Default A daily reason

I am new to LAWL. I was reading some posts and heard some people are needing to be back in the frame of mind they were when they joined. I was thinking...what if I started a place for each of us to write a daily thought of why we started and need to continue this journey for success. We each have our own reason. Of course health, but maybe more than that. A place where we could come for inspiration from each other or even what we had written in the past that we could reread. So I will start. Hope others will join in. I am tired of the fat hanging from my belly!!

My daily reason--today--is vanity--I just want to look good and stop being so self conscious of what others may be thinking!

I joined so I can look and feel better. I want to buy smaller clothes, and buy off the rack and feel good about what I'm wearing.

I joined because I hated the way I looked and felt. Not to mention shopping for clothes became a dreadful task, rather than enjoyment.

I joined because I was out of control with my eating habits, my body ached, my clothes were tight and I looked like a blob. I knew WHAT to do, but had no self motivation. LAWL helped me get started, but I'm sticking this out for the long term!

Okay, I guess it's my turn.
Honestly, it was about saving my life! I'm healthy, all vitals are great, bp is great, cholesterol is great, etc., etc., etc. BUT I know it will not always be that way. DH has had three aquaintances our age drop dead in the last 4 weeks! They weren't overweight, they smoked, had other problems, but come on. We felt like God was giving us a wake up call and we decided it was time to "wake up". I want to live to see my children married and see my grandbabies! I'll be a terrific grandma! Okay. That's it for me.

I want to feel like my DH is proud to say I am his wife, even though he does and says it...I want every one else to tell him how great I look.

I also want to look on the outside like I feel on the inside

I refuse to be fat and 40

My daughter came home upset because a girl at school told her that I was fatter than her mom. I grew up with a mom who was 100 pounds overweight so I was always self conscious about that. It was a huge wake up call.

-I was tired of weighing more than my husband.
-size 16's were too tight on me
-I was starting to be embarrassed to go out and be social
-I was always sizing myself up to all the other women in the room and I was usually the biggest.

All of my reasons are purely vain-sorry

- I am wasting my young teenage years on being fat.

- I want to be able to wear a tight shirt and have no belly hanging out

- I want to be more flexible and to be able to jump and run around without feeling self - concisous (sp?)

- I want to start a healthy lifestyle now, so that when I get older I will be more fit and live a longer and healthier life.

- I don't want to be the "fattest chick in the group" anymore.

- I want to turn men's heads.
