I've decided to find out what motivates me.
What's drives you forward? What inspires you to reach your goal?
I have just been reading an article in a magazine that I bought and it was talking about what drives you to lose weight. The 'carrot' part of the article was a bit lacking!
The thing driving me forward is being able to wear the clothes I want and to look good in them.
Being able to do ballet (which is hard on your knees at the best of times, but with 50lbs extra on your knees oh boy!!!)
Being healthy is a big factor for me as well.
Well - I hate clothes shopping, looking in those mirrors in the dressing room! Thinking to yourself did I really come out looking like this! Maybe that's just me!
I'm in my thirties and my knees crack (not good!)
Then there is the if you're fat you're going to get just about every disease known to mankind (at least it feels like that when you read the papers / watch the news.
Wondering 'would I have a partner if I were slimmer'! That's a big one for me.
If you have any good carrots or sticks let me know.
