside looks better. Last time I was that weight, I LIKED how my body looked, and LOVED my curves.

4. I have more energy when I exercise and eat well. This is independent of weight loss.

5. Preparation for a healthy pregnancy, some time in the future. No, I'm not pregnant now. When I am, I want to start healthy, and keep it up during and afterwards.

    Yup, we're here! I'm looking at the MPLS marathon on June 5th. If I'm not ready by then, then the Medtronic TC in October.

    Those are all wonderful motivations! Especially the marathon. We're supposed to have the most beautiful urban marathon here (I'm assuming you ended up moving to my general area), so you're in luck. :)
