    Why are YOU losing weight? <3

    I know that everyone is probably doing it for themselves, but what's that one little thing in the back of your mind that's made you want to shift the weight? Is it for your health? For a wedding? For a sexy new wardrobe? Or just to feel confident in your own skin? <3
    I'm doing it to keep fit and to feel fab in my clothes. Also doing it do rock a bikini in the Summer.

    Am at target now, but I looked at a photo of myself a couple of years ago and was so shocked. I joined because I wanted primarily to fit into nice fashionable clothes again, I was so sick of baggy shirts and leggings, or jeans with loads of muffin top. Tomorrow night I am going out to a birthday bash wearing black skinny jeans,a lacy black top, lacy high heeled shoes and although I say it myself I thought to myself when trying them on "you look ok girl"!!!

    Because when I looked at a picture of a friends hen party I looked like I'd eaten the hen.
    It actually made me cry, I'm so much happier already and I'm still a long way from my final target (I reckon it will be 9st) but I'm enjoying the journey

    I am doing it so I can finally stop looking at other people and thinking "I want to be as skinny as her". I am also hoping it will give me more self confidence. I have spent the last 25 years with the thought that everyone around me is pointing, laughing, and saying isn't she fat! Daft and irrational, I know, but it has dominated my life. Goodbye pounds, goodbye negative thoughts, hello new me!

    I was doing it for myself really, however I got some bad news that really bit me in the backside. I found out I had cystic ovaries and the Doctor told me that if I lose weight I would be ok, if I didn't and got bigger it would cause me a lot of problems and struggle to have children. That freaked me out and it's what is keeping me going otherwise I would of given up after losing 1 stone, if that even. I am looking forward to a lot of benefits from being slim as well, be able to shop in the high street, wear bikinis when I go away and nice dresses without feeling insecure about the way I look!

    I had a very very very big cyst removed from one of my ovaries.. Do not worry, I know it's scary but having PCOS doesn't mean you can't have children.. Concentrate on losing weight and your doctor is right, it will help xxx

    Mostly for my health, I have PCOS and docs keep trying different tablets on me all of which give me mood swings (bad ones), so need to lose weight to see if it helps the condition. But there is part of me that hates seeing me as big as I was too and wants to be slimmer.

    I've always been chubby. I was at my thinnest (53kg) when I was 21-22 but at the time I was doing intensive kick boxing training 3 times a week and I was practically starving myself! For 1.57m, 53kg was pretty skinny, but my coach kept telling me that I am too fat and I need to lose weight. After a while I just gave up and over the years grew to an incredible 85kg! I have tried a lot of diets with no results or with mild results and lots of negative side-effects (feeling crappy all the time doesn't really help keep you motivated).
    In general I have mild PCOS and since I would like to try for a baby in 2-3 years, I want my body to be in the best shape possible, so that no problems arise at the time (miscarriages and stillbirths are quite common in obese women and I really don't want to deal with something like that). So that was reason number one, the main one, but also a long term one.
    Reason number two and I guess the real "eye opener" was about a month ago when I was packing my clothes (my boyfriend and I were moving) and I saw that I have a ton of pretty clothes that I cannot fit into any more! It made me really sad and when I read about Slimming World a few days ago in a blog, I decided to give it a try since it seemed to be quite nice!
    My boyfriend is joining me and I really hope it works out!

    I have always been morbidly obese. I weigh a lot, always have, and my mum would say I always would. Most of my family are chubby but none would be classified as badly as me. I met my boyfriend fifteen months ago over the Xbox and we met up in real life having found out we lived so close. He was understanding of my weight. I weighed a hefty 24 stone whereas he only weighed 10 stone. I avoided pictures of us together. His my boyfriend I should want to have pictures taken with him. I've ruined the first year of our relationship as we cannot look back on any of the memories we have had in photos only in little keep sakes such as event tickets etc. After finding out I couldn't go to Alton Towers with him because of my weight and my sister having a baby it started to all piece together. In order for me to enjoy my life with my boyfriend and the rest of my family, in order for me to not have my weight be an issue when I want to have children, in order for me to wear a wedding dress whenever my boyfriend decides to pop the question that doesn't make me look like a heffalump, everything boiled down to me losing weight. I joined Slimming World. And I won't ever regret it. I've lost just over 4 and a half stone and I don't intend to stop until I can say I'm comfortable being the size I am, and I am comfortable in knowing that I will be able to do those things and be happy looking how I look.
