    hello everyone, i was just wondering what top 3 reasons everyone has for losing weight or 3 things they want when they lose weight?

    for me it has to be:

    1. To be able to graduate at a size 12 and have an amazing dress for my ball!
    2. To not feel out of breath walking uphill or running up the stairs
    3. To be a mega sexy wifey and yummy mummy!
    I feel that wanting these things will keep me going, all i need to remember is that Rome wasn't built in a day!

    Do I have to pick 3 lol i wrote out about 30-40 reasons a while back lol but my top 3 are

    1) To feel comfortable within myself
    2) To finally stop worrying about my weight
    3) To never have my daughters see their mummy struggling with weight issues which may impact on them

    I'm very conscious that I am my daughters role model, so i want them so see a happy person, contented in her skin, eating heathly and enjoying life. Not someone worrying about her weight and hating her figure.

    There is a 4) which is be a sexy wife which i have to add lol

    1) So I'm not singled out/remembered as "the fat one".
    2) To be healthy.
    3) And who knows, maybe one day I won't hate myself quite so much.

    Ooo for me number 1 is to be a yummy mummy! Number 2 is to not look so huge as a bridesmaid next year next to the 2 other size 0 maids! And number 3 just to prove to myself I can do it as I've tried an failed a million times before!

    This is a good thread

    1) To take my sons swimming without being an embarrassment/embarrassed

    2) To feel good about myself and look good - for myself mainly but also for my hubby - he's sick of me covering up after being together almost 10 years!

    3) To fit into size 12's is a dream for me and I would love to get there - I've never been a size 12!
