I think once you definitively figure out how you feel about you weight and find that one reason to lose weight everything else will fall away. Honestly I have been overweight for as long as I remember and as I grew older I would want to lose weight but one of the things that kept me from sticking with it was how I actually felt about my body. Sometimes it was more of what my family and society felt than how I truly felt. I left high school a size 18 I think and I actually felt like if I had a boyfriend that truly loved me I could stand before him naked and feel alright. I changed in front of other women much smaller than me with very little hesitation. I was always faltering with weightloss because I did not want folks hovering around me that was never there before because now I was smaller. That would totally hurt my feelings and so that helped hinder me somewhat too. However someTHING changed. I won't go into that all right now but once I finally sat down and really listened to ME I became more focused. I actually did not work out for almost two months but because I wanted to stay the course I tried to maintain healthy eating choices and my helped too. As a result the scale stayed at a +3;-3 difference. I started back working out last week, I also have been juicing to reset myself and give myself a little boost of confidence. In the end these reasons that I spent time really truly meditating about made me not throw everything away because a voice in my head kept saying: you're not finished yet. Keep going.
