why I want to lose weight....

Though these reasons for losing weight are my own, inspiration for this list is from this blog and this blogger's list. I felt that it was important for me to create my own reasons for wanting to lose weight. This list will serve as a reminder to me when dieting becomes difficult, when I say that one slice of cake or an extra serving of potatoes won't matter. I can read this list and realize that I'm doing this for me.

  1. to lead a healthy lifestyle
  2. not get diabetes
  3. regulate my PCOS
  4. possibly help with infertility
  5. to not be limited by my weight
  6. to not be embarrassed in public places
  7. not worrying if I'm the fattest person in the room
  8. to be able to shop at normal clothing stores
  9. not being embarrassed to get my picture taken
  10. to go horseback riding
  11. ride my bike again without worrying about deflating the tires
