    5.be able to buy a Wonder Bra :)
    6.Buy knee high boots.
    7.Wear a dress/skirt
    8.get more compliments from people.
    9.For me to be the one getting chatted up on a night out with the girls instead of them!
    10.to wear high heel shoes and not have them kill my feet.

    my reasons to lose weight are:

    - to like myself again
    - to enjoy shopping instead of crying in changing rooms
    - 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 .......

    - to have another baby!!!!!!!!!!

    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!!

    This is such a good one!! Mine are:

    To feel more confident in myself;
    To look good for my husband and kids;
    Have more energy to play with my kids;
    To enjoy clothes shopping;
    To be able to pick up any size 12/14 and know it will fit without even having to try it on;
    To not be the fat friend any more :(
    To know that when my husband says he fancies me, I can believe it;
