Well, I’ve been overweight for most of my life, at least what I can remember. I’ve always been the biggest one in whatever group of friends I’m in, and I hate not being able to keep up with my friends I have now, who I think are the best friends I could ask for. They are very supportive (although their constant diet of Chinese takeout and McDonald’s doesn’t help).
My reason is not solely to become more attractive, although it does honestly come into play a little bit. But that’s not my real motivator. I want to keep up with my friends, actually, outstrip them if we happen to go rock climbing or running or ice skating or whatever it is. I want to buy cute clothes to WEAR, not just hang in the closet. I want to set a good example. I want to live my life for as long as possible. And enjoy it to the full extent.
