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?"

Dress to Impress

Not just other people but yourself.... If your clothes are too big for you, dont wear them. You'll feel frumpy. Putting on a smaller size can be such a huge motivation. You have that voice in your head telling you 'I'm in a smaller size- the effort is paying off!.

Good day? Reward yourself. Bad day? Donate to charity

I have two accounts: one in which I deposit $ when I achieve my daily goals, and another in which I deposit $ when fall seriously short of my goals. The 1st account is used for a splurge - eg new earrings. The 2nd gets donated to charity periodically. Donating $ turns a bad day into a good one.
