I want to lose weight because...

I do because I want to be/feel healthier and be able to fit into smaller clothes. I also want to have a more comparable body type with my husband. He's 5'6'' 120lbs, I linger around the 200lb mark at 5'1''.

Why do you want to lose weight?

  • I want to be healthier for my kids and I want to feel better about myself and to feel better in general. I can't remember the last time I felt good. I also want to look better for my husband. I know he loves me the way I am, whatever body style that may be, but I know if I feel good about myself then that's more attractive.

  • I want to be healthier and more able to be a healthy role model for my kids. I want to be able to feel happiness again when I see myself in the mirror instead of failure.

  • I've come a long way. I was a size 20 for years and now I fit in a size 6! I still have problems areas though like my sides (love handles), stomach, upper thighs and upper arms. I want to lose a little more weight, but I mostly want to tone up in my problem areas. I do feel a lot healthier then I did a few years ago when I was heavier.
