    I need to lose about 50 lbs which I gained from having surgery and doing a fusion which helped my pain, but caused a big weight gain. I gained this weight in the past year and am feeling really uncomfortable and really want to get back in shape.

  • By DianneArsenault January 04, 2013

    I'm motivated to lose weight so I can have more energy to enjoy life and be active.

  • By DoreenLamoureux January 04, 2013

    My motivation for losing weight is to keep my blood sugars normal. Two months ago, I was taken off diabetic pills as my blood sugar levels were normal. Yahoo :) :) I lost 30 lbls since April and need to lose 25 more to be at my average healthy body weight. I want the diabetis to stay away and need my cholestorel to go down so I can get off those pills too. Lots to say but there it is. Yes, my health is the big reason.

    My motivation for weight loss in 2012 is a little charismatic boy with hazel eyes that has Avenger Energy. Pride myself in the ability to keep up with him, but must say without the excess tummy bulge - my endurance level would be his New Year's Gift. As most Moms, busy busy busy. This is the year to find time to get healthy - this giveaway has the essential tools to do just that. Would be so grateful and appreciative to win this stellar prize. For the chance Buycanadianfirst thanks. Proud supporter of all Canadian products...great blog site...continued success !

    There is Heart Problems in my family,And being a 52 yr. old male with a beer belly I need to lose about 40Lb.

  • By ColleenCole January 04, 2013

    I weigh the most that I have ever in my life. It is starting to affect my health, as I have been told that while my good cholesteral is high and that is good, my bad cholesteral is climbing - and I have been keeping a little extra fat in my liver, you know, just in case. Both aren't good. And I have family illnesses that make those two even worse. So I have some pretty significant reasons to lose weight. And yet, even though I am an otherwise intelligent person. I just can't seem to kick my butt out the door to exercise, and my weight just languishes. This prize would be a nice kick start and the fact that the weigh ins last a month means I would be off to a nice start. Thanks for the chance.

  • By SandraTuplin January 04, 2013

    I want to lose weight so I look and feel better.

  • By killerpinkd January 04, 2013

    I want to lose weight as I too had major surgery early in 2012, I have a hip to hip scar as it was internal abdominal surgery. I also have diabetes type II and try to control my sugars with my diet and haven't been doing a very good job of it lately. Combined with a mental disability that makes it hard to get motivated, I feel I am drowning in the extra weight I am carrying. Ultimately I would like to lose 75 pounds, but 50 would be a good start for me.... thanks! I'm following and I tweeted of course :)

  • By BethRosell January 04, 2013

    My motivation for losing weight for real this time is because I'm too young to be feeling like this.

  • By DawnFildes January 04, 2013

    My motivation for losing all this weight is health - with multiple health issues I knew I wouldn't live to be 100 (that's my aim!) if I didn't take drastic action. Last August I joined a gym, got a personal trainer and started eating healthy - to date I have lost 23lbs BUT I still have another 100 lbs to go. It's not easy as I have osteoarthritis, IBS, epilepsy, hypertension, depression and an ulcer to contend with, however I am feeling more positive and happy about myself than I have done in a long time and plan to continue with diet and exercise despite being restricted to a gluten free diet and limited dairy. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYBODY!

  • By paulaHuie January 04, 2013

  • By LaurieBolduc January 09, 2013

    My motivation is the 30 pounds that I just lost. It feels great and I have another 30-40 to reach my goal. That and none of my clothes fit me at my highest weight which depressed me.

  • By BrendaPenton January 17, 2013

    My motivation is not so much for losing weight as I have lost quite a bit over the last few years, but to just eat healthier and control my blood sugar levels. I have PCOS and it is a struggle to maintain the weight loss. I have a hard time with coming up with meals and snacks that are balanced.
