My list of reasons to lose weight. Ok so they're mostly vain and related to looks but so what! Because I'm still young I haven't had any health issues related to weight (yet) and besides I've gone my whole life without ever feeling I look good so why wouldn't I want too. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! :P

Listy - in no particular order.

  • I want to run into old friends and have them not recognise me anymore in a good way, unlike now.
  • So I can actually get in contact with old friends without worrying they're going to ask to meet up. (I have actually avoided contacting people I dearly miss from school years mostly because I don't want them to see how big I've become over the years).
  • So my boobs stick out further than my tummy
  • So I can be healthy!
  • And fit!
  • Maybe even be desirable to people other than those with a fetish.
  • So that I am not the fattest person where ever I go.
  • I don't want to use my weight as a reason for not being successful anymore.
  • I want to wear cute dresses!
  • So I can have a bath, comfortably.
  • So that I stop making excuses not to socialise.
  • I want people to not be so shocked to see my siblings because they're all skinny and I'm the fat one.
  • I want to walk into any clothing store and be able to buy something that fits and looks nice.
  • So I can wear the fashion I love.
  • So people aren't surprised to learn I love fashion!
  • I want to wear boots!
  • So I have to find something else to blame for everything sucky in my life.
  • I want to travel overseas and not worry about prejudice from 'skinny' countries
  • So when anyone looks at me I don't automatically think they're thinking how gross I am.
  • So I can go to the gym whenever I want and not have to hide from the hot people
  • So I can finally go to university and not worry about missing out
  • So I can go to a job or a job interview and not think everyone is judging my fatness
  • So people don't judge me as a lazy person just from looking at me
  • So I don't get drive by fat comments
  • So I can be comfortable
  • So I can't say I'm still struggling with my weight! I want to WIN the battle!
  • So I can weigh myself and see double digits! I haven't seen those for many years..
  • So I don't have to cover the machines at the gym when I enter my weight.
  • I want to be one of those annoying people who's happy in their own skin!
  • To be able to go to the doctor and not worry about getting a lecture.
  • So I can enjoy life!
  • So I feel like I have the slightest hope of finding a partner one day.
  • So when I tell people I'm trying to lose weight they say I really don't need to instead of "good for you".
  • So I can eat in public and not feel judged
  • So I can comfortably wear high heels! (well.. as comfortable as it can be)
  • So I can wear jeans and cute t-shirts!
  • And shorts! And skirts! And anything besides what I wear now!
  • I never want anyone to say I'd be so ______ if I lost weight.
  • So I can exercise just to get fit and strong, not just to lose weight
  • So I can wear cute gym clothes!
  • So I can put photo's of myself on my facebook account
  • So, for the first time in my life I can simply maintain my weight and not worry about losing weight

That's about all for now. I feel like I could go on for days and I probably could but it's getting a little long. They're all true as well. I'll have to come look at it next time I'm having a bad day and feel like reaching for the chocolate! ..Mm.. chocolate. Damn it!

This is why I'm here, I want to change my life! And I really feel like I can this time. I won't be another statistic of weight loss failures.


  1. Great list Jessie. I too could have rattled on for days and days with my list. We can do it!!

  2. Great reasons! I am going to make this list too!

  3. Thanks! It actually worked to. Today at the supermarket while eyeing the chocolates I ran through a few points of my list in my head and turned away :D
