Things losing weight will do for you: Make you healthier, able to do more, boost your self image, increase your desire to get out and live. Things losing weight will not do for you: Make you love yourself as you are, get the perfect mate, make you funnier, make you smarter, change your attitude. You have the power to change whether or not you succeed. Losing weight is just a change that improves how much you can do with what you already have inside. You have the whole package, you just have to unwrap it.
