    I know slimming improves your health lots but if I'm really honest I am doing it more because I want to look good in the clothes I like.
    So being honest which is your inspiration??

    both, my kids are also a big factor. i dont want to be known as "the fat mum" when my little boy starts school next september. i find when i've got my newborn with me that it excuses it a little, but i've been this size since having my 3 year old lol. although stuck on plan through this pregnancy, really glad i havent got 2 lots of "baby baggage" to lose. x

    Yep, both for me too. And like most, its mainly for my kids. I would hate for them to be embarrassed by me! Also it feels fantastic being able to run around with them!

    To start with - vanity. After ruining one set of wedding photos for one brother - i wasn't going to do the same for the other brother's wedding a year later. since the weight has been coming off though - i'd say it's more about health now. Not just physical health but mental health as well. I love the new found confidence, i love the energy i've now got and i love the feeling of now living rather then existing.

    It's 40% for health and 60% for vanity. :eek: I have asthma and arthritis, both conditions require good weight control in order to keep healthy.

    To be honest it was completely for vanity. I've never really given 2 thoughts about health issues surrounding my weight. I know I probably should have but it's never been high in my priorities!

    I'd say in the past is was solely for vanity, but now it's definately a combination of the two. Not only does my body now resemble nothing more than a lump of squashed uncooked pastry, but I can feel the difference in my body. I can barely reach my feet, my stomach gets in the way if I bend over, my knees click, my shins hurt when I run, I get out of breath other next to nothing and absolutely everything wobbles!! I've got a wardrobe full of clothes I can't fit into, and I'm longing to go shopping for some nice clothes, but i'm not doing that till i know the clothes are in a size I want to keep!

    Anyway, they're my reasons for sticking to it this time, and I hope they're enough to keep me on track!
