I'm scared. I'm watching everyone else in my family suffer terribly from health issues that could have been lessened or prevented by different lifestyle choices.

I'd like to fit into more of my clothes, of course, but the real motivation is to live a long and healthy life.

I want to eat healthily and exercise because I want to live and active, full life where I don't have to worry about fitting in a seat or having high cholesterol. I want to be a good role model for my future children and ensure that they have a better relationship with food than I did growing up.

Don't wish for it, work for it!

I've quit many diets in the past, but this is a lifestyle and you can't quit life.

I want to have kids one day (in the not too distant future), but I don't want them to start out unhealthy and I want to be around a long time to take care of them.

My reason is the same as many others, I want to be healthy, and feel well. When I was younger my main thing was to look better, but now, that I have aged & found that it harder to get around with the extra weight.
Now I am concerned with my health. God has blessed me with good health all these years, but I have neglected to do my part & now, I feel like I really need to get busy as I would hate to have failing health because I was just too lazy & fat.
I have alot of weight to lose, but know this time I will not expect my self to have it all done in a short time & try to keep motivated, that is where I always fail. I need help.
Thanks for listening. emoticon

I want to feel good about myself.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

It is not only a gift to myself, but it is for others as well. It is for others as an example and inspiration. It is for others, so that I can more fully, and for longer, be there with them. It is for others, so that I can easier on their eyes! Ha ha.

I want to be healthy now and in the future. I want to go on long hikes with my very fit, active husband. (Right now I am troubled by knee pain when we walk a lot on rough terrain) I want to be a good influence for my beautiful almost-19 year old daughter.

I do not want the massive amounts of illnesses that come along with getting older and not exercising, it's fun, it gives me energy for the day, I am 24 and am constantly being asked if I am 16 or 17 which people tell me to take as a compliment because I will be grateful about it when I am in my 30's.

I need to eat healthy and get in some exercise daily because it makes me feel so much better. Too much fat or sugar and little or no exercise and I don't feel well. Balance and consistency are key components of a healthy life.
