Only two:

1) Father died from complications of type 2 diabetes

2) Mother died from multiple strokes

Both were obese most of my life. I saw that as a possible future for me, and after trying a few different other diets, I found that low glycemic/low carb worked for me.

WOE: Ah Ah Ah Ah Stayin' Alive, Stayin' Alive.
I have a few:

1. As a fitness instructor, it's kinda important to actually LOOK the part ()
2. Keep energy & stamina up while teaching
3. ALLERGIES (they are the absolute worse. Horrible, violent sneezes that cause nosebleeds, etc)
4. To shut up a friend who keeps telling me I should eat 'clean'. Oh yeah, watch this!
5. Just feel better overall (i'm realizing triggers and whatnot - trying Whole30 [even if it was for only 6 days ] definitely opened my eyes to a lot).

WOE: Low Carb-due to PCOS
Start Date: May 25, 2013
I just started so:

1. Health
2. Be able to move with comfort
3. Fit into cute clothes
4. Get off meds and hopefully my cpap
and most important
5. My body is "carb intolerant". Carbs cause my body to store fat. My dr. basically said I am "allergic" to carbs.
