Default My Reasons for Losing Weight

We all have our excuses for why we are not doing it. Let's wipe them out with our reasons we need or want to succeed. Please add your own.

1. I need to lose weight if I want to enjoy all the activities I love into my senior years.

Great idea Mary!!

1. I want to lose the weight I gained when I quite smoking 15 years ago once and for all!
2. I want/need to live a long healthy life and feel comfortable in my own skin at the same time.
3. I want/need to set a good example for my children.

What a great idea! This is so much more positive than listing your excuses.

My reasons for wanting to lose weight:

Control my blood sugar
Control my blood pressure
Increase my energy
Improve my breathing
Fit into my smaller clothes
Get thinner than Robin. (the name changes regularly! LOL)

Jenai - truth be told I wanna be a Hot Gramma - however the physical benefits seem to be increasing in importance with age. With success we will reach both goals.
