    Question time peeps...

    Why do you want to loose weight?

    I want to loose weight to get into my wedding dress i have just ordered at least 2 sizes smaller. (no pressure, purchased yesterday and wedding September this year!)

    I want to loose weight so i can run, rather than walk with my children around the park and have fun.

    I want to loose weight because its about time i started looking after ME as well as the rest of the family.

    Over to you guys and girls........

    Good on you hun! How exciting... what is your dress like?

    I am a first time mummy to a little boy who is now 9 months old. I need to shift the baby weight as I can't use "just had a baby" as my excuse anymore he he he. I need to shift the lbs so I feel like me again, I have a big wardrobe of clothes that I can't fit into and I want to feel good for the summer :)

    I want to lose weight for health reasons, as there's a histoey of diabetes in my family. My doctor recently said I was obese, so I knew I had to do something.

    I had a blood test a couple of weeks ago to test for diabetes as my family have a long history of this too. I was gobsmaked to find i am not at risk and i was "normal" Even cholesterol and iron. Blood test was cos i was knackered and had headaches all the time. Doctor said i was just a busy mum of 3 children.

    i think thats the important thing you get from rc, you stop looking at things as a quick fix and start looking further forward because you feel like your changing the way you do things.my body and outlook on food is so different now i'm just healthier in general.

    I want to loose weight as I would like to buy a size 12 jeans ans wear them with pride! I don't wanna be super slim or like a WAG but to be confident in what I wear! I have had 3 children 1 in my teens - 1 in my twentys and 1 in my thirties - I want to sit down and not tuck my flabby tummy down into my trousers or adjust my muffin top ! I'm just under 13 st now and will get there ... One day at a time xxx

    I want to lose weight to get back in all the clothes I bought when I got to target weight a few years ago - things like jeans and tops that don't date.
    I was 15 and half stone and got down to 10 doing RC on my own out of her books.
    Bought lots and lots of clothes but over this last year have got too complacent and put on a stone now my clothes are too tight and I feel overweight as well.
    It is coming off before any more weight goes on.

    I want to learn how to eat properly i.e portion control when on sw i'd pile my plate or bowl to the rim with pasta or free food i struggled to realise when i was satisfied and not stuffed:rolleyes:.
    I want to fit into my size 12 skinny jeans and feel good for me and not because im always worried what people might think.
    i have a family wedding to go to in july i want to be at target by then and know i can treat myself and having learnt i can have a day of track without the feeling ive blown the whole week.
    Blimey reading that back i sound obsest lol:D

    I was 6 1/2 stone untill i was 18 and had my son then i just balloned and have never quite managed t be really happy with my weight.

    I have lost weight and stayed that way or over 2 years but yet again itts crept back on. I had my youngest daughter 2 years agao and i have struggled since then.

    I have a wardrobe full of lovely clothes i ant get into. I live in 2 pairs of jeans and a few t shirts because i refuse to buy the next size up. I desperatly want to be slim again.

    We are going to tenerife in december and i want to feel good about wearing a bikini, not for anyone else, just for me.
