Seeing the health of my mother deteriorate
Family history of osteoporosis before 50 years old

Wanting to look as good as I did before having children
Wanting to stall the effects of age

My dogs - they wont let me sleep in!

The prospect of not having to be on bp meds.
The promise of needing smaller clothes instead of bigger ones.
Being a good example to my kids.
Wanting to be around to be a grandma FAR into the future.
Wearing heels and walking in them without looking like a tool.
My knees not rubbing together when I walk.
The possibility that I won't snore at night when I lose the weight.
Fitting into seats without them pinching the hell out of my hips.
Being more flexible.
Not being self-conscious when I go out in public.
Not being self-conscious around in-laws.

Oh, the list goes on and on.

I guess I'd have to say my dog gets me out the door for walks, even when I don't want to do them

The reminder of how far I have come and where I want to go. Most days if I am really down and ready to quit either my son or daughter will kick me in the but and remind me to pick myself up and get moving. Mostly just believing in myself and what I can do.

The reality of knowing where I was, how I felt, where I was going . . . quickly!

The reality of knowing the condition of many of my siblings, their appearance, their medical consequences and prospects.

Remembering how long it had been since I felt good and could manage a thorough work-out.

The buzz of life after nice, complete work-outs!
