My doctors told me I should lose some weight to help manage my migraines and reduce my risk for cancer, which runs in my family.

So, here I go!

I'm tired of being the fat twin. I am an identical twin, she lives in Connecticut. I'm tired of using this climate as an excuse. Everyone esle around me is loosing weight and getting healthy. I'm tired of sitting on the fence. It's time to join it and feel good again and not let winter be an excuse. I'm going back to Connecticut in May and its time to feel good. No more fat twin, here we come

My goal is to be healthy for my family, especially to be able to do the traveling I want to do by canoe and camping in the US and internationally. Short term goal is to fit into my ballroom dancing shoes so I can be comfortable dancing in public again. If my ankles get slimmer by losing 10-20 pounds, that should do it!

My biggest reason for losing weight it? Energy. Carrying around the extra pounds is exhausting. The superficial reason is to look better. The craziest reason would be the opportunity to shop for new clothes.

I started many years ago on Sparkpeople to lose weight for all the wrong reasons. Although they were valid reasons, I always "fell off the wagon". I wanted to lose weight to "look good", "for my children/future grandchildren", "to fit into better, smaller clothes", etc. This year I had many eye openers of how out of shape I am. Now I am losing weight and getting fit so I can walk without being out of breath and be healthy. The weight has not come off as fast as I would like, but this time instead of getting upset and quitting, I have measured in other ways. I have lost a lot of inches, dropped both a shirt size and pant size, and I can walk a distance without hurting or needing my inhaler. This all since only July 4th, 2012...oh and I have lost 12 pounds also.

I'm tired of being tired.
I'm tired of aching much of the time.
I'm tired of not being able to shop for clothes at Target.
I'm tired of having to order my bras online, I want to be able to try them on at the store and buy them off the rack.
I get too tired trying to keep up with the kids.
I just want to stop being tired...

An excuse is just a challenge to figure out how to do something different.

I turned 50 this past April and even though I've been fairly healthy my whole life, I weigh the highest I've ever been, and all my lab tests are borderline for high blood pressure, high glucose, and high cholesterol (especially triglycerides), I don't want these indicators to get worse. I want to stay healthy!

Back again for a second go-around.

My main reason for losing the weight is to get rid of the pain in my knees and hips. I hate how my knees start a dull throb, which sadly is my barometer for being overweight.

Maybe while doing that, I'll actually feel sexy too. emoticon

Less pain and more life, with quality. I have arthritis and when I weighed 250 to 280 I had horrible pain all over frim arthritis and fibromyalgia. When I got down to 180 I felt fantastic. At 220, which I have gone back up to, I still am able to walk 3 miles in an hour, though I am getting more pain in my knees and feet, especially. I am trying to get back under 200 as my first goal and hope to be there by July. I know I can do it. Gotta lay off the ice cream and really control my portions. Also, as I increase my activity I know that will help with the weight loss and reduction of pain, too. emoticon

My reason for losing weight is definitely to be healthy. My weight has been a yo-yo, and I put on more weight again this past year. a year ago, my mom was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Anything I can do to stay healthy and reduce my risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes is important for me right now.

well, ms cityzozo, I happen to know you in real life so here is what I have to say! You are incredibly beautiful, not to mention feisty. Those two things are a good combo for great sex! if you are not getting all you want, then blame that on your man *wink* just don't tell him I said that!

Hello. There are so many reasons, so I don't understand why losing is so hard for me!
I want to make my knees feel better, stop snoring, improve my health, get a healthy BMI to reduce chances of getting diseases caused by obesity.
I want to be a good role model, get fit so I can do fun things like, ski, skate, ride horse, run, swim without floating like a bobber, go to a water park.
I want to have more room in an airplane seat and on theme-park rides.
I want to look better to improve my self-confidence.

I got married and seemingly gained "happy weight". I am tired of my clothes not fitting, being ashamed of how my body looks and I don't like feeling this way. We are trying to get pregnant and I don't want to start off being heavier than I should be. Most importantly, I don't want to pass down my unhealthy habits to my children.

1. I'm sick of being the fat one in my family.
2. I want to buy pants with waist size smaller than 38 (I'm about a 40 right now).
3. I would love to have some muscle definition.
4. I don't like getting winded going up stairs.
5. Honestly, it feels great having people ask me about my weight loss.

My reason is to be halthy is for me first, but to also be around long enough to see my daughter finish growing up and see her accomplish her goals. I also would love to stop shopping in the plus sizes.

I hit 50 this year and am really lucky to be in good health. The plan is to stay that way and grow old gracefully!

I have many but mostly for my kids. I want to be able to play basketball, softball... with them. I want to be able to bend over and tie my shoes without holding my breath. I want to be able to shop in normal size section for clothes, something I have not done for 15 years. I just want to be thin so I like myself again.

They say to get rid of the too small clothes. Why? because most of it will be out of style. Plus, it is fun to celebrate with new clothes!

I want to fit my cute clothes again (even though I just got rid of most of them...) and I want to make my back feel better, have better posture, be healthier for the kids, but most of all, I want to do it for me.

To be here for my kids and their kids, or as long as God-given possible.

I want to lose the weight to make it easier on my knees and hips. I want to be able to look in the mirror and feel sexy.

Anyway, there's way to many reasons to list here so these are my top ones for the moment.

My newest reason to want to lose weight came last night after my family and I were looking through picture albums and I heard many comments about how good I used to look, how skinny my neck was and was asked- how long ago was that?

That gave me new motivation to get up and make some changes! If I keep doing what I have been doing I'll get the same results and I'll look back in another year and be mad at myself for not taking any action.

I want to be:
HEALTHY
NOT WEAR PLUS SIZE CLOTHING
COMFORTABLE NAKED IN FRONT OF A MIRROR
HERE FOR MY KIDS AND GRANDKIDS
BREATHE BETTER
NOT GET SICK WITH SOME "FAT" DISEASE
HAVE A HEALTHY HEART
RUN
RIDE A BIKE COMFORTABLY
BE COMFORTABLE SITTING, SLEEPING, STANDING- ANYTHING!

AND I WILL....

My reasons:
1. To reduce the stress on painful joints
2. To attain a healthy weight for life
3. To be more active in my 2nd 50 years than in my 1st 50 years
4. To keep up with my hubby who has 20 years on me but works out 10 times each month!
5. To be the "kick-ass granny" my grandkids deserve
6. To model health behaviors (especially since I work in healthcare!!)

Simple kindness to one's self and all that lives is the most powerful transformational force of all.

I just hate hearing the stats that we will not have as long of a life as our parents. Every generation, up until ours has lived longer than their parents. Because of all the pollution and processed foods, we are shortening our lives. You would think with all this modern medicine we would live longer, but that is not the case.

My basic reason is to be healthy. There are a lot of medical conditions that run in the family, and I would like to try to avoid as many of them as possible. The only way to do that is by losing weight, working out, and eating fairly healthy.

Its all about ME!!!!

I want to be healthy, active, more energy. I also am an insurance broker, and wonder if my weight caused me to not get clients. I also want to get my hypothyroid under control. eating healthy has enabled me to reduce my medication.

Now, Two years and 100 pounds lighter? This whole loss has caused me to realize that my path has taken me to a more green, sustainable, crunchy place. I realize that there is more to my loss than just losing weight. I feel like most of the foods we eat are the cause of weight gain and other medical problems. The more I learn, the less I know.
