For me, I think the thing that's worked is a major "attitude adjustment" that gives me a degree of acceptance.
I ACCEPT that there's no "magic bullet".
I ACCEPT that my journey will be slow, because my descent into this unhealthy state has been slow.
I ACCEPT that any small loss is a HUGE gain that takes me one step closer to my goal.
I ACCEPT that, this time, it must be a way of life and not just a detour.
I ACCEPT that I will fail at times, but that I have the ability to turn that failure into a lesson learned and, eventually, a success.
I ACCEPT the offers of help and support that I find here in abundance.
I ACCEPT that , ultimately, it's up to me and nobody can do it for me.
I ACCEPT that I am NOT deprived, but rather I'm PRIVILEDGED to have the opportunity to find the tools and information I need to get me where I want to go right here at no cost other than taking the time to use them.
I ACCEPT that this is the way it is...and this is the way it's going to be from now on.
I ACCEPT that, when I reach my goal I will NOT look like a twenty-year-old Bikini Babe because I'm NOT twenty years old and I wasn't a Bikini Babe when I WAS twenty years old!
In other words, the motivation you seek is all right there within yourself. You simply have to allow yourself to find it.
Laughing all the way,
