Because I'm fat!!!...Obvious answer, but that's it in a nutshell. I'd like to climb a staircase without getting winded. And I'd like to fit into all the clothes I bought but have never worn because they're in the size I'm supposed to be - and always thought I'd be, "in a few weeks" - even though I bought some of them a few years ago. Ridiculous, yes, but true. Most still have the tags on.
I want to be able to move easier because we go to car shows where there is 3000 or more cars to walk around and look at. I want to be able to enjoy myself. play with my grandkids without losing my breathe.
keep on trucking

My Doctor said I was pre-diabetic and I am determined not to develop diabetes. I look and feel so much better when I have exercise in my life. Plus the endorphins help me control the pain of Fibromyalgia.

I initially started because I knew I had to start eating better and moving more frequently and I needed to lose weight. It hadn't affected my health, but it was only a matter of time. Ironically after I'd lost 50 pounds, changed my eating completely and was walking every day, I had a heart attack! Since then I have lost another 30 pounds and want to keep the weight off for health reasons and to wear all the great new clothes.
Persistence is more important than perfection.
