Post by Maressa Brown A friend of mine wants to lose 10 pounds before the end of June. Although she's already slim, the weight she wants to shed has nothing to do with reaching her goal weight or making her doctor happier. Nope! She fully admits it's all about looking better than her sister-in-law at her niece's wedding! Ha! Gotta love her candor, but when she admitted this, it really got me thinking about what motivates our weight loss goals.
