    My husband & I were 8th grade sweethearts but fell out of touch for 32 years. 6-1/2 years ago we reunited and married 4 years ago. When we got back in touch I was my ideal weight/size but that same year many terrible things happened in my life and I've filled myself with food to feel "full & complete", but all it did was make me feel miserable and cause me to gain 65 lbs! I know my husband loves me unconditionally, but I'd like to loose weight so that he can hold that slim, shapely, sexy, happy and confident woman again.

    My honest reason for losing weight is to feel better. My arthritis doesn't like carrying around 60 extra lbs.... And I want to live longer..:bigsmile:

    So many honest reasons, some vain, some regarding health.

    The Vain Reasons:
    I'm tired of being fat, insecure and feeling uncomfortable in my own skin.
    I'm tired of hating clothes shopping and want to feel comfortable in the summer in a swimsuit or on the beach.
    I want to LOVE shopping for a new dress or jeans!
    My sister is about 60lbs heavier than I was when I started and had such a hard time finding a wedding dress that she loved, fit well and she felt comfortable in. She finally found a beautiful dress, but really took some joy out of the experience for her and I don't want to have that happen when I get married.
    I want to feel comfortable having sex in the morning or with the lights on! I know my BF would enjoy that, lol!

    For Health Reasons:
    My mom died from lifelong Type I Diabetes (since age 4, she passed at age 41) and my sister was diagnosed 2 years ago with Type II. I'm terrified of continuing that "family tradition".
    High blood pressure runs in my family and recently mine was borderline too high. I want to stop that right now.
    I have a permanent knee injury with chronic pain and I'm hoping the weight loss with lessen stress on my knee and help reduce the pain I have!

    First of all, my heart rate is too high and slightly irregular. I get worse when I am not active and I weigh more. I don't want to have a stroke or something so I need to get fit.
    Also, I have been fit before and I know how it feels compared to being the couch potato I am (well, I was 20 days ago, before starting here). I prefer fit than uncomfortable.
    Then it's because I need to boost my self esteem and be OK in my own skin. I know that this can happen at every weight, shape and size, but my mind alone isn't strong enough to get to that level, I need my body to be in a good shape.
    Third, I am scared of feeling old!

    To be sexy honestly, I want to be in a relationship where the guy I'm with can show me off and every other guy in the room is jealous.

    I want to feel healthy at my age..........period. I'm 43, and most of the people i know that are my age or older, just don't take care of themselves, and have health issues as a result. Not saying i'm Mr. Olympia, but i'm very conscious of my health, and want to be around for my kids.

    Anger and shame. Last doctor visit, first words of his mouth when he picked up my chart were "You need to lose weight are you even exercising?" He hadn't even said hello. I told him not so much I have no energy. He told me do it anyway in tone of complete disgust. I was shocked, angry and hurt by the whole experience.

    Overly honest coming right at yah:
    - I want to be sexy.. In highschool, I felt sexy.. college not so much..
    - I want to wow myself when I look in the mirror
    - I want to get my mother off my back.. She has been on it all my life about my weight
    - SEX: sex was way better at a smaller size.. WAY WAY WAY WAY better..
    - I miss being a gymnast and cheerleader. (More so miss feeling how I did then) ... I was overly flexible.. splits.. jumps.. everything.. I can still do splits at this size, but it isn't the same.

    Health, honestly. I always wanted to lose weight for looks, but I never actually did it until I was afraid I might die.
