~ I can feel good and have more energy

~ to be healthier

~ to have a better body image. (I know I need to love myself no matter what, but I have trouble with body image at this weight)

~ To be an example to friends and family and hoping to inspire them

~ I can wear clothes other than sweat pants and t-shirts!

I CAN...I WILL...I AM!

Yes better sex partner!!! I wholeheartedly agree with that ... Although no boyfriend right now ... Oh well, minor detail. More power to you ladies! You vixens! :)

I want to lose weight so that I can be a better coach, and actually march a DCA drum corps next summer to make myself that way.

I want to lose weight so that when I go on the band trips with my staff and the kids I coach, I can fit into the rides and not feel embarrassed or worried that I won't fit or that I'll look stupid.

I want to lose weight so that I can feel more confident and more alluring in my own skin than I have in the past.

I want to lose weight so that when the time comes, I can have children. :)

I started gaining weight when I was about 10, as my family started to crumble. I thought I was gaining too much weight but thought if that was the case someone would say something. Turns out they wouldn't it wasn't until I was 21 and 240lbs that someone expressed concern. I want to lose weight to find out who I really am. I've always accepted what others have thought for and about me. It's time to shed all that nonsense and see what I can do, its taken me too long to realize, too many people that I was/am close to don't always have my best interest at heart.

I want to lose weight so that...

I can live a nice long life to watch my children grow up and have their own children.
I can have no reservations with my husband.
I can play basketball and volleyball WELL again.
I can run a marathon.
I can walk into a store and pick out whatever I want to wear.
I can wear my wedding set.
I never have to see 200 on the scale ever again, even pregnant.
I can set an example for my children so they know how to live a healthy lifestyle.
I never have to see the infamous "inner tube" ever again.
I can breathe better.
I can be proud of my weight and pant/dress size.

Mostly, so I can feel good!

"And be not weary in well doing, for in due season, ye shall reap if ye faint not. " - Galatians 6:9

* I can go shopping for clothes & find things that fit that I actually LIKE.
* I no longer have to say 'I'm fat'. I want to look fierce & know that I AM. ;)
* I don't feel 500x bigger than my boyfriend.
* I am no longer self-conscious when I'm about in public.
* I am more confident when it comes to taking pictures/having my picture taken.
* I can be HEALTHY & not ashamed or scared when I go to the Doctor's office.
* I can live a normal life.

I want to lose weight so that...
- I can ride amusement park rides with my sons
- I can shop other than the plus sizes
- I can buy a bra at Victoria's Secret
- I can take my dog for a jog
- I can be the hot wife when I take goodies to the spoiled men at my hubby's work emoticon

Thinking of these has me thinking of the things I can do since I have lost weight. Off to start a new thread.

April - 35yr 5'10" mom of two teen boys :)

331.2 lbs 02.21.11 (start) size 28W-30W jeans
230.0 lbs 07.30.12 (current) size 16W

Progress 101.2 lbs - 30.6% of my original weight ;)
Starting BMI 47.52 extreme obesity .... Current BMI 33.1 "simply" obese - much closer to overweight than extreme obese now!!

I want to lose weigh so that I can look my age, so that I can go places and fit into somethings that I can't, so that I can prove to myself I can do it if I set my mind to it, and I wanna get healthier as a way to remember my nannie, SO that I can look in a mirror and smile at myself cause I dont look like a cow and that maybe someday I can buy a tshirt from a place that is wal-mart and dont have to look at the PLUS sides....(I was looking at the tshirts at the gym and the biggest I saw as a XL im like a 2X or 3X.....I wanna be like a L....LOL this is coming from a person who hates to shop even for someone else, but, I like the clothes I cant fit into and saying what side my clothes are is embarrassing...

1. I'm tired of using my weight as an excuse not to do things physical
2. I don't want to shop in the Plus size department anymore
3. I want to be able to sit in a booth and not have my boobs rest on the table
4. I want to look and be healthy
5. I want to get off some of the meds I'm on
6. I want my parents to quit telling me "Just put your mind to it" to lose weight
7. I dont want to be the fat mother of the bride.

I can wear cute dresses.
I can get out of the Plus Size section and all the boring, ugly clothes they offer.
I can wear a swimsuit and not have to wear board shorts because of embarrassment.
I can be judged for my intelligence and personality rather than my weight.
I feel more confident.
I can encourage my parents that it is possible.
I can love my body for the first time in my entire life.

I want to lose weight so that:
1) I can fit into my Halloween costume that I bought after last Halloween (super cheap!)
2) I can hike the Appalachian Trail before I turn 35.
3) I can find cute clothes!!! And shopping will be easier!
4) I can have better sex! :) hehe

I'm aiming to get in shape enough to be able to hike to Havasu Falls, AZ by the summer of 2015! I hope to become a certified personal trainer and/or a nutrition coach someday!
