- to be more healthy
- to feel confident
- to be able to wear high heel shoes again
- so I can buy clothes I actually like rather than ones that hide my tummy
- to be able to wear sexy underwear
- to be able to wear little summer dresses
- so people dont judge me
- to be able to actually look at my reflection in shop windows

and finally .......

1) to not be shopping in Evans anymore (sorry Evans but your a rip off)

2) to see a nice small number on the scales

Those were my two main things :D

Have accomplished both..almost lol

Ooo reasons to do this:

1. Set a good example re food and nutrition to my children.
2. So my children do not grow up with a Mum that always wears black.
3. So my children do not see me on life support in ICU following a triple heart bypass, like i did with my Mum.
4. To lower my cholesterol.
5. Avoid type 2 diabetes, which my Mum got!
6. Feel good about myself.
7. Enjoy every mouthful of food I eat rather than be on automantic pilot.
8. To look good in my doctorate graduation photo, unlike my masters and first degree!
9. To not take up so much room in bed and thereby not get so squashed when the children get in!
10. Enjoy shopping for clothes rather than avoid it!
plus many more!!
