As part of the challenge I have entered we have to give 5 people who are behind our motivation. Yesterday, I gave the example of the my friend as motivation who is not happy that I am losing and she appears to be gaining what I lose. When she said there is no way your smaller than me! that is because I never have been smaller than her. It was a great feeling and I am turning that comment into inspiration to continue to lose and get even smaller than her!
The second person who motivates me every opportunity I get to see him, is the man I am dating. He has dropped probably fifty pounds through just walking and altering his diet.(ugh if it were only so easy for me!) He looks amazing and makes me want to do better and stay on track!
I could list all the people on Spark and that would easily cover my five but everyone here is truly motivating to see that we all have the common goal of being healthier for whatever the reason, it is a wonderful feeling to not feel alone.
Another motivator is my mirror, so I guess it would be myself. I had not looked in a full length mirror in a very long time and now I am almost daily(it is very very tough for me to do). It is tough to do, but seeing my pants get baggier and stomach not sticking out past my bra that is pure motivation.
the last motivator is smaller than me but larger than life to me. My son. I want to be there to watch him graduate, get married, become a grandma, a great grandma. He is only 9 and the only way to be the best parent I can be is to get healthy.
wow, that is not mentioning the wonderful support group that watches over me here at work. I have food allergies that have recently been diagnosed and have rebelled and turned to junk food and they are my champions by showing me foods that I can choose and helping me understanding the new world I have to accept.
Have a great everyone!
