Finding Motivation

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

I have really been struggling to stay motivated. I do good for a little and easily get off track. I was thinking back about things that helped me the first time. One thing that I have read here and there is to record the benefits/advantages of losing weight.

Advantages to weight loss....
1. Feel like myself when I am smaller
2. Have more energy
3. Have more enthusiasm about life
4. Easier to find clothes
5. More fun to buy clothes
6. My ring fits better
7. My ankle doesn't hurt
8. I don't have to worry about breaking chairs or fitting places
9. My kids won't have to have a fat mother
10. I have more self-confidence

    I know the feeling: doing well for a while and then falling off the band wagon....
But, you know what, every time you get back on, your motivation is higher and so you are a bit farther down the road to getting healthier. At least that's how I see it, and it really seems to work that way. The fact that you've started over and are blogging about it is very positive! I'm thinking that we're getting a new start for spring that will carry us forward!

No matter what the advantages of weight loss will be, don't forget that you're strong, beautiful, and AMAZING right now. Just keep taking it one day at a time, and know that each day you become even MORE amazing, and get a little closer to your goals. Some days will be harder than others, but you're worth the effort. You're not alone. We're all here with you!

    You can do this, Bonnie. It's not easy, but I know you can do this.
