People have a variety of reasons to lose weight.
Most often it's to look and feel more attractive. Maybe for a wedding or exotic trip. For the summer "bikini" season. Maybe it's fear of losing a job.
When starting anything, you're going to think about the pros for doing it and the cons of not doing it.
But since many people are in the "instant gratification" mode - the "I WANT IT YESTERDAY!" group - it's easy for them to lose sight of the pros of sticking with it.
If you've failed at the weight loss game in the past, try this idea on for size: write out a pros/cons "balance sheet" for losing weight.
Take a sheet of paper and divide it into 4 squares. The first two squares going across will have "Pros of Losing Weight" in one and "Cons of Losing Weight." The bottom two squares will have "Pros of NOT Losing Weight" and "Cons of NOT Losing Weight."
