First off, congratulations on your decision to be a healthier and better you! Every day offers so many opportunities to do just that.
I have to say that I think you're adorable - I can't imagine that someone (much less 2 people) would tell you that they didn't see a future with you because of your weight, but I suppose some people are like that. Of course, always lose weight for yourself first and foremost, but I think you're on a good path by letting those turds motivate you into living better.
It's funny, I've been on this journey for well over a year now, but I still had to stop and think as to why exactly I want to lose weight. Thanks for the chance to refresh my memory.
1. To be healthier and stronger.
2. To feel 100% comfortable in my own skin.
3. To (eventually) have a body that shows my dedication to working out instead of my current one that covers up any (well, most) muscle definition with my chub-chub.
