Why I want to lose weight

One of the biggest challenges to overcome in my weight loss project is staying motivated. The first days are always easy. I remember how bad I felt when I saw those numbers on the scale or when trying things on that don't fit anymore, I have a strict plan to follow, and my energy is boosted from having made the decision and I am full of confidence I can make it. After a couple of days motivation falls, and it falls quickly. It starts with me already feeling a tiny bit thinner - losing water weight goes quickly. Then I start allowing myself to relax my strict rules - I'm already seeing some results, hey. Finally I forget how bad I felt that day on the scale. And I think that I am actually doing quite well now.

So to stop myself from forgetting why I am doing this, here it is black on white.

The reasons why I want to lose weight:
- I feel heavy
- I look thick in jeans and I can't wear certain types of fashion because of my weight
- I think people judge me because of my weight
- My face looks round and swollen
- My eating habits irregular and unhealthy
- My old jeans don't fit and I am now buying larger sizes...

I just realized all of these reasons are extremely subjective. I had to struggle to come up with some objective reasons - my clothes size. This must be why I lose motivation so quickly. As soon as something more important or urgent comes along, like work, my weight loss reasons become less important and I re-prioritize. I need to find reasons that are waterproof even in stressful situations..!
