    Im sure this has been asked loads but I just wanted to outline my reasons to give my motivation a boost, and I thought some other people might like to do the same.

    • To feel and look fit slim and healthy
    • To be confident going swimming with my boys
    • To wear gorgeous clothes and feel good in them
    • So ill always look forward to meeting friends/social occasions instead of dreading them
    • To generally feel happy in my own skin

    • To look good on my first holiday with my boyfriend.
    • To be fit and healthy in the hope of maintaining for the next three/four years when i'll start thinking about children.
    • To be a healthy weight for when I start medical school as i believe you should set a good example to patients in that sort of setting.
    • To feel good in lingerie.

    *To feel more confident and be able to wear the things I like in shops not only the things that fit me and don't look like a tent! I am going to really treat myself when I hit target!
    *To feel healthy and alert - not tired and achey like I can sometimes feel
    *To look a million dollars at my graduation ball and on my graduation pictures
    *To look good on the beach and not worry about my lumps and bumps
    *To feel sexy whilst still being curvy and womanly

    - To go shopping and have the choice to wear what ever i want without having to trawl around 1,000,000 times to find something suitable.

    - To be more confident in myself and around others.
    - To do something i've been waiting over 2 years on..i'll not go into it.
    - To prove to others that it is possible.

    1. So that I can shop easier, and don't always have to go for the largest size in the shop!
    2. I want to feel confident in sexy underwear / during sex
    3. So that I can feel comfortable on the other side of the camera, instead of hiding whenever anybody wants to take my picture, or spending 10 minutes deleting photos from my friends' cameras until i find a decent angle!
    4. I want to stop annoying my lovely boyfriend with my insecurities. Being chubby upsets my self-esteem and I want to be happier for his sake, it can't be fun being around somebody who is insecure all the time.
    5. I want to wear SLEEVELESS TOPS AND DRESSES! (this may never look good on me as I'm top heavy, but at least I'll know I tried!)
    6. I have PCOS, losing weight will reduce the severity of the symptoms.
