    If you had to pick just one reason why you are trying to lose weight now, what would it be ? It can't be health related but one ordinary thing that would make you feel better.

    Mine is

    I want to sit on a plane and know that the tray is going to go completely flat and I will be able to eat my meal properly.

    So that when I think of my young Sons growing up and having families and careers, I'll know I will physically still be part of their lives, rather than a memory.

    Not wishing to sound too morbid. When I got to forty and was still 24 stone, I had a sudden realisation I was killing myself. I hadn't up to that point really thought of myself as anything but very much alive.

    Hi all

    I'm starting tomorrow (friday) & one of my reasons for losing weight is so that i can have some photos with my 3 yr old twins. In the 3 yrs they have been here i think i've got possibly 1 or 2 photos (which i hate!) I run away from the camera at the mo, so my aim is for this christmas to have some lovely family photos done!!!!

    Buy clothes I really like and feel good in rather than what I could get in my size thinking "that will do" and be able to look at myself in the mirror and not be totally and utterly ashamed of myself.

    I want to live in the real world, not hide in my fat isolated world.

    No way there are far too many reasons
    But my biggest one must be

    for my long awaited and bestest daughter in the world to be proud of her mum

    Ajax, your reason made me cry!!!

    My reason is much more superfical and materialistic!!!

    I wanna look good!!!
    .......And i'd love to buy really nice clothes and say to hell with the cost, knowing that it will be something nice and classic and a size 10, knowing that it will fit next year and the year after (it will be great to have a wardrobe full of size 10 clothes, rather than stuffed with everything from a 16 to size 26 and still nothing to wear!!!)

    Clothes, clothes and clothes! hang on is that 3 reasons? Well, call me superficial (you can if you like, I can take it!) but it is all about feeling younger and trendy and comfy and happy instead of like a middle aged sack of spuds! I want to wear jeans again ( not elasticated ones from Evans, proper ones witha cute t shirt. Thats about it really. Yeah, Clothes!
