    My motivation for losing weight is for a holiday of a lifetime to America in July. The thought of fat thighs rubbing together really spurs me on to stick to my diet. Does anyone else have any other reason???

    I've been on a diet most of my life as I have always struggled with my weight as I love my food. I used to do it for myself 100% and I still do in someway or another, mainly because I want to look and feel good in fashionable clothes, but my main reason which I know it shouldnt be, is to prove to my bf that I can do this and I will be slim. I know even though he doesnt say it, that he looks at me and doesnt think I'm sexy or sometimes I dont think he even fancies me, that hurts and this I promise to myself will be my last time to prove to him and everyone else that makes comments about my weight shove it in their face!

    have always had a weight problem. would always put a stone on and then be able to lose it no problem. but 5 years ago had alot going on in my life, moved house, hubby and daughter suffer with depression and have had breakdowns. so my life was focused on looking after them, with the result i have put on 3 stone :eek: i also suffer with arthritis, so decided this year was for me to do something about getting the weight off :eek:

    Great thread- I'm losing weight to be a good role model for my daughters, so I can reduce the risk of nasty diseases, to have more energy, to feel comfortable on holiday, to feel like 'me' again!

    I am going on as cruise in January and I would like to be at goal, I have just worked it out and I need to loose 1lb per week. That is very achievable. I have lost 2 1/2 stone since last June and I haven't been this small in about 10 years :))))

    main reason is to stop feeling so awful about my size, and get my confidence back, other reason is because of the bad back I USED to get when walking with all this weight, I want to enjoy shopping with my daughter instead of dreading it cos I know I can't do the whole walking and standing for hrs.

    My motivation is our holiday booked for September to Lanzorote, want to feel good in my clothes and not have all the worries about needing a seat belt extender (never needed one yet, just dread it) and to be able to go to theme parks and to know I can fit on the roads instead of pretending I'm scared :(
