S/C/G: check the ticker :)

my reasons are pretty typical I think:

1) I noticed there aren't many super fat AND old people around - I want to get old one day!!!

2) Now that I'm 40, I think my luck is going to run out eventually - I can't be THIS fat and still have good blood pressure, good cholesterol numbers, and general good health (believe me, it kind of ticks off my doctor LOL) forever, so I figure I better help genetics and get some of the tonnage off of me before something serious happens to me

3) always fun to look better I know I've ruined my body beyond repair (non surgical repair anyway) but as long as I look good in clothing, that'll do. My DH said he's willing to live with anything as long as I'm around to live WITH for a long long long time (how much do we love him???!?)

Health, quality of life, for my family...
Really I just want to be able to do things that I couldn't before.
Appearance is really the last concern, but it is a nice side benefit.

For me it was always vanity, but now i think it is for health reasons also:
1. To be healthy, I want kids someday and want to be a " blooming" pregnant lady not a sweating one.
2. To enjoy shopping again
3. To have the confidence to walk around naked
4. To be able to go horse riding again without fear of breaking the horse
5. To just be normal!! Ive always been overweight since I can ever remember.

For me its health reasons, I had high B.P. before I started dieting and I dont now. I could hardly walk at all and I can walk for hours now............. the list is endless AND looking better is a bonus too!

#4 made me almost choke on my OJ .... i laughed that hard i always had a concern over the same thing .... i dont go horse back riding because im afraid .... for the horse my family thinks im a nut job seriously .... its a concern i wouldent want to carry around a 200 pound person for 5 minutes much less a half hour !

but my reasons i guess are

1. to get evreyone ( parents , doctor , husband ) off my back
2. the health benefits
3. to enjoy shopping again im the only girl i know who hates shopping ALL CANNOT BE RIGHT IN THE WORLD !!
4. to enjoy swimming and going to the beach again with out the fear of small children thinking theres a beached whale on the sand
5. to enjoy going out at all ... period , i hate avoiding certain places and people just because of my weight !
6. for my own personal satisfaction
7. i hate the phrase .... "omg what happned to you ?!?" people love saying that when they havent seen me for a while i bumped into some old friends from HS and they didnt even reconize me
8. to not be afraid that im too heavy to :
sit on a swing
go on a ride
be in a canoe
get a piggy back ride
sit on certain chairs
and the list goes on really
and last but not least ... i hate being "the big girl " i stick out like a sore thumb amongst my friends im the tallest by like half a foot and i have to be the biggest ? lets slap a clown nose and some big shoes on me now why dont we?

#1 - I want to enjoy my retirement years...not sitting on my butt in front of the TV. I want to travel and, hopefully, play with my grankids.

#2 - I want more energy and less achey knees. I don't want to feel tired all of the time.

#3 - I want to wear pretty clothes that look good on my body.

1. I want to be a great role model for my son and inspire my husband to get healthy.

2. I don't want to be limited by my weight. I want to run, jump, lift weights, do chin-ups, push-ups, do a triathlon - anything I please physically. I want to be powerful. This would be complete freedom to me after being trapped in fat for some years. I started off just wanting to be skinny, now I want the physique of that lady in the old movie Terminator. Really.

3. Of course I want to be a beautiful, not obese hot mama! My son is starting school this fall.

4. Clothes. Yeah. I love clothes. I miss the feeling of tight abs and hip hugging jeans. I want enough clothes that I love to explode 5 closets! I want to feel sexy in my clothes.

but NOW
I want to feel beautiful
I want to wear clothing and underwear that isnt plus size.
I want to manage MS symptoms and be a healthy example to my morbidly obese family.

I've got lots of reasons - clothes, appearance, comfort, airline trips, etc - but the main one, the one I always come back to is this:

I am 32 years old, and I have 50 or more years left to live. They can be relatively healthy ones, or they can be a slow, painful slide into illness and mobility problems. As much as it is in my power to do so, I am going to make sure that they are healthy ones.

I'm doing this for myself now, but I'm also doing it for my future self. There have been times when I've looked back on my life, cursing myself, and asked, "Why didn't I make the change then? What was I thinking? My life would be so much easier now if I had made the change earlier." My future self is going to look back and be glad of the decisions I make right now. That's the life I want to live.

Lisa

1) I want to go to the beach and want everyone to stare because I'm hot! not because I look like a beached whale.
2) I am sick of shopping in the plus size section. I mean, I love Lane Bryant clothes, but I don't wanna have to shop there anymore.
3) I want to run, jump, play, without getting winded.
4) I want to go on hikes in the forest. I use to love this when I was a kid.
5) I want my husband to not be able to keep his hands off me!!!
6) I don't want to be the fat friend.
7) I don't want people from high school to recongnize me....lol! I want to have to say hey...and it takes them a minute to realize who you are!!!
