Why are we loosing weight?What do you want to change?
How do you want to look and feel? What things will you be able to do in the future with a slimmer healthier body.

Well, I thought about all these questions and my answer to why is for me! I want to lose weight, I want to be healthy, I want to look good and love my body, I want to start a family and be healthy for my children and husband. It's for me and I know I can do it.

Ill have more energy, ill be confident, ill be a better role model for my kids, nieces, nephews and other family members, I will want to try more things and I will be me instead of what I am now. I just can't wait to get there! Along the way, I am already enjoying losing some lbs, inches gaining more energy and health with a lower resting heart rate and blood pressure and becoming a better cook! What great things Ive already seen will just keep getting better and that's what's keeping me motivated to reach my healthy self.

    Words of wisdom!
I've finally realized I'm doing this to improve my health; not just to lose pounds or look better. I want to FEEL better; to have more energy and stamina; to be able to live a productive and independent life as long as possible.

  I want to live a long strong and satisfied life and feel comfortable in my own physical body and the only way to do that is to lose weight and the only way to do that is to eat healthy and exercise plus stay active each new day.

My health was dragging me to a early grave and the weight was just helping push me there, after my stroke at 49 i knew i had to change. My mom died when she was 53 from cancer, my day died from Alzheimer at 81..i will be happy if i split the difference. emoticon

    My answer is similar. I wanted to be healthier. I was over 500 lbs and only going up. I was immobile and never left my home. I could have contributed to the family income had I not been so heavy.
