Hey thought i'd start a thread to share reasons why we are working out, im beginning to appreciate that its not just aesthetic i.e. for appearance!

24 Apr
For me it's not only for appereance but health as well. I stopped smoking and heavy drinking, and used exercise as a another stress reliever. Which in the end has made me feel much more ' alive ' upbeat and happy. Especially since I am a stay at home mom of 3 with a small business on the side. Plus exercising is becoming very fun for me as well.

Exactly the same as you adrienne. 3 kids, stopped smoking/drinking. Want a better tighter body and also think of it all as a project, too improve health and strength too!

To feel confident in my skin and have more energy. But most importantly, because I come from a family where everyone is obese I thought my healthy habits could inspire them to want to lose weight and be healthy as well (:

Health. Health is priceless. Workout can prevent diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and consequently, save money to go to the doctor

For me I was always skinny but healthy.... Then I got sick was in bed 6 years and gained 50 lbs (which is saying a lot since I could rarely eat due to overwhelming nausea)... It took 1 year for me to be able to sit up on the sofa watching tv all day with out taking a nap.... Every time I saw a mirror I wanted to cry because I literally looked like the beast that ate me... I finally decided I needed to make a change and I wanted to feel sexy again weight doesn't matter now neither does the size of my jeans (I went from a 00 in juniors to a 10 in womens it was shocking to say the least. Its been 6 months and I'm not quite at my goal of feeling sexy but I'm close I wear woman's size 6 I'm 120lbs 5'2".

My reasons may be for my looks but my looks are important to me.
Growing up I liked the positive talk about me even if it was over physical attributes only.
Losing control of those is hard enough as I get older but my figure is something I can control and I will control it till my last day

I've been skinny since forever so it has never been about that for me. I just like the fact that I can be healthy on the inside as well as the outside. The fact that it makes me look good is just a bonus. Plus I have a ton of younger kids in my family who look up to me and I'd like to show them that you can workout and have a life and have fun with it. It's really funny to watch the younger kids immitate me. And on top of that I'll be such a hot grandma in the future! Lol

I workout cause I love the feeling of looking in the mirror and seeing I'm doing great with my body . And the feeling of pushing yourself is the best .

I workout because I have a chronic depression issue..  I use exercise to increase my seratonin levels so I don't fall into a dark place

I work out because I use to be an alcoholic that smoked alot and noticed a real bad side of me that needed to change. I now exercise, explore the outdoors, and eat right.
