I'm just about out of clothesthat fit properly. When I lose another 5 lbs I will have to go get some more clothes because most of mine are too baggy, loose and droopy.
I'm going shopping at second hand clothing stores so I can buy them as I continue going down in sizes.

What motivates me right now is fitting into a closet full of clothes that I could not wear before.

I think it is so easy to fall off the wagon because the old way is so comfortable and familiar for us. Our old ways are so much easier. Change is hard work.....it's challenging!! In addition to our everyday lives: work, family, shopping, finances, cooking, keeping house, school, care giving etc. we now have added this huge huge task of changing our lifestyle. When something has to give it is easier to let ourselves go because we can't let the other responsibilities in our life go. Or so we think. We can;t quit our jobs to make time for daily exercise. We have to help the kids with their homework so we don't have time to plan our meals. Can't ignore the dirty laundry to make out a healthy grocery list.

We have to give ourselves permission to allow a little time during each day for ourselves. It's not only ok to take care of yourself first but necessary.

Today I came back to read these posts because right now I am struggling with motivation.
Wonder why it is so easy to get off the healthy eating track

My husband. He's always reminding me to do my exercises. He makes the neatest salads for lunch and he does the shopping with me. No wonder we've been married for 55 years.

I am motivated by good reports on lab work. Cholosterol levels continue to be good. All blood tests came back good - I want to keep them at "normal"

I am motivated when I see the size tag on my clothes getting smaller and smaller. Then when I look in the mirror and see the difference I want to try even harder.

Spring coming gives me lots of motivation to get outdoors and soak up the sun while walking, biking, or working outside. There is something about that sun that just draws me outdoors.

I'm usually a hermit in the winter time.

the warmth of the sun motivates me, and seeing the scales show a drop in weight.

Lin from Peterborough, ON., Canada

10 STEPS TO SELF-CARE - If it feels wrong, don't do it; Say "exactly" what you mean; Don't be a people pleaser; Trust your instincts; Never speak bad about yourself; Never give up on your dreams; Don't be afraid to say "No"; Don't be afraid to say "Yes"; Be kind to yourself; Let go of what you can't control; Stay away from drama and negativity as much as possible.
