Today I'm motivated by me ~~ I've done a lot better in the past and there's no reason why I can't do it again.

Thanks. It won't happen for at least a year (if not longer). We're still planning a wedding.

These two men that I know. One man in my gym, Mike, he is 60+ years old amputee who can outrun me in a heartbeat. That's what I want to be. He is absolutely the sweetest old man. Th other is Micah, also in his late 50's early 60's when I used to work he was my favorite patron. I would engrave a flask for him for every mountain he climbed with his son and his future daughter in law. Plus he competed in the Boston marathon 7 years running, no pun intended.
These men make me look at my asthmatic self and say - if they can, I can.

Is your inner voice a good friend or is it one that you wish would just stop calling you already?

Being around longer and being able to express myself more authentically in clothes as plus sized fashions a lot of times are not very chic. Lol. Unless you have a ton of money of course.

Small successes are motivating to me. At this point, just hitting the elliptical in the basement for 10 minutes is an achievement. Once I do that, I'm likely to pick up the dumbells for a little strength training. Making and drinking my spinach smoothie in the morning and knowing I'm doing something good for my body encourages me to do more, to continue to eat better. If I can simply string a few of these successes together, I might be able to get a streak going!

INSANITY is doing the same thing again and again and expecting different results. Can I bang my head against the wall some more?!?

Knowing that I did it once that I can do it again. I let the antipation of a new job drive my weight back up and 4.5 yrs later I haven't lost it but gained 20. I had my surgery on my shoulder, my son is off to college and I have my new life being myself. I don't want myself to stay fat. No one or job or thing should prevent me from doing this. No excuses, it's time.

Don't lose focus. Keep your eye on the prize and expect to get it even when others don't think you will.

I was just hired for the job of my dreams. I'm so crazy busy all day I have no time to leave to get junk food. It's the first job I've had in five years that is this hectic (in a good way!). As of late I just have no interest in fast food. I'm getting organized and considerably better with money!

My children, who have noticed my healthier lifestyle and followed along.
Now I know they are watching (in a good way).

My motivation right now is my sister. She is 10 years older than me, and has had 3 kids. We are the same height and have typically been the same weight for the last few years. Over the course of the last few years we have each gone back and forth in our weight loss and gain. Well my sister recently committed to a healthier lifestyle and conquered it with the help of Weight Watchers and her husband working out with her. My sister looks amazing and for someone about to be in her 40s with three kids I am thrilled.
It has motivated me though more than ever, as I am knocking on 30s door and I do not want to leave my 20s in the same back and forth that I have been fighting this last decade of my life. So here goes nothing! My new mantra #30before30 The goal to lose 30 pounds before I hit 30.. Here We GO!

Keesha


"If you must begin then go all the way, because if you begin and quit, the unfinished business you have left behind begins to haunt you all the time."
– Chogyam Trungpa


Goal: run 30 minutes every other day

Goal: 25/25/25 (pushups/crunches/squats) every day

Goal: Be mindful of my portion intake

Goal: Drink 8 glasses of water a day

Goal: Be happy with being me!

Seeing how others have a lot of problems because they did not stop making the simple bad decisions when they were younger. i work with people that can not walk 300-400 feet without having to take a break. or they can't have a surgery untill they loose weight because they have too much body fat in their arm so the doctor can't fix the joint problems in their elbow.

My pedometer motivates me. I set my goal for 8,000 steps and have exceeded that goal just about everyday. Today I made 15,000 steps. emoticon I really am proud of myself. I never in a million years thought I could get 8,000 steps and I made it and exceeded it. Now I have to change my goal steps and push to keep it going.

It used to be a desire to look good, because I have this ultimate goal of being an NFL cheerleader. That probably won't happen now that I have kids, but all the unexpected benefits keep me going! For example:
-i hardly get sick
-my skin is always clear
-i feel awesome, yet the world and media try to tell me happiness isn't for girls who are a size 10

I actually looked on tumblr and there are groups who are going through the same thing and support each other and that inspired me to create a page of my own to look at everyday

I'd describe my motivation as twofold:

1. Fear of relapse. I've made a lot of progress and what gets me out of bed at 4am to workout is fear of the slippery slope. That missing one day will lead to two, will lead to 30...

2. The desire to keep improving. I know I look good now, but I also know I can look better. I can do more pushups, more situps, hold a plank longer. I can bike faster, farther. I want to see just how awesome I can get with consistency and pushing myself to my limits.

What motivates me is remembering how great I feel after a work out, seeing others feel proud of me, remembering I will never fit back in my smaller clothes if I always let myself use excuses.

My favorite pair of skinny pants, the idea of feeling and looking healthy, and making sure that I stay smoke free- I will not give in over the weight thing. My boyfriend and the look in his eyes when I am taking good care of myself.
