Why do you want to loose weight?

I tried a app last night that was supposed to help motivate you to loose weight by giving you challenges and reminders, but before you started you had to choose the reason for why you wanted to loose weight and all the reasons just filled me with anger about this society and it's superficial focus on outward appearances (things like "I want to be ready for swim suit season, or I want to impress people at my reunion). I want to loose weight because society has trained me to hate this body. I should just be happy being healthier and just move on from there.

In other news I finally found a reason to have a fitness tracker. An inactivity alarm to remind me that I've been sitting like a lump for too long.

In other other news my Zumba game makes me feel a lot better physically. I suck at doing the dance moves and I'm still not very high energy at it, but it does wonders for my back and neck, which is a huge, happy suprise.
