There were all too many days while looking at myself in the mirror, I wished I could literally rip the fat from my body. But I believe these feelings -- and most others that might arise -- are totally normal and have to be cleansed like the weight itself.
If better health were not a good enough reason to lose weight, here is a one that is: a happy sex life. Life is made to be lived and enjoyed. If that's not happening, something is wrong that needs to be fixed.
