Hello, just a general nosey question really.

is there a particular reason your losing weight? wedding? event? or just fed up of the way you are?

i, personally am doing this for fertility treatment, (and i HATE the way i look) with my bmi been so high, we cant have it til its in the "normal" range. this is also my main focus..... we have our next fertility appt on the 20th feb, 4 weeks tomorrow, so not letting the negative feelings getting in the way - POSITIVE POSITIVE POSITIVE. x x

Mine is for the same reason no was 44 should ideally be 30 for IVF consultant said he would consider thirty five which is what I'm aiming for by middle of march. Down to 41 so only 6 more to go which is about 35 lbs and that's only for starters!!!!

A few reasons. I've just had a baby and want to try for another and don't want to listen to all the crap about bein overweight that I had to the first time round. Also my health and want to feel a lot more confident x

I'm doing it for me! Got fed up with my clothes getting tighter and getting out of breath. Also discovered I've got a thyroid problem so I've decided to sort myself out before it gets all out of hand :)

I am doing it because i have a colostomy and i struggle with hernia's and pain. Not eating food helps so much with the pain and losing weight will help my next operation which is to correct my hernia's. Being slimmer will help the operation to be successful with no need to re-peat it. I have had many operations since having my colostomy 8 years ago but none have completely worked so hoping my next one will because i will be slimmer......

I am doing it as my bmi is severely over weight and that gave me a real wake up call. I also feel my biological clock is ticking and would love to be pregnant in 2012 and be at a healthy weight to conceive and throughout.

I'm doing this because (this sounds sad probably) I really want to be attractive and find a girlfriend :) I also want to feel happy with how I look and I just don't wanna be fat anymore.

Doing this to look better for myself and be more confident going out. Everything that comes up my first thought is what will I wear.
I hate people seeing me like this and keep imagining what they must be saying about me.

Just want to feel normal for a change, sick of worrying about lots os things, will there be enough room in a restaurant for people to walk past, can i fasten the seat belt on a plane, the list of anxieties goes on and on !
would love to walk into a room and think that people were talking about how good i looked rather than how overweight i am,
We will all get there with some dedication, Ive come to a point in my mind where I am completley ready for a change so I think this is why im not struggling too much, as they say mind over matter.
I have changed my outlook that the shakes are the fuel my body needs to keep functioning, all the other food is unecessary, I didnt eat because I was hungry I justed wanted to eat the wrong things because they taste nice !
