So here we go, my final motivation (not that they were posted in order of importance or anything)...
I want to be an active and involved mommy. I know I've already touched on this when I talked about my kids and about hiking, but this is important. Walks to the park, bike rides, waterparks, swimming, vacations and sightseeing, cross country/downhill skiing when they're older and the list could go on and on. These are the kind of things I see the family doing and while being out of shape and overweight by no means make these things impossible...they make them more difficult and less likely to happen.
Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections.

The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.
