What are YOUR reasons why you want to lose weight? Please share.
Disenchantment with my former life of morbid obesity wasn't strong enough to make me want to change before I made up my mind. Hating myself was unhealthy for me but I was stuck.
I'm not really what sure exactly what was the 'tipping point of the scale' other than being sick and tired of being sick and tired. All that I do know is I DID make up my mind to make a permanent lifestyle change and am doing all I can to make that happen.
Here are reasons WHY I want to change want to reach and maintain my goal weight :
