I thought it would be fun and inspiring to read what some of you have listed as the advantages of weight loss.
Here are some of mine:
- I will enjoy better health.
- I will have fun shopping (instead of finding it traumatic).
- I will set a good example for my daughters.
- I will be more confident about myself.
- I will look good naked!
I want my healthy lifestyle to be routine so that I can move on to other projects without fear of losing my healthy habits.
I want to take great joy in my new lifestyle.
I want to feel good wearing my new clothes.
I want the CDC to say I'm normal weight.
I want to wake up each day hungry and energetic.
I want to be happy with my weight and my healthy lifestyle on May 12, 2012 (my 50th birthday).
And here's the one that I used to get the first 65 pounds off:
Living an extraordinary life is a subversive act.
I want to get off my blood pressure medication.
I want to live longer than my parents did.
I want to make my health span match my life span.
I want to have more energy.
I want to accomplish an important and difficult feat.
I want to keep my knees, hips, and back free of pain.
I want to look better.
I want to be able to get on the ground while doing photography--and get back up!
I want to be able to work in my garden more often and longer.
