My grandmother recently found out that she has prediabetes and my Dr told me that type II diabetes has a genetic component to it so I am trying to avoid that problem.

For me, it really is about the health issues.

I wish I could say that it was health related, but for me, it is all abouit how I look.

SJ - you are a lot of things - "shallow" is not one of them.

I wanna be healthier. I wanna be happy with who I am. Most of all I want to be at a healthier weight to start ttc a child with DH again. I know at this weight I wouldn't be able to be the kind of mother a child needs and deserves!

My greatest motivation is the "You may now kiss the bride" picture from my wedding a year and a half ago. DH has his arms around me and, not only seeing the comparison in size between the two of us, but the fact that his arms barely fit around my lower back make me want to cry every time. I don't want to be that person anymore. He is only 2 inches taller than me but weighs 100 lbs less. I really don't like wondering what strangers think when they see us together. All I can imagine they're thinking is "Why is he with HER?"
