this time, i have higher goals for losing weight...

i want another baby. (maybe). I'm not sure yet. Not even sure if my hubby would go for it. it would be so hard on us.... financially, and with me and school. i have no idea.

but i want to lose the weight anyway, so i might as well do it for this....

cause i'm NOT gaining 30 lbs on top of what i'm already carrying.

:carrot:

Hey there, dcapulet!

Well, there are plenty of good reasons to want to lose weight. And any you can find will help you in your quest! :D

But it sounds like you're not sure if this is a "real reason" or not... ;)

How about, being healthier! Being fit! Being able to do things that you can't do now! How about, buying clothes in regular stores! How about, learning to eat in a healthy way and having a sane relationship with food? All of these are good reasons also.

And if you lose the weight, and then you find you really do want a baby, and your husband agrees, you'll be set to go! :cb: :cb: :cb:

Good luck!

That is my mission exactly! I want to be healthier and leaner anyway... and if other things can happen after, than it's just granola on the yogurt!

thanks. ;)

Hey, dcapulet, maybe you should come and join us on the Exercise Accountability thread in the exercise forum. You won't have JayEll as your personal cheerleader ;), but lots of other people will see what you're doing.

JayEll

Also - since you said "another" baby - more energy and better habits for the one(s) you've got. That is one of my major motivators.

as much as i would love to complete 120 mins per day for the next two days, i'm not going to burn myself out. instead, i'm going to try for 120 over the next two days, and start fresh on Friday.

JayEll
05-30-2007, 09:41 AM
Sounds good! May I suggest you start a new thread on Friday, for the new month? Sometimes 3FC has to close threads that go too long because of space limitations. :)
