Motivation for Motivate

Saturday, November 19, 2011

My health was my first motivation to lose weight. I had kept my cholesterol and blood pressure in check for years in spite of overeating because of all the walking I do. But age caught up with me. Once I started losing weight I would have to say that success and feeling better about myself are great motivators. I'm still trying to find motivation to get rid of this last 15 pounds. Seems to have been pretty elusive these past several years.

    age???? say it ain't so!!!!
    I've heard tell the last 10-15 pounds can be the hardest! You've done good, gotten healthier - and you can make it through the homestretch! you rock!

    Jet, I've been stuck for a while and then the new injury (now six months past) made things worse. If I can't move, I don't lose. FInally, it has started to come off again. I changed my goals, took the pressure off and started my five a day routine. I try very hard to eat five servings of veggies a day.

    I use to think I had to lose 50........now I know I just have to lose 5........at a time.

    Jet: You can and will do it. I admire how much exercise you get in and how much you do. Don't give up.
