I have no delusions about losing weight. I don't expect to find some inner happiness just from shedding pounds, or to suddenly be overwhelmed with a dating life (which I don't want right now anyway). But I think it's important for all of us to write down some concrete reasons we want to get fit, to visualize ourselves at our goal fitness levels and see what we love about it. Write up a list and post it on your fridge and pantry, and read it everytime you get non-hungry munchies.

1. I want to set a good example for my children.
2. I want to be comfortable in any seat, anywhere.
