I just found out today that I have arthritis in my left hip at age 34 due to my weight.

My number 1 reason is to be more mobile. A year ago I was hobbling around and living on hands full of Motrin. I started working out 3 times a week last April and the exercise has helped me tremendously. I don't hurt anymore and I can move quickly after standing up instead of walking bent at the knees and back until I loosen up. My posture is better and I am stronger. I didn't lose any weight, because I was still eating horribly. But now I am ready to tackle next.

Number 2: I got blood work that showed I have a fatty liver. I have had this for a while, but this time it is serious enough they want me to see someone about it. I am going to take six months to DO something about it. If I have another bad test then I will see someone. But I think I can fix it with proper diet and weight loss instead of the medication that they will want to use.

Number 3: I am tired of shopping in the Plus Size part of the clothing store. I intend to change that forever.

Well, we're not having any other babies so there's that. I can make it all the way, finally. Before son #4 I got to within 15 pounds of my goal weight. I gained a lot (all of what I had lost plus more) during that pregnancy and am now ready to get it off. I don't want my boys to ever be embarrassed by my appearance. I want them to know I make good health and exercise a priority.

Of course, I have superficial reasons as well. My husband's 20 year high school reunion is in July, I want to wear cute clothes again, stuff like that. It clicked for me back at the end of October and I'm not turning back!

I have to chase after two little ones all day. I want to have more energy for that. I also have a family history of diabetes and high blood pressure.

Those are good reasons that is for sure. I got to take a pill for blood pressure - be nice to loose it.

I could just copy DANILYNNG's reasons. I also have long since been diagnosed with Hi BP so it is inportant that I do whatever I can to avoid heart disease. My father died @ 58 and I have lost my only sister and 1 brother because of heart disease.

Family health history that scares the living bejeezus out of me... losing weight and getting fit will help tremendously in my efforts to avoid heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.
