It sounds like you've found some reasons to be motivated!
Good luck reaching your goals!

I'm new here, so please bear with me...
I've been in this "in-between rut" for the past four years. I'm certainly not at the heaviest I've been (after my daughter was born six years ago), but I'm certainly not at my best either (junior year of college, four years ago, I was in love...). I haven't been happy with my body, but it hasn't done me wrong either. I'm sort of in the "in-between", the "I don't look heavy" but "I'm not fit either". This entire summer, I didn't get into a swimsuit once, and absolutely didn't even put a bikini out for motivation. It wasn't going to happen. I sat around, feeling sorry for myself, while all of my friends went out swimming, went boating, soaked up the sun. And of course, in bikinis.
I'm tired of being "second string" when I go out with my girlfriends. I want to go out, with full confidence, knowing that I look good. This is my motivation, to look good, to feel good, to finally have that "I wish I had your figure" body back! And I know I can do it, as long as I can stay motivated. I tend to get started, then two weeks in, without seeing or feeling enough change, I give up and start eating poorly again, and stop exercising regularly.
This is why I'm here. To get motivated. To stay motivated. To meet people who are right here with me. To help them, and to get help from them.
WIsh me luck!!
