    Just thought I would have a lookie round what you lubbly people want to do, stop, get when they get to/nearer goal?

    I wanted to stop pulling my top down over my tummy which now I know just draw more attention to it.... DER!!!!

    To look out the window and smile because it was sunny and hot, not wish for rain and wind so able to cover up.

    How ever little it is effects us big time..

    I hope we all get there and dissovle them :D

    Oooh good thread.

    For me I want to be able to wear sleeveless tops without worrying about my arms. I also want to be able to wear nice strappy summer dresses and not feel like a tent in them.

    Lastly for me I want to continue to grow my confidence and continue to eat clean and green food. It's the ONLY way forward for me now. I am never going back to where I was.

    This diet gets better and better the longer you are on it, the more things you find to eat that you enjoy and the more things you realise that you don't miss at all, one thing I don't miss is that feeling of being over full, I never get that anymore, I just feel satisfied after a meal, I am already doing stuff I had stopped doing, like playing 18 holes of Golf on Good Friday and then again 2 days later another 18 holes, I never would have done that before as I struggled to walk that far, sad but true, and I also will NEVER let myself get that way again.

    This is a good inspirational thread. When I get down to a size 12 I'd like to get married. I've been with the love of my life for eight years and engaged for two years, but - and this is awfully shallow, I know - I don't want to be a chunky bride. I just don't want to avoid looking at my wedding photos for the rest of my life, I don't want to look at them and feel bad about myself. I'd like to hang one on the wall and feel good every time I look at it!

    When I can fit back into the size 12 dress I wore to my brother's wedding in Italy back in 2005, the week before I started the chemotherapy (which is when I started putting on almost 3 stone), I will book the wedding date!

    You're very kind, Jim! I know deep down that the only thing that really matters on the day is the two of us and our vows, but... well, those photos do last forever!

    love all your goals - so inspiring.
    Well Im in the middle of applying for the Police so I HAVE to lose weight but I dont thihnk this diet is gruelling at all. And like hellraiser, I look frward to the yummy things I can eat as opposed to the things I cant. I dont miss bread or rice or pasta and I love to experiment with recipes of all allowable foods.
    I do allow myself to have advantage bars from atkins (phase 1 freindly) which I cut up and share over the day or even two days. They are my treat and lord knows I deserve a treat!
    If I can get into a size 14 by summer (Im 18-20 now) id be chuffed.

    I'm loving this thread! I want to get in a swimming pool with my 5 year old boy and 2 year old twin girls when we go on holiday in August and feel good. Have fun with them and my husband! Without being self-conscious. I feel really good and with support we all can do this!

    I want to feel good about myself again.
    I want to keep it off this time.
    I want to look good and feel comfortable in clothes again.
    I want to live a healthier lifestyle, forever, not until I have lost the weight, then eat it back on again :D

    Totally inspiring reading this. I hadn't thought about setting goals other than a target weight.

    My goal 1 - Is to get in the Swimming pool with my son age 5 and twins girls age 3 on our holiday and enjoy myself rather than worrying how I look.

    Goal 2 - Reach feel happy with my body and have a lot more fun with my kids and husband too!

    Goal 3 - That cute Summer frock in the back of the cupboard I'm going to wear it this summer

    These are now my goals - And I'm going to score!
