I have many, not in any order:

To be able to shop in regular high street shops (not 16+ range)
To be healthy and be around for as long as possible for my children
To be able to fit into all the rides at Alton Towers (ashamed to say I couldn't last time I went)
To look in the mirror and feel reasonably happy with what I see
To be able to get undressed in front of my partner...with the lights ON!
To be able to look at photographs of myself and not want to rip them up before anyone else can see them!

All the above plus:

So I can sit in chairs with arms and not be squished!

Walk through planes/coaches face on instead of sideways!

Attract admiring glances instead of pity/disgust!

Not be the fat one in my group of friends!

What a great thread.

I'd like to wear the clothes I like and not just whatever random rubbish fits.

God I can associate with everything everyone says!!!

For me I suppose I am here to try to feel better about myself and to regain a hold on life which I seem to have lost.

I gained all this weight in the last year and a half after something horrible happened my family. I found it difficult to cope with everything after that and I guess I became lethargic and uninterested in life and ate to comfort myself and to relieve the stress. I woke up one day and realised that I had gained 4 stone in what seemed to be overnight. In reality it was steadily creeping up on me and I wasnt watching.

So I suppose I am trying to loose weight to be confident, outgoing, a better mother and wife, fun to be around and to take back control of my life.

Oh and to not be fat in all my family photos!!! That too!!!

Wow, what a great thread! So here are some of mine, very raw reasons why I need & want to loose weight:

- I want to get married & have kids (right now I can't even bring myself to look at men, cause am so ashamed of letting myself down this much!)
- I want to wear my stunning orange mini dress at least once more (it's tiny....)
- I want to walk and feel my thigh muscles stretching with every step (yes, I know that I will also need to exercise once I loose at least half of my weight)
- I want to go out most of the evenings/weekends & meet friends & people (I can't bring myself to do that now cause am so self conscious)
- I want to walk my mums dog, in my birth town and really enjoy myself, instead of being holed up in my parents home cause am too ashamed of my body to actually go out
- I want to wear summery clothes when it's searing hot outside, instead of wearing layers to cover myself up....
- and lastly, I want to feel & be healthy, lively & energetic for the rest of my life!!!!

I wanna live!!!!! Not just survive!

We all want the same things, don't we? I can agree with everyhting you've all said, plus:
I want to be able to enjoy my life again, instead of finding excuses not to go out because I never have anything nice to wear.
I can't wait to be able to shop for clothes anywhere I want! Instead of Evans and plus size shops!
I have a beautiful horse I have only sat on once for one minute because I'm scared I will hurt her back. She was born with me and is five now. I'd love to ride her and enjoy some 'me' time instead of watching someone else have all the fun.
My gorgeous husband loves me whatever size I am, but I'd love for people to envy him his wife, instead of pitying him for being stuck with a fat lump. I'd love to feel sexy for him again.
I don't want my daughter to be teased for having a fat mummy, and to be able to do the parents race at sports day without collapsing after 10 yards!
Think thats enough 'I wants' for now.
Come on everyone, we CAN get what we want! :D
