It's not really that I've forgotten why, but that I've forgotten how. I've lost this weight before, but life seems to have gotten in the way of me losing it again.

It's heartening when that happens, Chris. Keep up the good work. I got a 'You look trim.' comment at the weekend. I beamed!

This time last year I was just out of hospital with my fatty liver diagnosis and a big grey cloud over my head. I re-thought my diet and tried to come to grips with some emotional eating issues. It wasn't easy but I have made good progress.

I'm pledging another year of sensible eating. I am worth the effort!

'Lighthouse?'

It's a seaside wedding for my DD. Lovely, informal, summery dresses and I want to walk into the stores and choose without getting over anxious about size.

4th reason is due to my fibromyalgia. If I eat right, that is much less bothersome.

I'm glad that you are doing it. I have had 5 knee surgeries, with 2 total replacements and it is not fun. Now, I lost the weight, but my body is full of arthritis and joint pain.

I am doing this to keep the pain at a tolerable level without so many meds

My overarching reason is to be healthy...some specific reasons include:

- lessen back & joint pain
- reduce/eliminate need for medications (I.e. Blood pressure)
- have more energy to do the things I want to do
- to become an active participant in many life events rather than watch from the sidelines.

Here are some general ideas:

To feel more confident to start dating again?
To get into your favorite pair of jeans?
To feel sexy for your husband or wife?
To look good at your upcoming high school reunion?
Because the doctor told you you're pre-diabetic but that there is still a chance to turn it around?
Because you're sick and tired of feeling sick and tired?

WHY do you want to lose weight?

The more articles I read about DAILY motivation-the more it says you need to remind yourself DAILY, HOURLY, whenever you can about WHY YOU ARE DOING THIS in the first place.
emoticon


So, let's post some good ideas about why we might want to keep fighting to be the best we can be!

I will post as many as I can daily, but of course, if you add your own reasons, it will mean more for you as well.
