My goal for this dietbet challenge is to improve my health. Diabetes, high blood pressure, and other negative health issues run in my family.  A couple of years ago, I lost both of my parents within 3 months of eachother.  It was a real eye opener. I want to fit into my old size 6/7 jeans, not because I think I look better at that size, but because it's an indicator that my BMI has returned back to the normal range.  I'm not too far from my goal... my goal to be in better health to minimize the chances of heart disease, diabetes, etc.  Dropping some pounds is definitely a welcomed bonus in my quest to be a better me.
