Default Why do you whant to lose weight?

Maybe this is good question? Write it here, and correct it after if you think that is needed.

My friend told me that she wrote a list and put it on her wordrobe to look at it every morning. She said it helped to keep her motivated.

I whant to loose it, ok, I will be brutal, because:

1. I whant be ashamed to take my clothes of in front of a man
2. I will be lighter and I will not ruin every shoes I have in a record period!
3. I will be able to have nicer clothes and shoes, not baggy ones
4. I will not look like I am 50 years old
5. I will not look worse than my mother
6. I will not feel deferent and as everybody looking at me
7. I will not be afriad that I will lose my job because of looks
8. I could change my job - or more easier?
9. It will be more easy to deal with my emotional problems
10. I colud wear those nice, pinky shirts, not the large, dark ones
11. I will not be afriad to look myself in the miror
12. I will allways say yas when friends asks me out
13. I will not stay at home for New Years because I dont have anything nice to wear ...

oh, how many things, and I just started Hope this will keep me motivated...

What are your reasons?

Reasons to lose weight!:

1) Revenge for all of those who always thought i would be the big fat girl forever!
2) When i go to a club i wanna bring a pointy stick to poke all the drooling men away from me with!
3) I definately want to look better than my mom...really its just not right if u look worse!
4) If i get in a fight with sum1 i can be assured that their only comeback won't be "At least i dont have more rolls than a bakery!"
5) To prove to myself that im not worthless and i can do anything! Believing in yourself should always be the most important reason!

Well thats all for now but im sure i can think of at least 20 more!
We must eat to live, not live to eat!!

I want to fit on ONE seat on the darn skytrain! Which could possibly never happen, like I realize I live in Vancouver, but that doesn't mean everyone has asian bums! This is a sore spot for me, cuz every day on my commute to work, I sit there and think about how I just don't fit in the darn seats! Grrr!


November Goal: 2.5 down / 2.5 to go!

hmm lots of good reasons I never thought of.

1) I want to stop gaining 13 lbs every year
2) I'm tired of feeling tired
3) I want to be able to buy normal clothes
4) I want to be healthier
5) I want to weigh less than my mother (never thought of that but it sounds good!)
6) I want my hospital gown to close in the back
7) I'd like to not worry about fitting in places like rides

1. I want to be healthy
2. I don't want to be told I have a disease (diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.) because I'm overweight.
3. I don't want my children to be ashamed to say I'm their mom because I'm fat.

Those are my 3 motivating factors of why I want to lose the weight.
I do have another list of stuff I'm looking forward to as a healthier, skinnier person but they aren't necessarily the reasons for me to lose the weight.
1. Going on amusement park rides and not worrying about fitting
2. Shopping in any store I want and knowing that something in their will fit me besides shoes or purses.
3. Having a regular towel wrap around me.
4. Wearing a bikini out in public and enjoying all the stares because I'm "One hot Mamma" and not one fat mamma.
5. Being proud of the fact that I can lose almost 150 pounds and keep it off

Halloween Goal

As I'm on the wrong side of 50, the biggest reason for me is health. I don't want to get diabetes like my Dad, and I want to go into old age active and healthy.

For those of you who listed "want to get pregnant," just keep posting here and I'm sure you'll end up pregnant!

~ I will be 50 this summer, and I hope to go into the second half of life and be in better shape than I have been so far (have spent all my adult life overweight-it has just kept going up and up and up year after year).

~ I want to feel better ~ tired of aching all the time.

~ I want to improve my health (don't want to have a stroke or something and be a burden on my kids and family).

~ I would like to be able to fit into the clothes I see that I like.

~ I want to feel good about myself.

~ I don't want to be an embarasment to my kids and little grandson.

There are probably more ~ all I can think of right now.
One day at a time ~ never giving up!!

Nobody can force you to have a certain attitude. But life will go so much better if you will simply choose to be positive. When you wake up, choose to be happy. Choose to be grateful for the day. (Joel Osteen)

Great idea! My reasons for losing weight:

1. To live a long life so I'll be here for my son.
2. To be energetic enough to play with my son.
3. To set a good example for my son.
4. So my son won't be embarassed about me. I don't want to be "the fat mom."
5. To feel sexy (although I already do )
6. So it's easier to buy clothes.
7.To be healthy.
