    I want to wear giant sweaters that swallow me for that cute "boyfriend" look. Pair it with some skinny jeans or long shorts.

    Yes!

    I started working out for the energy, the weight loss was a bonus. But I am pushing it farther for the following reasons:
    1) to stick it to some *itches in my life that treat me like they are better. I used to be so much prettier than them, then my weight gain tipped things in their favor. I want it back.
    2) I miss it when my husband and I first married and people would say "THAT'S YOUR WIFE?" Both my husband and I got a kick out of it and I would like that reaction again.
    3) to tighten my mom pooch as much as possible. I know I am supposed to be proud of my stretch marks, and while I am grateful to my body for giving me my perfect babies, I dont want the pregnant pooch anymore. My personal preference.
    4) to occasionally get hit on. I am happily married but nothing feeds the ego like having a stranger pay that compliment.
    5) To motivate my husband to lose some weight. He tends to follow my lead on weight gain and loss. He looks great to me as is but I worry about him being too sedentary and long term health issues with that. I need my best friend for the long haul. This one isnt really petty, just important.

    Yes, I also miss the "wow! That's your wife?!?" Reaction. It was a confidence boost

    Mine is I just want to look more attractive and confident in my body. Wear sexy clothes and a bikini to the beach. My boyfriend says I look beautiful either way and he loves my body, but I really have a hard time believing it. I'm very insecure, and to be honest I'm afraid that even if I lose all the extra pounds and tone up my body I would still not be satisfied with myself.

    This is exactly me and how I feel. I have a boyfriend who is literally a toothpick and he calls me beautiful and says he is so attractive to me but I always doubt it.
