    I want to lose weight because ...

    I started SW on 2nd Jan and feeling really motivated at the moment. I keep having thought about why I want to lose weight and what the differences will be for me when I do. So, before I forget them all, I thought I would start a place to jot them down as I think about them. Then I can look back when I am struggling.

    So to start with, I want to lose weight because...

    - I will feel happier
    - I will be able to buy nice new clothes without continually thinking there is no point buying anything new until I lose weight
    - I will be able to wear a dress without having to cover up the tops of my arms
    - I will feel I am setting a good example to my daughter
    - I will look like one of those women I envy who look so good in clothes and healthily slim
    - I will not feel embarrassed in the swimming pool
    - I will buck the trend on my mother's side of the family by being slim!
    - I will not hate seeing a fat face and double chin in the mirror
    - I will not be embarrassed to be seen naked and feel more sexy!
    - I will improve my IBS
    - I will improve my sleep apnoea

    How is that for starters? To be continued as things occur to me ...

    Your objectives are really motivating, i might do this myself to remind me every time i feel like caving in. I found a brill little quote today which i know will help

    'Are your excuses more important than your dreams?'

    Hope this helps you too x

    That's great. Yes, my excuses have been more important than anything up to now! My head has continually told me I can start tomorrow - EVERY DAY!!

    Feel free to add your list here, would help me to see why other people want to lose weight as will be lots I have not thought of.

    Good luck!

    That is a brilliant quote! Might have to use that as my mantra! What a good idea to write down all your reasons! I think I might do that in my new diary! Best of luck x

    -to be able to ride my motorbike
    -to not be ill all the time

    -to walk into any shop and see myself in those awful mirrors and be like 'OMG I'm gorgeous'
    DO NOT REWARD YOURSELF WITH FOOD - YOU ARE NOT A DOG
    I pledge to take it 1 lb at a time and to ease up on myself when I make a mistake.

    Brilliant! Love your reasons.

    The shop mirror one is so true for me too.

    Anyone any more?

    Also to be a role model for my children, my mum has always been a big lady and im so proud of her for losing over 100lb but she wishes she had done it earlier in life, I dont want my children to be ashamed of me!
    Nothing tastes as good as fit and healthy feels!!!

    1st weigh in - 13st 13lb (again....)



    1st mini goal, Get out of the 13's
    2nd mini goal, Get to the weight i was when i got married (12st 8lb)

    Love this thread! Some of mine are:

    - To not suffer for a week after wearing heels for an hour
    - To have the confidence to wear a dress...any dress but in particular ones shorter than my ankle length
    - To stop pretending to be scared of rollercoasters because I don't want to risk the embarrassment of having to get off because the harness won't fit
    - To look straight down and see the floor!
    Starting again 10/12/13!

    Weight lost to date - 13

    So glad other people are adding to this - it's great to read. I think I can identify with them all!

    I have never been able to wear heels (not that I have much desire to at 5ft 9" but never thought that it could be a weight thing. Be interesting to see if I can wear them WHEN ( not if!) I am much lighter.
