    Congratulations on deciding to start back. I have about a million motivations-a few would be:
    -I have a dress I want to buy and fit into for my uni summer ball in 2years time
    -in 2 years time I will be going to university in the US for a year and don't want to be fat
    -I want to feel healthier and be able to walk like any other 20 year old
    -I want to be able to shop anywhere
    I just feel like I have been REALLY overweight since I was about 9 and don't want it to STEAL anymore of my life for me and keep making me unhappy.

    Ahh fantastic - i like the idea of having an item of clothing to keep
    motivated!
    I'm exactly the same, i've always had a weight problem but i really want to do something about it now!!
    Weigh-in went okay but i was absolutely horrified to have my weight confirmed...!! Looking forward to seeing what i weigh next week - hopefully lighter :rolleyes:

    well done u for going back!
    IM going away on hol in sept so its motivating me to get some
    weight off for it
    the smaller clothes sitting in my wardrobe waiting 2 be worn ,I got a monthly pass to motivate me to go every wk
    prevously when done other s/clubs when had bad wks and missed wks and stopped going all together not going to do that this time
    I ve stuck apic on fridge door when I was thinner to stop me going in and picking someone I know where I used to work had a fridge magnet thats say fridge pickers wear bigger knickers lols
    this time going to ww with afriend so hopefully will motivate me more

    Ive always had aweight prob myself it s always yoyoing up and down hope this time will be different

    Oh, another person from Worcestershire.. helloooo :D.

    I think your first goal is very realistic and achievable, that's always a good start!

    What motivates me is seeing people with the figure I want and picturing myself with it :p Plus looking at old photos.

    Ahh yeah i'm from Redditch (how embarrassing, hehe!).

    Well i've started this morning counting my points again! This forum seems like a good way of staying motivated too as it's so active and everyone seems really supportive. Wilyn - i got a monthly pass too, no ducking out this time!!

    I'm trying to get my other half to agree to a holiday next year - the idea of being able to wear a swinsuit or bikini is enough to keep me going!! :)
