    I gained weight pretty quickly in the past and as a result, could really feel the weight slowing me down. It was a strange feeling to me.

    I started losing weight partly because of that feeling. I began lifting at the same time. Now I'm back down to my normal weight and it feels like I can move freely. It's hard to explain I guess! It's like my legs don't weigh me down anymore and my arms don't chaff from simply moving them when walking.

    Be healthier / feel more confident in my own skin
    Make the 90% of my closet fit again (including my 'dressy' work clothes that I'm going to be needing soon) and get rid of my "bigger" clothes FOR GOOD!
    Run 5K's and improve times as I go

    besides looking better, just to feel more confident about my body in general. Oh, and to not get rejected so often when I go on a first date. LOL

    I want to lose weight so I'll breathe easier and live longer for my husband and son.

    Health reasons (was pre-diabetic), see my daughter grow up (and be active with her), see my grand kids grow up also.

    Health reasons. Specifically, I was surprised by tumor that grew remarkably quickly (I think the term "explosive growth" was used once or twice). By being pretty healthy when that happened, I was able to endure the fight better.

    So I try to keep my weight in check in order to improve my odds in case life has any other surprises in store for me.

    Because it's too tight!

    or because even though I'm overweight, and my doctor says I'm perfectly healthy I know that won't last being overweight, whether it be from joints giving out or something worse. That is one of my pet peeves from my fellow overweight people who think that because their blood work, and cholesterol are good that the extra weight isn't going to eventually affect them.

    I used to think I'm doing this for my family, but I realize I have to be at my best for me, so I can be my best for my family. So my reason for wanting to loose weight is to be healthy for "ME" because I'm worth it.

    My joints. They hurt if I weigh more than 12 stone, and having pronated feet means my knees and hips suffer from walking anyway - the extra weight is just piling on the stress, and yet I love walking and want to be doing it into my old age. I've injured my knee and the frustration of having limited mobility while it recovers just makes me more determined to lose this weight and make the most of every step.

    Plus I have nice clothes that don't fit me and I want to wear them again.

    Health, comfort/quality of life, better sleep, clothes fitting better/easier to buy clothes.
