These are GREAT responses. It's great to get our minds working and get us thinking about these things... cause it begins on the inside to start any changes. If you truly want the change, look inside yourself. Ask yourself questions, try to find answers within yourself. Once you start to deal with the emotional part of the lifestyle changes, then you will be better able to start seeing results. And I know emoticon ALL of you can!

Funny how someone can be this big and be invisible! I am tired of going unnoticed and treated like a second class citizen. I have been on both sides of the fence and fat people are not treated the same...at all! I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. For those who don't know, I had ovarian cancer and began this weight gain during chemo. So, it's not like I woke up one day and decided to eat bon bons. Now, 5 yrs later, I am a survivor. I want to give glory to God for saving me and I want to LIVE again. Eat to live, not live to eat! My feet, ankles, knees...hurt! Tired of not being able to reach my feet - that's ridiculous! I am single. I do not feel good enough about myself to flirt and look at anyone else. I want to fit in my cute shoes again. And my clothes. I refuse to buy any cute fat clothes. Like I'm punishing myself. And I'm tired of that too. Diabetes runs in the family. I don't want it. I dont' want a heart attack or stroke. I love to dance, but won't do that now either. Like I've stopped living. I'm just tired tired tired. Sorry guys - guess I needed to vent. Thanks for the question Kris!

I have always struggled with my weight. I used my pregnancy as a "good excuse" to pretty much throw caution to the wind. I gained a total of 62 pounds during my pregnancy..ugh! I've felt like crap for an entire year (during pregnancy and now afterwards), and I'm SO tired of feeling that way. I miss having the energy I did prior to pregnancy. I miss my cute clothes. I miss weighing less than my husband!!! *LOL* I want to be active, feel excited about activity, not be so food centered, and be a great example to my daughters. My oldest is struggling as she is overweight, and its certainly in my youngest's genes to struggle with weight as well. So, I have soooo many reasons... I'm just glad I've finally headed down the right road again!

Want to look and feel better about myself. Plus I too am also pre-diabetic. And if I don't do anything about at least trying to control my weight issues it could really get out of control.

I have tried to do this so many many many times before and sometimes I would be a little successful but then it would all come back on plus a little more.

What got me really fueled to make this happen for me though was a trip to my dr. He told me I was pre-diabetic and that I had arthritis in my knees and that my ankles weren't looking any better. I had a flash then of my Great Auntie Grace (my grandma's sister) who I adore but who can barely get around because of her weight and her diabetes is not in control at all and she's got bruises and all sorts of uglies all over. She is always tired and wheezing and miserable looking. I love my Auntie Grace but I do not want to be my Auntie Grace. That caused me to change.

So within the next week of my drs appointment I joined the gym, and started back up with Spark People and here I am today!

I was tired of seeing the rolls multiplying in the mirror when I got out of the shower. I took a look at my wedding picture(on my sparkpage) and realized I really felt good at that time of my life. I got way to comfortable in marriage and I want to live, not waste away my life. I feel so good now, my self esteem is growing every day and I really look forward to LIVING the life I have left to live.

Same here a lot of it... I want to feel good about myself, I want to have good health, not bad. And the only one who can fix it is me, along with the help and support of God, family & friends. But I have to WANT it, I have to give it my ALL!

Mostly vanity. I'd quote health problems, I'm in perfect health. I don't like the girl I see in the mirror. It's just a reminder for how I let unhappiness rule my life for far too long.
