Vikki- I fear that too, which is one of the reasons I do ETL. I want to be one of those healthy, happy seniors who runs circles around the others, who are in wheelchairs.

Mike- That's sad that your wife never gives you compliments. Is that just the way she is?

The scale registered another pound down this morning, but since I only do my official weigh-in twice a week now, I'm waiting until tomorrow to see if it's still registering and then I'll count it.

This morning I was stressing about success. Because this is my big motivating factor, sometimes, if I feel unsuccessful, I'm in danger of eating vegan cupcakes. Then I remember other factors, like what Vikki said about being healthy into old age, and get over the cupcake thing. This body is too important to fuel with junk.

Clothes fitting better, and then clothes being too big, and then having to go buy new clothes!!

Feeling more fit, being able to hike up a couple flight of stairs and not feel like I'm going to pass out.

Healthy aging. I really have no fear of death. I know I'm going to die someday (not too soon I hope!) My bigger fear is growing old and being sickly or homebound or having to depend on someone to take care of me. I want to stay healthy and feeling good, well into old age.

Having my spouse or friend or neighbor or business associate or complete stranger say, "Damn you look good!" And me KNOWING it's true!

My clothes fitting better and hoping that my cholesterol will come down. It is not high but has been climbing up the last few years. Oh, and hoping that I will have less pain in my back and joints and will feel like exercising more. All these things.

Maybe this is a silly question, but I think we'll all have surprisingly different answers.

What is the best part of weight loss to you?

For me, it's the simple satisfaction of success, and of a job well done. Yes, the weight is going and happily I can fit into smaller and smaller clothes, and my health is improving. However, this all comes through hard work. My work is creating change, and that's very satisfying.
