REASONS I WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT:
*Wear my Skinny jeans again
*Feel better about myself
*To be healthy
*To feel sexy again
*Lose weight before I have another child (which isn't anytime soon, lol)
*To prove to myself I can do it
*To wear a two piece swimsuit this summer when I take kohl to the pool
*To be more flexible
*To teach Kohl healthy habbits
Have someone to encourage you, check in on how you are doing & even to workout with you ;)
*Buy a calendar to mark days I exercise, keep track of wt loss & inches to make sure goals are being met.
For accomplishing my goals I will get my hair highlighted and buy a new outfit. I haven't had my hair done in ages!!
