    I'm a little embarrassed to add this one. But I'm getting married in October and I want to be one of those trophy wives. I want other men to be envious of my husband. And other women to be envious of me.
    There, I said it. Lol.

    Not stupid at all. Trophy wife is a life goal every woman should have :D Okay me. I would love it lol

    I have a cupboard full of size 8 clothes that my (current) size 14 *kitten* is just dying to get back into.

    This. I have 3 bags of clothes that refuse to get rid of, they're in perfect shape and cost way too much.

    I actually have quite a few petty reasons and legit reasons, but I'll list the petty

    1. I have a boss that is like a vain female version of Michael Scott from "The Office". It's ridiculous how vain she is and makes people feel bad for not looking "healthy" to her. It infuriates me and she says a lot of really dumb *kitten* and loves attention. I would just love to be able to take some of that attention away from her just to piss her off (not that I want the attention).
    2. Not being ignored by bartenders when other girls go up after me and get service before I do.
    3. So I can stop being insecure and get my damn confidence back. (I guess that's more legit than petty lol idk)

    I don't want to look like a soccer mom, when I'm not, even though I'm getting up there in age.

    This is about as petty as it gets, LOL.

    I started out for health reasons. Just out of school I weighed in at 135. But after decades of bad eating habits, the scales were tipping at 210. Normal weight range for my height is 126-168. Yeah something needed to be done, heh :wink:

    I'm down to 165-170 range (depending on time of day) and feeling healthy again, so there is that, YAY!

    Now for the petty part/reason: I've set my new/current goal at 155lbs, to coincide with an upcoming 55th birthday.
    This would put me very lean but still with some muscle definition.
    I have to say though, seems no matter what I do, those last 10 pounds just will NOT come off. Very frustrated :neutral:
