Here are a few ideas from me, can anyone add anymore to help us all stay motivated...

You look forward to going out because you can wear stylish clothes.

You feel more comfortable in your own skin.

You can put on a pair of jeans and a t shirt and look great!

You really enjoy what you eat because you have a healthy appetite.

You are better company because you feel better about yourself!

You generally feel better phtsically and mentally and don't feel down because you scoffed a pile of biscuits.

Your moods are more even

You want to go out in the summer rather than stay in because you have nothing to wear

You can go swimming without feeling self conscious

You have more energy to just go out and do stuff

You can run around after your children.

You don't worry that you are setting them a bad example by eating rubbish (and you don't binge in another room where they can't see you!)

You enjoy buying clothes!

And putting on make up is fun.

Your dh can pick you up!!!

You no longer get a rash under your boobs or chafing on your inner thighs during hot weather (not that there's been much of that lately)
Your feet and ankles no longer swell up in hot weather
You can slip in and out of seats on the bus
You can climb up the stairs on the bus (and feel like you're a kid again)
You feel lightfooted and graceful instead of lumbering and clumsy
You can get small size clothes from 'normal' shops, in the styles you like, instead of just choosing the 1st thing that actually fits or covers up as much of your body as possible.
I love being a normal weight and size.I am never ever going to allow myself to gain weight again.

Your posture is so much better!

alligatorpie I agree about that! I actually regained an inch in height through exercising.
