    I don't want to die and am very ill and obese. That's my "petty" reason. What a ridiculous thread.

    that is me also. do not want to end up like my Dad did (heart disease, diabetes) and I was heading there!

    Yeah you're right, I do want to lose weight to be more healthy. But in all honestly I'm turning 30 within the next six months and I want to be viewed as the hot mom of two, I love when people look at me and be amazed that I'm 29, because they always think I'm younger so yeah being hot now and even hotter when I get older is my why.

    I have a closet full of rad vintage clothes that either don't fit anymore or dont look good on my thick waist. Also every time i go thrifting I find some amazing true 60s or 70s vintage dress that just... won't... zip.

    My boyfriend is 6ft 3" and in really good shape. I'm 5 ft 5" and squishy. I dont want people to look at us and think 'why is that guy with a dumpling?' Can't change the height difference but can get slim and toned!

    My husband is not toned by he is very thin. We were both thin in college and then I gained a lot of weight over the years. And my teenaged daughter is tiny. Even the dog is thin! All three of them eat as much as they want. I don’t like how I look in family pictures when I’m overweight.
    And clothes! Being able to wear a sheath dress with confidence.
    Diabetes prevention is my very sensible health reason, but it’s the petty stuff that oddly motivates me more in the moment.

    2 years ago I did a boudoir photo shoot. I want to have them redone when I hit goal. I want to be blown away by the difference.

    My ex cheated on me with a girl smaller than me. She's gained weight and I'm down almost 50 lbs.

    YES!! My ex husband cheated on me too. He is still with her. We are divorced. However, she is naturally paper thin and I will never be her size. BUT I can totally relate to what you feel

    I want my ex to eat his heart out.

    Yes this is what I think too. She cheated on me for a long time before the divorce was final. I want that jacked revenge bod.
    Would also be nice for some intimidation for when my oldest daughter starts dating.

    My petty reason is I don't want to be another "thick" girl my boyfriend has dated and I don't want anyone to think he settled for me. We have been together 3 years, through my graduating and in school full time while he was working. He doesn't cook or clean (it was the way we were both raised.) I still work full time while looking for a better job and he is only working part time until he gets promoted in a couple weeks.
    Plus when exes look at his Facebook and go, "I'm prettier than her right?" I want her friends to have to lie.

    My petty reason: You know the song "Jesse's Girl"?? I want to be (or at least feel like) her.
