  1. All great reasons. I can say I share quite a few.

    We WILL do IT!

  2. It's good to have all of these by heart so that you can look back one day and say NEVER AGAIN....

    First and foremost - to be healthy!

  3. Great list! And it's a good idea to remind ourselves of the reasons we want/need to lose weight!

  4. I posted it on my fridge and on the bottom of my blog to help remind me =)

  5. I'm quite sure you are going to achieve that list. Even once you have, keep them there so you never have to redo the list. :)

  6. Those are excellent reasons and I beleive your going to check off each one of them as your journey continues ! Posting them on your fridge is a great idea, I have my before/after pic on my fridge to remind me where I was and how far I've come....especially when I am tempted to snack at night !

  7. That's an awesome list - I may steel some of those from you!

    I am insulin dependent and I know its a struggle because with insulin, you can eat whatever you want - just give yourself more insulin!

    My highest weight was 210 in 1999 - I did WW and by the spring of 2000 I was 137 - and maintained that until I was put on insulin two years ago - I've gained 30 pounds in two years!

    I decided I just need to take it day by day, and the so called "end" will get here when it does. I am going to add you to my blog roll if you don't mind! Let me know if its okay before I do, okay? I know some people don't like that :D

  8. awesome list... i can't wait to see you achieve each one... thanks for sharing

  9. Sure Biz319! I wonder why someone wouldn't like it... I say the more the merrier! Each of us has something unique to contribute to the mix right?


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
