    Just wanted to start a positive threat for all of us to see what people what to achieve and do when they get to their desired weight loss / clothes size.

    Be a good example to me children
    feel fit and be healthy again
    feel confident
    not self conscious
    to wear designer clothes again (best start saving)
    go skiing with the family
    go swimming

    Be really interested in your thoughts on how you see themselves as you get near to your ideal.

    Have a great week everyone.

    I would love to be able to wear skinny jeans. I hardly ever wear trousers as very conscious about my bum and thighs, so wearing jeans confidently would be great. X

    Now I am in my 40s I am conscious that I can no longer get away with being overweight. Things are aching and the health risks are greater. Whilst watching Strictly Come Dancing last year I was struck how how different Pamela Stephenson and Felicity Kendal were to Anne Widdicombe and thought to myself that if I carry on like I am I will be like her when I am in my 60s and that now is the time to decide what I want to be.

    Oh, and I want to be a size 10 :D

    I want to be able to wear skirts and pretty dresses (my legs are currently like tree trunks) but most of all I want to feel confident with my new body and be able to go swimming, to a spa, or water park or even on the beach in a bikini

    I've realised I care less about the actual pounds and more bout being happy with my mirror reflection. So id like:

    - To get to size 8 (if maintainable, if not id be happy with a long term 10)
    - Healthy for my height (sort of already achieved)
    - Fit back into my lovely old clothes!
    - Confident to smile at the camera rather than a 'pout' (Which sucks my cheeks in!)
    - Realising I can be happy and treat myself to non-edible things, to the point I don't see a doughnut as a rewarding treat!

    I'd love to actually look at a picture of myself without thinking how HUMONGOUS I look.
    I want to look half decent in a suit at my sister's wedding.
    I want to be confident enough to use the showers at the local gym.

    I'd love to walk around in summer full of confidence, that'd be fantastic! I think I'd achieve that by being happier with myself and feeling pride for coming so far. There's so many success stories on here which just make you carry on. :)

    I want to be able to walk into a shop and buy something nice, not head straight for the plus size section because I know it'll be easier to find something there.
