For my kids: I want to be a role model to my grown children. I want them to see that while weight loss is hard, they can do it too (and it only gets harder, the longer you wait). I want them to realize if their “old” mom who historically has hated exercise can do it, so can they. I want to live long enough to see them grow up and have families, careers, and satisfying lives of their own. For me: I want to look better and feel better! I want to swim more, walk more, run some, kayak, dance, live, love. I used to just want to climb 2 flights of stairs without hyperventilating; now I want to advance from walking 5X/wk to power walking/jogging 7X/wk. And for me, I want all of the things I want for myself for my kids!
