1. Losing weight helps control diabetes (I REALLY hope I can get off insulin).
2. Losing weight can help prevent heart disease, cancer, and other illnesses.
3. Losing weight can give you a whole new wardrobe because you can suddenly wear clothes that have been in your closet for a long time.
4. Losing weight can boost your self-confidence and give you a feeling of accomplishment.
5. Losing weight can make you finally weigh less than your husband. (I’m not there yet, but I’m getting close.)
6. Losing weight can keep your body from continuing to move after you’ve stopped jumping up and down for joy.
7. Losing weight can make you able to shop longer…so, you know, you can buy more stuff.
8. Losing weight can make you able to tie your shoes straight instead of off to the side. (Does anyone understand what I mean here?)
9. Losing weight can make you feel more confident when you’re going to Las Vegas for the RNConvention in August and you’re going to meet the cover model (Jimmy Thomas) that’s been on many of your books. 🙂
10. Losing weight can make you want to start helping OTHER people be healthier because your excitement is contagious. Yay!
