For me it would be for health concerns first and then how I feel. And this is for me--I want to be around a long time!

If you could have just ONE of the following advantages in your weight-loss journey, which would you choose?

A personal trainer
A personal healthy chef
A motivational life coach
A fridge that constantly refills itself with healthy food
One extra hour per day for exercise
A fully-stocked home gym
Other (Share it in the comments!)

For me, I would choose a fridge that constantly refills itself with healthy food!

Does your weight affect how happy you are in life?


Yes
Somewhat
No

Years ago, before I lost weight, I would have said no, but now I would say yes. (but I do realize that right now my unhappy times come from the loss of my Chuck~~ but as the days go by, I AM getting better.)

Thank goodness my back surgery relieved my chronic pain. I do take medicine DAILY to help with the cluster headache/migraines I suffer from though.

I have lots of impatiens growing, but for food, only a basil plant growing in a crack in our driveway. A seed dropped from my neighbor's plant.

Where does your garden grow?

In the ground
Raised beds
In pots and/or containers
A place not listed here
I don't have a garden

I don't have a garden--the grocery store is my garden!

My doctor has told me not to do lunges because of my knees. My trainer has shown me how to do a modified squat that is much easier to do.

I haven't lost any weight in many years, but my triglycerides were too high and with the last blood test, they were in the normal range. I've been trying to eat better by reducing sugar. BTW the doctor is not concerned with my weight. I guess I'm where I should be even though I score high on the BMI. I'm in the normal range for everything else.
