Health. I've always been a big guy, BUT I used to be an athletic big guy. After a couple years of a desk job, I've let things slide too far, and want to shed a couple of these pounds.

That being said, I wouldn't mind wearing smaller pants as well. I've lost quite a bit of weight already, and it's nice when people notice your hard work.

I want to become happier with myself. I lost some weight last year and my self confidence boosted up. I was also wearing smaller jeans. Now that I have gained 15 lbs back, my confidence it back down and my jeans are tight again.

I want to be happy with me so that it shows and that people are happy with me. I would also like to become more active and not be such a home body.

health and look better

I have a 4 month old son who is going to be crawling soon and I want to be able to keep up with him as he becomes more active.

I have always been big and I want my husband to have a sexy and confident wife. (and to buy clothes at the same stores as my skinny sister-in-laws instead of one for bigger people)

I love who I am but was tired of being self conscious of my weight. I have never been fat but more so uncomfortable. My weight was the only thing in my life that was not where I wanted it to be

I know some people who make themselves feel better about their out of shape bodies by making fun of mine. I want to knock them down a peg by making my butt higher than their self=esteem. Yea.... and for health reasons too.
