I was thinking what is it that makes me want to loose? The first thing that comes to mind is family, followed by health reasons and then the last is for me. Now that I look at what I just wrote. Why did I put me last? Is it that we are always doing things for others before myself? I don't know the answer to that one.
I know for me family is a strong motivator as I want to be able to keep up with the grandchildren. I don't want to be the one that can keep up.
I know that I should be motivated for me but me just doesn't motivate me.
I get motivated when I see the health results from loosing and so does my doctor.
How do I get me to motivate me?
I look at myself in the mirror and say you are overweight do something about it. Nope that doesn't work. When I try on a new size of cloths that is smaller than the last size of cloths. Sometimes that works but sometimes it just doesn't get me going.
Having people say you have lost weight and you are looking great. It makes me feel good but you know something it really doesn't motivate me.
I guess what gets me motivated is that I am stubborn and when I decided it was time to get fit and healthy. It was more determination than motivation. So I could say I motivate me through stubborn determination. I won't give up no matter how many set backs I may have along the way.
