    Biggest reason of all to overcome my emotional problems which I'd linked to food.

    Other reasons are obviously, looking better, fitting into nice clothes, being healthy etc.

    I have been a model for over 2 years and although I have always been curvy the weight has been slowly creeping on, although this hasn't stopped me getting work I don't like the fact that I am now classed as a plus size model because I wear 12-14 jeans! :(

    I want to be more confident
    I want to be able to wear a skirt in the summer
    I want to be more sucessful with my modelling & get some publications
    I want to be healthy

    :)

    because Evans clothes are so boring at times, to feel better about myself ( I remember a time when guys used to wolf whistle at me), so my hubby can throw me around the bedroom like he used to back in the old days lol and for medical reasons (blood clots/over weight not a good combination)!!!

    I so agree about Evans, sometimes they are lovely but other times they are simply bland and old fashioned. Can't wait to get into Next sizes.:D

    - to get back into my pre-pregnancy clothes
    - to feel good about my figure again.
    - to feel more confident - really feel more confident when I'm Slimmer.
    - to like what I see in the mirror.

    To complete the Edinburgh Half Marathon Moonwalk in June comfortably. (A big incentive to get the weight off before then is the fact that this walk is done in a decorated bra, stomach on display...say no more)!

    And to then keep the weight off for my holiday in the Canaries, September.

    I'm sick of feeling down about myself and not making an effort because I feel i'm not worth it with the way I look. I'm fed up of walking around with my head down embarrassed because I wear crappy clothes and feeling like people are looking at me and laughing at how I look. I hate seeing all these gorgeous clothes and feeling like i'll never get to wear clothes like that again or regain my confidence in who I am and what I look like. I detest the fact that I never go anywhere or do anything so people don't see me and have constantly turned down parties, weddings and nights out because of how I look and feel. I want to be able to go swimming with my little boys on holiday in July this year and not feel embarassed.

    I'm just so sick of everything that my weight hinders me from doing and being and i'm fed up of hiding in the house and eating some more cause I feel so down. Time to do something about it now and lose the weight.
