1. Losing weight, and reading about the success of others on this list that have lost amazing amounts of weight.

2. Medical benefits of losing weight: lowering BP was my number 2 goal (after weight loss).

3. Moving down in pant size, instead of the gradual creeping up every year or two.

4. Establishing written, documented goals, with interim milestones, daily, weekly, and monthly targets. I would actually put this number 1, but don't want to edit the list. Critical to me that the goals are ACTIVITY based, not outcome. Example, ride 400 miles in a month, versus lose 5 pounds in a month. You can control activities. Outcomes are the result of the activities. You can go out today and ride an extra 30 miles in order to meet a mileage goal. You cannot go out and lose an extra pound today.
