    Hey All,

    Thought I'd start a thread listing the 'Reasons to lose weight' and see how long it will grow.

    Thought it would be a good thing to read through when we're having a bad day, moment and may help us Jan starters - well I know it will help me for sure.

    Please cut and paste, then add any of your own reasons.


    1. Increased Confidence
    2. Fit into all those clothes again
    2. Feel fitter and healthier
    3. Wear that summer dress and not that black t-shirt that covers all my bits lol
    4. Walk into a shop and not bother to look at the sizes, as I know they'll have it in my size and it will look 'good on me' LOL!
