Well. I would love to eliminate the chronic pain I have in my knees from surgeries... but a symptom of obesity that bothers me is just the fatigue and low energy levels I have. I feel like my confidence has also dwindled a lot. I am not as confident in myself as I used to be. 

I would love to be able to have confidence in myself and not care or think about what other people think of me.

@becomingbetter I have joint pain too, it's really debilitating. I guess for me it would be that, because I feel like i'm in a never-ending cycle. My knees hurt because of my weight, but because of my joint pain I can't really exercise. It's really frustrating. I feel like if that went away I could get a better handle on my weight and diabetes.

I wish there was less stigma out there about bigger people. I know with the body positive movement there's been a lot of progress, but I still get nasty looks from people when I go to the grocery store or sit down in the waiting area at my doctor's office. I wish that would change.

I really need to find ways to feel motivated to get up and move. I know that when I don't move it's because I am feeling bad about myself; low energy depressed, tired etc. I also know that if I can find the motivation to start I will feel better and therein lies the problem for me, Is it depression? Is it obesity? Is it related to changes in my BS?
