Serenity Prayer to the rescue!
Within your immediate environment, what is there over which you have control...?
Do you have oodles of healthy food choices and have you removed all the unhealthy food choices?
Are you drinking LOTS of water to curb your appetite?
Are you MOVING to stir your metabolism and hopefully resulting in curbing your appetite?
What else is under YOUR control, things that are YOUR choices...? Exercise that choice, that control...feel the power that comes from this!
Also, for me what helps is the negative motivator of: so if I just give up and eat what I want where will I be a year from now...? That usually shakes me out of the doldrums pretty quickly!
In your life, what are the things that excite you, light a fire under you? Think of ways to tie those into your health and wellness goals and you may tap into some motivation.
Also browse some of the "motivators" SparkPages! www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_motivate.asp
See if you can catch the SPARK from them...browse their blogs, see if some of their words can help PUSH you into wanting to take action!
Keep coming back and post your progress or LACK of progress...either way, posting will help to keep things moving forward for yourself!
