I want to lose weight so....
I don't need another knee surgery (I've had 3) in the near future
I don't hate looking at myself in the mirror
I can buy pretty clothes that don't look like tents and cost double the price
I can play with my boys more
I can feel sexy for my husband
I don't think that everyone is thinking "wow she's really gotten big" every time I walk into a room
I don't spend the entire summer in the house in the AC because I'm so hot
I don't equate having a good time with "I have to eat junk food"
I can live to a cranky old age and enjoy retirement in the South with my hubby :)

I want to lose weight....
1) because i love myself, so i should start treating myself right.
2) so that i might enjoy shopping a little more
3) because i want to accomplish my physical goals (run a 10K, swim a mile under 20 minutes (so hard for me!!), hike the grand canyon...)
4) because i'm so tired from having been overweight since i was 5 and always feeling insecure about it.

I CAN lose weight because...
1) I have the strength and determination to do so
2) I am in a stable financial situation (finally!)
3) I have the strength and determination to do so
4) I know it's what I really want - above many things. and as they say, "don't give up something you want in the future for what you want now." I will not have a bajillion cookies now, because i want to lose 70lbs!

whooooo I'm supergirl! i can do this. we all can!

I want to lose weight so that -
-I'm not judged in the workplace by my body
-when I run into people I haven't seen in a long time they can say "You look great!" and really mean it.
-so I can play volleyball on the sand pits near my house with my friends
-so I can finally feel comfortable going on a beach vacation or swimming or hot tubbing
-so I feel fit enough to ride a bike to work everyday (if I did that now I'd be sweat-soaked and huffing and puffing when I got to the office! Not good!)
-So I can stop being a wingwoman and just be the woman (the one people want to meet, not the one who gets asked questions about her friends).
-So I can spend a summer not wearing cardigans over my tank tops and wishing about wearing shorts and sweating my ass off!
-And totally frivolous and silly, but I never change my facebook picture because I'm ashamed of how I look in all my recent pics. It'd be great to have options!

I can be the me I am supposed to be.. Not the one who lets everyone else have fun and I sit and watch. I can try new activities and not let my weight weigh me down. Keep diabetes at bay. Shop in "any" store and not have to just search out the plus sized stores.. Keep healthy so I am here for my kids longer then they may need me and keep turning my fiances head, cause I will look as sexy as he makes me feel. :)

I want to lose weight so my knees don't hurt each time I get up.
