What's your reason - and be honest!

I kind of stumbled upon this fabulous site and am amazed that there are so many people on here doing so many different diets, and it's great that i'm not alone.

It did get me thinking though, obviously I know why I want to lose weight, I hate being fat and even though i'm a grown up, people still use my size against me, it's pathetic, but enough to spur me into doing something about it. And I cant wait until I see those horrible people again once I am slim so they can marvel at how wonderful I look!

But I wonder, what is everyone elses reason for dieting........? What actually spurred you into it this time? and be honest!!!

(I'm going to post this on as many boards as I can to try and get answers from people doing all the different diets, i'll let you know the outcome!)

Im doing it because in December i dont want to look like one of the dancing hippos from fantasia in my wedding dress
I'm doing it for my kids. I want them to be proud of me and not ashamed. I want to be able to do stuff with them and not be out of breath. My husband has quit smoking and we are all trying to make an effort with the healthy eating and going outside for walks more. I also tore my cartilage in my knee last year when I went on the kids' trampoline and was told by the doc to lose weight as it would help, which it has. I still have a long way to go but I am loving weight watchers (have always done slimming world in the past) I love the variety and even though the weight isn't coming off as fast I feel so much better in myself.
