-I want to feel better about myself. -I want to live longer. My uncle died recently he was 42 and my Mom died when she was 33. -I want better digestion. I am tired of having heartburn every night. -I want to sleep better. -I want to get out of the depression/funk I tend to fall in.
...because: - I want to feel better in my own skin. -I want to enjoy summer, not being a prisoner in my home, trying to avoid sweating in the heat - I want to be fit when my husband and I will start to built a new home -I want to have more self confidence, to answer back to those with bad maners -I want to wear confidently my own clothes -I want to be better in my sex life -I want my knees and back to stop hurting - I want to enjoy nature to the fullest -and much much more
We first make our habits. Then our habits make us.
I gained this extra weight in my early 50's and I just dealt with it.now I will be 60 in November and I am determined to get back to my normal weight.But,my reasons are very different for wanting the weight loss,st this point in my life.I want to feel good,be healthy and be strong in my later years.I have fibromyalgia ,and I know I will help ease the pain with the weight loss.
next year i want to try to get pregnant and i want to be as healthy as possible for my future kids so that i can set a good example for them and give them the best possible chance at being healthy. also, i want to feel good about myself and confident, and show my spouse that he is worth the effort it takes to try to look good for him rather then letting myself go because i have him trapped :-p
I want to tie my own shoes, I don't want to be winded climbing the stairs, I want to stop taking insulin shots (or maybe not take as many), I want to stop using oxygen to breathe, I want to look better in my clothes and without my clothes, I want to feel better about myself, I want it known that I can loose weight and I want more energy!
What you put in your mouth in private shows in public!!
It doesn't matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop. Don't quit!!
Weight gain doesn't happen overnight - Neither does weight loss!

I'm having the same problem, I eat well most of the time don't always eat the alotted calories usually more, beat myself up if I have extra piece of toast, however when I get cravings I give in but then have something else next day not so good. Today had 4 biscuits were they good no, but will probably eat rest by day.
As for exercise I used to love it and went 5-7 days a week, now I can't remember when I went last, the motivation just isn't there. I say everyday I will go but never do.
