I think that there are a number of goals behind my desire to lose weight.
Improving my overall health is one of the main ones. Being told by the doctor that I am too heavy for her to prescribe the contraception I wanted was a bit of a wake up call. And there are a few other niggling little problems which I have, that I know would be cured if I can lose weight.
I am looking forward to being able to fit into the nice clothes that I always see in magazines and shops, but currently know that there is little point me even trying to find one in my size.
But most of all, as a student nurse and full time mother, I want to do this so that I can be more of a role model for others that I will encounter in my career. I want to show others that they reach their goals and make their own lives healthier and I want my children to be proud of me. I don't want my children to make the same poor decisions with regard to food and exercise that I have made, as I feel that the older we get, the more difficult it is to make the changes that need to be made.
My 30th birthday is coming up in July this year. I am looking forward to walking into a shop and being able to fit into and buy one of the sort of dresses that I like. I will not have reached my goal by then, but I will be on track to do just that.
