So many reasons. To be healthier, prevent diabetes, for my kids, to be able to wear nice clothes, to get some confidence back which is the first step for me to get a job after staying home for years and getting out of a horrible marriage.

Short term goal...being under 200 pounds.

Great question. I'm back on Spark after being gone for a couple/few years...weighing the most I've ever weighed. When I first joined, my initial motivation was to set an example for my kids. I think that's still part of it, but I feel I'm coming around to making more about me. I need to get healthier, make healthier choices, excercise for my body to keep it moving as I continue to age. I appreciate this question because it really is making me think about my motivation and choices.

Resolute: To eat healthy, log daily, drink my water, and give my body 7-hours of sleep to repair itself.

Running out the door without breakfast, which never leads to good decisions.

Currently 35 weeks pregnant and at my highest weight ever. I am borderline diabetic with this pregnancy. Since November I have not gained any weight but still trying to balance out my sugars with a healthy diet. Some days are harder than others. But i want to have a healthy baby and become more healthy after I deliver for myself and my family.

As I reached the ripe old age of 69 I began to wonder if I would be able to travel on a plane, sit in a restaurant booth, or dance at my grandchildren’s weddings. It was time to lose weight and prove to myself (not anyone else) that, indeed, I can do this. 30 days and 14 lbs say yes I can. I have 9 granddaughters and 3 great granddaughters so I need to be around to see some grandsons.

The biggest motivator for me has been to NOT have to use insulin. IF I'm honest with myself and the doctor, I just have been lazy about taking my meds and watching my food intake. So for almost 2 weeks now I haven't missed my meds and have logged all my food and exercise.

Pain is a great motivator. I've made peace with the fact that pain for me is chronic ,but it tells me that something is wrong. It's up to me to figure out wht's going on and look for options to deal with the situation.

I was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure 3 years ago and I used to be very sick. Could barely do anything. Once I started eating low sodium and losing weight, I felt like I got my life back. I still get off track here and there, but I always fight to get back on track because I'm so scared of going back to how I used to be.
