Trying to lose weight and struggling which is getting me down. In my head I constantly list the reasons I need to lose weight. Thought I'd put it down in writing.

My joints hurt (my knees kill me every time I stand up) and I'm not that old
I want to be a good role model for my children
I want to be around for my children!
I don't fit into any clothes
The clothes I do wear are baggy, cheap, stretchy and generally awful
I refuse to buy new clothes because I don't want to admit to the dress size I should be
I want to have more energy and not feel so knackered all the time
I don't want food (chocolate) to rule my life anymore
I want to exercise without feeling like I'll die
I don't want to be embarrassed when my husband walks in on me changing
I'd like to go swimming with my daughters (won't be seen in a swim suit)
My back aches and I think the weight must be a factor
I don't want to bump into old friends/family and feel embarrassed about how bit I now am
I want to start horse riding again
I want to be able to play with my children without huffing and puffing

I could go on rather depressingly!

I love clothes and the single one thing that would make me enjoy them more is weighing less.

I don't even care if that is shallow.

Good luck with your weight loss OP

I want to feel in control of my life

The pain in your knees will go away when you lose weight.

My knees are nadgered.
Only by staying light do I avoid major surgery.
Do it.
Just do it.
Once your knees no longer hurt you will feel like a new you.

The rest of it is all secondary.
Not being in pain is just wonderful.
Promise thanks
