The Reasons I Want to Lose Weight

Sunday, September 23, 2012

Ok, to put this correctly.....ah, just spit it out......

I don't want them to have to use a crane to get my dead body out of my house when I die! There I said it!

I know I won't know what will be happening, but I would just like to make sure I have a regular-sized, healthy body before I go....hopefully, a long time from now. And I'd like to have time to enjoy it!

#2 - I love to travel and DO things, and for such a long time now, I've been unable or uncomfortable doing things because of my weight, so I am committed to lose these many extra pounds forever.

#3 - Making healthy lifestyle changes is the way I am doing it, and SparkPeople is so amazing.
I really don't know how I stumbled on the website, but I thank the powers that be for guiding me here.

#4 - I want to play with my grandchildren and be active with them.

#5 - I want to sit in a beach chair and not bring it up with me when I stand up! or break it when I sit down!

#6 - I want to enjoy life as a fit and healthy woman! I'm already pretty happy, so that isn't a problem, I just want the body to go with it!!!

#7 - I want to buy regular-sized clothes and look good in them!

#8 - I would like to not be invisible!

#9 - I'd like to have a guy leer at me once-in-a-while.....or just once would be good! Ok, they'd be old, but they'd still be appreciating me!

#10 - Just want to be able to do whatever I want to do.

These are some of the reasons I want to lose weight.....and I know I can do this with the help of SP many positive, helpful ways to stay healthy and wonderful people to help me laugh more than I already do!

    Great list! O.K., the first one was a little macabre, but I get it. I'll pass on the leering in #9 too, but I getcha on that one too! The rest we certainly have in common, (O.K. no grandkids here) especially having our weight stop us from going places and doing things we've dreamed of doing. That one's a BIGGY for me! The main point here is; you CAN do it!! You have a great attitude and a lot of wonderful reasons to get'er done!

    You just read my mind. I think about #1, avoid traveling right now, Just had the grandkids and had trouble playing with them, hate shopping for plus size clothes and it's limitations.

You will be successful!

    thank you for posting this! I share many of the same reasons for wanting to lose weight as you, especially being able to buy regular size clothing off the rack!! That would be a huge win for me. Also I would just like to feel like a regular sized human for once! It was nice to see someone else wo feels the way I do!
