What is your "Petty" Reason to Lose Weight?

    Part of it's to get back to to the size I was when I knew I would never have to settle because I could have pretty well anyone I set my sites on.

    Part of it is to to a physical representation of how much better I've become since leaving my ex.

    To be hotter than the dude's baby mama :neutral:

    To fit back in to the clothes I grew out of! ( and then shrink out of them as I get to my actual goal. I got really close to a healthy weight 3 years ago but let it slip, quite a bit, in the order of 20+lb)

    Honestly, I want to have hot sex with the lights on and not worry about what I look like.

    If they're having sex with you, they think you're hot and aren't worried about any of your "flaws." Don't worry gorgeous, you don't need to lose weight to give them a show!

    I'm lifting my tail off for multiple reasons, but some of my petty reasons are looking athletic for the first time in my life, being able to wear hot/sexy outfits, and keeping up with my sister/friends who are all in fantastic shape. I was always the "fat" one, and that is no longer the case. I also feel like I have to keep up with my husband who is easily the most attractive man of all our friends/family. I want to look like I belong by his side.

    I want my boobs to shrink. No idea how much they will, but it's worth a try, right? If only spot reduction was real...

    Seriously? That’s my nightmare come true!😱 I’m so worried I’ll go beyond and never get them 🥥 🥥 back!😭 that’s my good fat 🤣
    I normally wouldn’t post something like that but decided, “What the hell!” It’s the truth! 😉

    I know what you mean. Try candles! Also, have you seen “I feel pretty” on Netflix? So funny! If you haven’t go watch it while you go on the treadmill. 😂

    My petty reason is that a doctor said I couldn't.

    Seriously, I was referred to an orthopedist of all people, and he said "Let's be real, you're never going to lose the weight" and offered me a card for his friend that does WLS.

    From my primary care doctor who knows me and has charted my progress and knows that although I'm heavy I have no blood pressures/diabetes/pre-diabetes issues, and that I gained the last bit of weight during an extremely difficult period while I was on medication and had untreated hypothyroidism, I WANT to be able to have a discussion about my weight. With the guy who is supposed to tell me if I need ankle surgery who also has a physique like Santa Claus himself?

    Not so much.

    What a terrible and unprofessional physician. It’s infuriating to read this. They probably feel disgusting about themselves to actually say something like this. Continue your journey and show them!

    I like feeling beautiful for myself.
    There is no way to word this without being conceited, but I'm a union carpenter and a waitress and soon to be a bartender... so I'm constantly getting hit on, numbers, etc... and it's very uncomfortable mostly because I dont see my beauty for myself. And I want to re-create that space. I lost 77 lbs last year and felt beautiful. And then I regained 35 of it because I let the stress of living in a bad relationship take over... now I'm 8 lbs of that down and still going and so excited to start glowing again 💕

    Oh man how i agree with you. I actually lost 55lbs and maintained it for 2 years. I've gained 25 lbs back due when i got in a relationship. I just don't feel i have the confidence i did back then. I felt beautiful, strong, and healthy. I want heads to turn when I strut my stuff. hahah or at least a glance.
