important reason to the least important reason.

Be as personal as you want!

My reasons:

1) I want to feel comfortable in my own skin

2) I want to be completely healthy.

3) I want to look better.

4) I want to be able to wear whatever I want when I want.

5) I want to have control over my eating patterns.

6) I want to be more active.

7) I want to be able to play soccer, or some other sport with my kids

when I have them.

8) I want to feel better.

9) I want to wear sexy lingerie for my husband (was that too personal? LOL!)

10) I want to lose before I decide to have children because I want to know

what it is like to be skinny before pregnancy.

My reasons are pretty much the same as yours.

1) I want to feel comfortable in my body.

2) I want to be able to keep up with my kids.

3) I want to be able to do fun things (like swim) with my kids. I am too self-concious to do it.)

4) I want to feel sexy for my dh.

5) I have 4 kids and I am thinking of having another.

6) I want to be able to fit into my old clothes and I want to be able to buy new ones. ( I refuse until I lose weight)

1 -- to look better

2 -- to be able to wear a bikini in N.C. this summer

3 -- so I might someday have a waist (I've never known what it's like. It's so sad. I'm shaped like a tree trunk).

4 -- to be healthier.

5 -- to be stronger -- I want to be able to help move furniture and things like that without being sore the next day. Don't you hate when only guys are asked to do things like that?! Hmmm... but then I wouldn't have an excuse to lazily watch men do all the work. Oh well.

6 -- So my husband can pick me up easily. He can pick me up now, but I know it's a struggle. :)

7 -- So, I won't be ashamed to actually tell people how much I weigh and so I can be honest on my driver's license. :)

1). I've just reached the point where I am sick to death of being overweight and out of shape!

2). I want to be able to wear the clothes that I really want to wear and look good in them!

3). No one else in my family is overweight (even close to it), so I want to show them that I can do it!

4). I don't usually stick with goals and this time my goal is to actually stick to my goal.

5). I feel if I can look better and feel better about myself, other parts of my life will fall into place.

My reasons for losing weight include:

- would like to avoid sickness in old age due to excess weight

- want to feel sexier

- want to put less strain on my system overall... I have asthma and sometimes I think the excesss weight makes it worse

to control my insulin levels

to avoid needing surgery for carpal tunnel

to be able to walk without pain or shoe inserts

so I will never need to be handicapped due to weight

so my side of the bed sits higher than dh's

and finally, just maybe to see the twinkle in my husband's eye that says he is impressed.

1) I want to stop being so damn insecure!!

2) I want to be able to dress in fashions I like without being so conscious that I look awful

3) I want to feel more accepted and not feel like an outcast anymore!

4) Ok...I want guys to notice me more, yes, that's sorta awful to say, but it's soo true!

5)I want to be satisfied with myself and not feel the need to compare myself to everyone around me
