50 Great Reasons Why Being Fit is the Shi*!!!

Well, as many of you know last week, I joined Weight Watchers.  During that meeting we discussed 25 Reasons Why You Are Here.  We came up with a list of the reasons why we joined Weight Watchers.  My main reasons are for support, motivation, maintenance, learn and grow in knowledge and share with others.  As you begin a weight loss journey it is important to define why you want to lose weight.  Keeping your list handy can help you to stay focused, as well as provide a bit of motivation in time of need.  

The meeting inspired me to think about the reasons I am happy to be fit.  Why I am happy to have taken off over 100 lbs.  These are not only great reasons why being fit is the ish...but also good reasons for losing weight.  Listed in no particular order.
