Sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I miss enjoying leaving the house.

I'm afraid I'm not personally qualified to confuse cats, but I can recommend an extremely good service.

Because I did not want to be obese and I was only point one under it

I have lost 18k (40lbs) and fell great which make it worth while.

My wife and I have a son, Joseph. Due to career decisions, and other issues, (some of my own fears of becoming a father like mine, whom I hated growing up) he was born when I turned 40. Joe will be an only child, and as a brother of 3, I feel very guilty about this.

I feel I owe it to him, to be around as long as I can be for him. Already 10 or more years older than a lot of his peer's parents, I don't want to put him in a position where he questions his place in the world, should he find himself without a dad, and or mom.

Knowing I have risk factors for heart disease, and an unhealthy diet, I feel I owe it to my entire family as well as myself to lower those risks in any way I can.

I've already accomplished a lot of things that are on the list here -- and I'm really happy with the way that my body looks when it's all covered up -- but now that it's almost bathing suit season I want to look even better than I do currently. I want my thighs to be leaner and I definitely want my back to be more sculpted. Oh, and I'd really like to get my waist back so I don't look like a tree trunk in my size 8 bathing suit...

Primarily to be more comfortable with myself. I like the way I was a few pounds lighter, and I want to keep myself in check, so that the pounds don't continue to creep up on me.

VEGAS! Every July 4th weekend I work a tradeshow (Martial Arts Super Show) and we have a fancy party (The Gold Event) that i'm required to attend and work - it's cocktail attire and i've always felt a little frumpy compared to all the in shape and fit insturctors walking around. This year I want to wear a cute little cocktail dress.

Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels.

Losing weight means less pressure on back and joints. Having had spinal fusion I am very aware that extra weight can lead to more back pain and lower quality of life issues. At 56, I want to do everything I can to stay active and fit. Overall, I have lost 35 pounds and want to lose 5 more pounds in upcoming weeks.
