Do You Really Want to Carry This Around??

As I was putting my free weights away today, I was thinking how heavy they were. I used to carry more weight than that on my body ALL THE TIME! Crazy, isn't it? So next time you feel yourself slipping, pick up some free weights and ask yourself, do you want to carry this around all the time?

Fear

Some of the reasons I try and stay trim, exercise and eat healthy is because of fear. Fear of not having a good quality of life. Fear of having to take pills. Fear of becoming a diabetic. Fear of a stroke or heart attack.

Find Your True Motivation and Don't Forget It!

Name your motivation. My motivation is the fact that both my parents passed away at 49 years of age. I am 47, they are my motivation to get healthy. If I keep them in mind, I can overcome any obstacle.

The Journey

Weight loss is a journey. It is not always a direct route. Sometimes there are detours, u-turns and pit stops. What matters is that you get back on the road to your destination. On a long journey you'll occasionally get lost, don't beat yourself up. Know that you will get there.

Visualising myself in a Bikini

I keep visualising myself in a bikini on holiday looking and feeling sexy and toned, I think this everytime I reach for nasty foods or want to stop exercising because its getting too hard.

Motivation through others

One of the things that always motivates me is to watch or hear of someone else's success. I especially feel encouraged when the story is about someone who beats the odds and despite his or her unique obstacles goes on to experience incredible success. It makes me ask myself "What am I waiting for?"
