Why I Want To Lose Weight

Let's face it, being fat is not fun.  I know for me it has caused a lot of issues in my life.  I know some people out there are comfortable in their skin, but I never have been. Getting healthy has been one of the best things I have ever done.  I am going to keep going until I reach my goal, and then I will keep it.

Why I want to lose weight:
  • I am tired of paying the fat tax on clothes.  You know, the additional $2 on the item, because they have to use a whole lot more thread for my fat butt.
  • I want to know what it's like being able to take my shirt off at a pool or the beach and not worry or think about people judging me.
  • I HATE being called "big guy."  "Hey there, big guy!" I don't want to give them a reason to say that to me anymore.  I have always been the "big guy."
  • My thighs are going to break up.  They have been stuck at each other's side for many years, but it's time for a separation.  No more chub rub!
  • I will be able to ride rides at theme parks with my kids.  I will be able to coach my kid's sports teams and not feel ashamed of being the fat guy.  I will be able to run with them and teach them the importance of living healthy.
  • I will be able to walk into a job interview and be confident that they are looking at my credentials and not my weight.  People are a lot less likely to higher an obese person.
  • I will just feel better about myself.  No more pity parties because of my weight.  I will not be able to run and hide behind my size.  It will all be about me.
  • I will be able to do everything at Boot Camp. Those classes kill me, and I can never get the full sets in!
I will keep working hard.

1. Wear my favorite clothes.
2. Look good for my husband.
3. No more conversations where people think that extra weight is a baby.
4. To have a healthy relationship with food.
5. Set a good example for my son.
6. No shame at the swimming pool.
7. Look good in my bridesmaid dress for my sister-in-laws wedding.
8. Live to be an old lady.
9. Because I feel great when I workout, and it is awesome to be in shape.
