    Hi everyone

    I know we're all losing weight for different reasons, but I thought it'd be nice to share our goals with each other.

    The main thing thats motivating me is my sisters wedding. She's getting married in May next year and I am going to be her only bridesmaid.

    Unfortunately me being the size I am is proving a little difficult when trying to get a dress that doesn't make me look like I'm wearing a great big shiny tent (seriously - they do absolutely nothing for me!)

    To make me put a time limit on my goals, I have now sworn to my sister that I will be a size 16 for her wedding (and not squeezing in one either). Hopefully I can do this by December to allow for dress shopping & fittings etc.
    Ideally I would like to be a bit smaller than that, but given the time frame I'm being realistic. Also, I can't imagine myself any smaller than a size 16 as I've been this size for the past 12? years. The last time I was a size 16 I was a teenager!

    I have got to pull out every stop and I figure if I can lose 3 stone by then I should fit into size 16 clothes. Its really only 1.5-2lb a week when its broken down.

    So in 12 months time I see myself as a size 16 bridesmaid!

    Hi

    I see myself as a considered person, a person who has the ability to be big but also someone who has made a choice to be careful about what she eats.

    I dont hate my body, I'm lucky in the fact that I am confident regardless of my size BUT I want to be able to wear the latest fashion and its not always available in my size.

    I want to continue on my journey of discovering new foods, new tastes, things I never touched before cos I didnt think they would be as good as the creamy curry, steak and chips, lamb shoulder, pork crackling but they do.

    I see myself borrowing my sisters clothes, not feeling like I have settled with being seriously overweight. My target is about 11-12 stone and I really dont want to be a size 12, My fella loves my curves, and so do I.

    I think this is a good post and look forward to seeing the other posts!!

    Come on you lot, dont hold back!

    Hiya

    Funny this thread has come up as was only talking to my mum today who is also on Xenical and if I loose at least 7lbs a month which is what I am aiming for I hope to be down to my ideal by Crimbo!! When I did Lighterlife and got down to 12'10 I was over the moon mind you I was perfectly satisfied being 13 stone. So no occassions coming up just want to do it for me and look good at Christmas.

    Well done Coffee Bean for starting this thread - it defo makes you think what you want at the end of your journey!!

    Good luck everyone!

    In 12 months time I want to be healthier and fitter than I am now and be able to buy something in ANY shop not just somewhere that sells "plus sized" clothing - that makes my blood boil! A bit like Julie I am confident whatever my weight ( nothing wrong with that) but I have used the excuse of my PCOS to put on more and more weight and I feel so tired and drab all the time. i take the mickey out of myself so that other people don't get there first and i take alot of ribbing over my size. even though i am tall i hate being told that my weight doesn't show - well it bloody does when everyone you know is skinny! I've no idea of my ideal weight but i would be happy in a size 14. i need to set myself realistic targets and not over extend my belief that i will be a size 10 cos it would look bloody awful on me ... also i don't want my daughter to have a fat mum!
    so ladies, here's to us all feeling better, looking better and living better.

    i dnt want to lose too many curves either as they look nice in indian outfits! im bit on the short size (5'2) so will need to weight about 10 stone or lower to be able to wear this size i think!

    What a great thread!

    I would like to have dropped to a size 16/18 and be well on my way to a size 12/14 which is my goal.
    I am fed up off payin lots of money for plus size clothing that I dont really like most of the time when I could be spending the same in somewhere like Next and getting some much nicer items. The last few times I've gone to get clothes I've ended up leaving with nothing as hated myself n everything I tried on, so I'dlike to like myself in clothes again.

    I also want to be able to do more things with my daughter as my partners arthritis gets worse Im gonna need to be more active for her and me. Health benefits are also on my mind.

    Really helps to remember why you're doing this.

    Wow - good to hear so many of your goals. My thoughts on this one are if you share them it makes you want to achieve them more.

    I'm going to add to mine and I hope to god it doesn't take a year to achieve, but I'm waiting for the day I can complete the jogging course on the wii fit without feeling like I'm having a coronary. Silly I know but its the one thing that defeats me every time!

    This is a great idea. A real motivation.

    In 12 month's time I would like to be at least 6 stone (84lbs) lighter. I want to be shopping in normal shops and I want to be a hell of a lot fitter and healthier. I want to be in control of my eating habits and enjoy eating a healthy and varied diet. But most importantly, I want to be in control of my life, not food, not obesity, not health problems, me in control choosing to live healthily and happily.
