Before even deciding what encouragement you need, I think it is more important to decide why you are here and what made you leave in the first place.
My biggest inspiration and encouragement is looking at me out of my screensaver. I am doing this health journey to be the best and healthiest aunt i can be. I eat clean, I exercise sure, but i do so much more than that. The little peanut wants me to play with him. He wants me to crawl around on the floor and chase him. Then he rewards me with the cutest smile and baby noises. Soon he will be making words. he inspires me to be at my best. I would so much rather sit on the couch and watch tv but i see his little face and know that won't get me to my goals.
I am here to obtain the ultimate-- health-- 100% function of body, mind and spirit. Weightloss and getting fit are secondary to the cause.
Really look into your mind and determine what you really want. Reach for the stars this time. Think of anything and everything that you want for yourself and make your plan.
Start slow. Come up with some daily goals. Some of mine are to stick with my meal plan, exercise 20 minutes a day, journal at least once a day even if it is only a sentence or two, read 1/2 hour a day, and repeat my affirmation for the day three times.
I am not saying it will be easy, I am not saying that it will be overly fun.
You won't get it by staring, wishing, drooling, hoping. You won't get it easy. You get it by getting off your butt and working for it every single second of every day for the rest of your life.
That said, good luck.
