I want to be able to live longer, move around easier, have more energy, be around for my family, and remove many of the limits that 100+ pounds puts on my life (like ability to work more physical jobs). Challenges can be inspiring when won! I LOVE that feeling of beating my bad habits. :)

I want the experience the joy of being fit and fast on my bike, I want to be healthy for the sake of my family, friends, and church, and I want to be able to overflow and help others everyday who need a little lift.

"Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come" (1Timothy�4:7-8)

"Jesus answered, 'The most important [commandment] is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength'" (Mark 12:29-30).

What motivates me most is my health. I stayed excessively fat for so long that having lost a great deal of weigh I now have hanging flab and crepe skin. So looking good will not happen again.

I hope young people who are overweight will understand that they must get control of their weight because it will add to so many complications as they age.

On my way to my new normal.

I am not ashamed to say that for me it is 100% about looking good. I want to be as trim and fit as I was in my late 30s, and to be able to wear sexy outfits again. As someone else on here said, I want to look better naked. The "Wow!" factor: I entertain a little fantasy about running into my graduate-school boyfriend and seeing his jaw drop; I want my husband's friends to be jealous of him. Maybe my attitude is immature but you know what? I'm tired of feeling invisible; of society's disdain for women of a certain age and the expectation that we just "Exit Stage Right," so to speak.

I have goals that involve a decent level of fitness and I learned the hard way on my last trekking trip that 40 extra pounds is NOT fun to haul up and over mountains. I don’t want to give up on my hiking dreams, especially since I’m still in my 30’s and otherwise healthy!

My health, primarily. I have a family history of renal failure, arthritis, heart diseases, diabetes, high Blood pressure. The works :|
I lost my mother when I was 18 to a plethora of diseases and not a day goes by that I don't miss her. I'm scared of doing that to my family, most of all my partner. I want to live a long, healthy life.

And of course, there is a more superficial reason. I was 127 lbs around 8 years back and I loved the skin I was in! Shopping for clothes was a breeze, I used to workout for fun (seems like such a bizarre concept now :P), I used to be brimming with confidence, and I used to glow! I want to be in the same place again.

When if feel like I am just existing.....

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

Another good reducing exercise consists in placing both hands against the table edge and pushing back.

To understand that there is no such thing as a diet, however that this is a lifestyle. I love food & I am learning how to love it, but maintain it on a healthy level.

My motivation is to be as healthy as possible. I have many obesity-related comorbidities that I know are shortening my life by about 15 years. The extra time earned back by losing excess weight and getting fit should turn out to be quality time; with full mobility and ability to keep up with my grandchildren; without pain and without most of it being spent in doctors' offices.

There's an old saying: "If wishes were horses, we'd all take a ride". The motivation to lose weight is like a horse, I think. Wish it and then just climb into the saddle and hang on tight, give that horse some encouragement and direct it forward, like you know what you're doing. A slow trot is just fine. The horse can go farther that way and this horse must go a long, long way. We'll get there!

All things are possible.

I'm coming up on retirement, grandchildren. I will finally have time to spend with my grandchildren. I need to be able to know I have done everything in my power to stay as healthy as I can, so I can keep up with them.

I'm 55 and as I age, I'm witnessing a deterioration in my strength, stamina, etc. I've become sedentary now that my kids are grown, and gained quite a lot of weight. So I look to the future, and I see that I cannot continue as I am and manage even self-care by a later age. I'm going to end up in a nursing home, or living with my children, if anything should happen to my husband.

I don't want that! I want to be independent, healthy, active, strong! I've seen women in their 70s with more strength than I have at 55, so it can be done! I have hope that I can do better. I'm so grateful to have SP to help me along the journey to wellness.

What can you do TODAY to bring you ONE STEP CLOSER to your goal? ~SparkPeople
