I'm thinking, besides getting healthy and fit, what are some of the positive outcomes of weightloss that motivate you to keep going on those tough days?

What motivates me is:
1) Being able to fit on the rides at the fair
2) Sitting in a booth instead of a table
3) Shopping off of the 'regular' racks and not paying MORE for extra material
4) Looking good in a dress and being able to wear heels without them KILLING my knees and hips!

Rides at the fair is a great one! I'm on that with ya! I would love to be able to tell my son, "Sure I'll take you on the rollercoaster" Instead when he asks I just so no and if he asks why I tell him I'm afraid. WOW....very enlightening!

For me, it is all about the clothes...knowing that I could wear anything hanging in my closet and it would fit.

I'm with you on that one, SJ (not the bungee jumping part!) - I like the Tilt-a-Whirl, the Scrambler and the Himalayan Highland.

I have a box of brand new clothing that is about 2 sizes too small.

I want to be out of 20's sized clothes. To be a 18 again would make me happy!
Fit in a airplane seat better
joints that don't hurt
more energy to play outside with my baby
have more respect from people or not be judged by my size
I want to have that "small" feeling again
be more flexable and thus improve my yoga practice
