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.
