Why I Want to Lose Weight

It has been a while since I wrote about my reasons for wanting to lose weight. It helps to keep your “why” in sight because it’s probably the biggest motivator in weight loss.

Here are a handful of my reasons.

Good Health

I don’t want to have health problems at a young age. There are a lot of health issues that can arise with obesity and I don’t want my family to have to suffer. I want to be healthy and vibrant for as long as possible so that I can be there for my husband and daughter.

A 2nd Pregnancy

I had a horrific experience with a doctor regarding my weight while I was pregnant. I still have not worked up the courage to write about this yet—but it’s something that does need to be said someday. I don’t want to experience that ever again. The next pregnancy, I want to feel cute as a pregnant woman—not huge and overweight. Plus, it’s healthier for the mama and baby.


I have very little self-confidence and I know that losing weight will help me gain some. I want to feel good in my own body and be able to dress stylishly without restrictions on the clothes that are available for me to wear.

Less Worry

If you’ve ever been overweight you will know what I’m talking about. I worry that the belt won’t fit over my lap, or that a chair won’t hold me. I worry that I won’t be able to fit into a booth. I worry that I will weigh too much to be able to ride a roller coaster or to participate in an activity with my daughter. There’s so much worry about my size.

To Be Thin

I’ve never in my life been thin. I want to know what that’s like and I want to experience life to the fullest.


Ever since 2008 when I started this journey, it has been my goal to get down to my ideal weight and reward myself with a trip to Hawaii. It would be awesome to accomplish this by next year because hubby and I will celebrate our 10th anniversary and we’d like to go on a nice trip together.

I’m sure I could always think of more reasons why I want to lose the weight—there are so many!

What are your reasons?
