Reasons I want to lose weight:

1. Healthier body (no more achy joints, muscle weakness)
2. Increased energy.
3. Longevity - eventually be a strong & healthy senior and avoid disease.
4. Enhance stamina/strength to be able to hike/bike/ski, etc.
5. To live more fully/stop holding myself back due to weight.
6. Increased confidence.
7. Be a better example for the children in my life.
8. Travel to exotic places & not be limited by my weight
9. Feel like I look great in clothes again & can wear whatever I want.
10. Being strong/confident in my own skin will help me be more assertive in goal-seeking.

    I have a team mate who has met her weight goal, but sticks with spark people to maintain. She would tell you it is worth the time to keep her from falling off the wagon.

    To both give and receive support, I suggest joining and participating in at least one Spark TEAM. When you signed up, SP offered you a "Spark Class" which is a team for the newbies who signed up the week you did.

    You might find this blog helpful.

    This is helpful also: If I consume fewer calories than my plan recommends, will I lose weight faster?
