    I'm trying to start up a little scrapbook that I can take everywhere with me so that I can take it out for motivation if I need to when I'm feeling a bit weak, or down or just want te focus myself for the path I want to continue down.

    On some of the first pages I would like to compile a list (not necessarily finite) of reasons I am doing this - and thought it might be nice to share them so we look back, either when we need to, or when we have achieved them so we can feel proud. :D

    So, I'll start with -

    To be as healthy as I can possibly be

    my own! Gym and eating properly
    great thread julie!

    my reasons;-

    I wasn't always a fattie, I used to be slim and toned. I was actually very happy with my weight for some years. And then I met my fiance, Craig, where I became very comfortable and let my self go...

    Now, I just want to get it back. I hate the way fat people are treated differently... in shops, restaurants, walking down the street, in the gym, swimming pool wherever...

    I managed to loose a decent amount of weight about 2years ago and the bitchy girls in the office where I worked started saying "ooh, thats a nice top Lacey, where did u get it?" and "hi Lacey, do you wonna come out on Saturday night??" and I'd be like, "er, I've this top ages, how come u didn't notice it before??" And "thanks for the invite to skinny girls club night out but how come I wasn't invited when i was a fatty??"

    I'd been working there 6months before I lost any weight, and not once had a girl passed a compliment on my clothes and certainly not invited me out on a night out..

    Anyway basically I just want to be slim, healthy and not be addicted to fatty, sugary foods and just be happy. :)

    I dont want my weight to get in the way of me leading my life anymore.

    Thanks julie for the great thread (again!!)
