#2 I want to be able to wear whatever clothes I want, whether it be slobby or dressed to the nines.
#3 I want to be slim, fit and trim, I love the way my body looks when its muscled and toned!
#4 I want to be able to smile without worrying about my double chin.
#5 I want to be free of the fat prison that I have locked myself in!

Well, it's only Wednesday night, but I'll answer anyway.

1) Health is the foremost reason.

2) I don't want to be the fattest person in a room.

3) I can save money by shopping in regular stores rather than specialty stores.

4) When I'm naked in the shower at the "Y," I don't want a lot of jiggly flesh showing.

5) I want to look really great as the mother of the bride.

Okay, let's see...

-I want to be able to walk down a flight of stairs like the young person I am (43) instead of experiencing pain with every step.

-I want something other than my next meal to be the subject of my daydreams.

-I want to be able to shop in the 'regular' size department. What I really hate is that stores often put the plus size clothing right next to the maternity section, and that bothers me somehow. Not to mention that there's such a better selection in smaller sizes.

-I'd like to wear a bathing suit comfortably, without worrying about rolls, dimples and bulges.

-I'd like to have improved breathing and blood pressure.

1. I want to feel better and know that I am healthy.
2. I want to set an example of good habits for my 2 1/2 year old son. I don't want him to have the same problems I did being a fat child.
3. I want to feel confident when someone is taking a picture of me instead of scared of how fat I am going to look.
4. I want to be able to go to any store and buy cute, stylish clothes that are sized in single digits.
5. I don't want to end up being a fat old lady who needs people to help turn over because my poor old body can't schlep my fat around anymore.

1. I want to wear all the funky clothes I love but can't fit into (even though people will roll their eyes and say "Isn't she too old to be wearing THAT??)

2. I want to be fit, strong and healthy enough to climb the CN Tower again this October - in less than 30 minutes this time

3. I want to go to my 30th high school reunion next year and wear my old cheerleader outfit (okay, that ain't never gonna happen - I was 25lbs. less then than what my goal weight is now!)

4. I want the tops of my thighs to stop rubbing together and chaffing so that I won't have to spend most of the summer walking bow-legged

5. I want the self-esteem, confidence and pride that comes from accomplishing a major life goal

And for good measure...

6. I want to have wild and crazy sex with the lights on (and allow him to open his eyes)

Here goes!

1) I want to be fit and healthy and have lots of energy and vitality.

2) I want to get married in a size 10/12 (UK) wedding dress. (SOON!)

3) I want to be slim and fit enough to have a healthy pregnancy and raise my children. (ALSO SOON!)

4) I want to look and feel my age (31) and have fun like people my age do!

5) I want to be able to go into any shop I want and buy cool and funky clothes - and dress like the person I want to be, rather than being limited by only what fits me.

I have a visualization that has been running through my mind for years. I'll put it as number 1, the rest are important, but this one is my motovation.

1) I want to go the the beach in *HOT* bathingsuit, and see my husbands eyes pop, and see him look around to see if any other men are staring at me.
2) And they are!
3) I want to live my life, not just endure it.
4) I want to feel sexy and confidant.
5) I want to be healthy, feel healthy, look healthy, and set a healthy example for my Abby.

LOL SAPF--I was beginning to think I may be the only one hearing that flapping noise when I jog. It can sure be a motivator though
