Mimi,
Each and everything you mentioned are excellent motivators. I believe you nailed it with health.
In my opinion, ( I always seem to have one), health is what allows us to do the things we want, and provides us with the choices we have in life. You describe well the method. emoticon

Great question, Teresa.

My health is number one on the list.
I like to set short and long term goals. I know exactly what needs to be done to achieve these goals.

Sometimes the brain (mind) knows exactly what to do, but the heart (emotions) is in the way......

Because I've played the YoYo game all my life, except this time around, my brain tells me to never give up, and do the best I can.
I never want to go back! That is simply not an option!!!

I have a picture with my highest weight ever, and next to it, me at goal weight. I love looking at it.

Back to being healthy. Number one motivator!




I'll celebrate 10 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2014!

I agree, you will never be able to maintain any program 100% That is one reason I really like the emphasis of small changes making a difference. The 80%-20% of Spark is a good rule of thumb. However, no matter how long it takes you to feel a need for change, it is possible to begin at any moment.
You have an excellent motivation. The desire for independence is one of the greatest motivators. emoticon
I wish you the best as you pursue your chosen life goals.

Teresa

It is hard to feel 100% on any program all the time. The times when my motivation needs a shove, I see myself in this wheelchair for the rest of my life.

I want to be mobile again so I give myself a push.

What motivates you to change your behaviors when they are not meeting your goal?
