  1. Bathing suit without shame.
  2. Chafing no more
  3. Daily activities with ease and grace.
  4. Energy to keep up with my kids.
  5. Enjoy shopping for clothes.
  6. Getting up off the floor with ease.
  7. Go down the stairs like normal.
  8. Going up stairs and not be outta breath.
  9. Live longer
  10. Look better naked
  11. No more sucking in my gutt for pictures.
  12. One chin
  13. Picking up dropped item while sitting and still being able to breath
  14. Reduce various health risks associated with being overweight.
  15. Shop off the rack
  16. Taking pics of myself again w/o being embarassed
  17. Tie my shoes without my stomach making it so difficult.
  18. Wear boots...(less thigh will make boots possible)
  19. Wear heels comfortably.


  1. Im thinking about joining your big but theory =] you can do it!!

  2. Join the Big Butt theory revolution. j/k. I just wana get healthy and sexy. Is that 2 much 2 ask.

  3. I love your reasons. Other then healthy and body for me it was so I could go and do anything with my boy scouts and not be excluded because of the weight limitations. I made that part, now so I can fit into that red dress. After that...well not sure yet but I'll figure it out.
    Take care and keep up the great work. Blessings my friend.

  4. Good reasons. Keep working on it and they will come.

  5. Yes!!!!!!! This is one to print out and hang somewhere that you see it, near your closet or mirror. It will work as a great reminder when you feel like being lazy or eating something that is outrageous. Love the list!

  6. Amen and Amen! To every single one of those! Well, except the kid part. Mine are all grown up now!

  7. I can so relate to this list..Very good to keep with you as a reminder..

  8. It's great to remind yourself why you're doing it. I totally agree and can relate to 6, 10, 11, 12, 14 and 15 x

  9. Those are all great reasons,
    you might enjoy the tumblr account reasonstobefit.tumblr.com/, they post high quality photos with their reasons to be fit on them. Best wishes with this and the Spring Chick Challenge, can't wait xx

  10. Wishing you a Very Happy New Year.

  11. This is a great idea, and something I am going to steal from you and do myself this afternoon hehehee.
    There are a lot of things on your list that I understand completely!!
    Looking forward to your SCC challenge post, I expect great things from you chicka - or I will kick yo ass! LOL
    Happy New Year, I hope 2012 is your best year yet.

  12. Great list, when I was at my biggest, tying my shoes was so freakin hard, i would wedge myself between the wall and my bathroom sink so I could reach my shoes!!
    I look forward to this year and watching the title of your blog change... Littlebutttheory

  13. Stormy - Basically on the 28th of January you run 5k, however you like. Outside, on the treadmill, in 1k blocks, walk/run/hop/dance. Which ever you prefer, then at the end of the day you write a little run down of what you did, how you went and you email that to the challenge moderator.

    Silly me didn't share the link in my post so I will fix it now.
