How do you stay motivated and find inspiration to stick with your program?
Life has blips. Never give up. Keep your eye on the prize. Keep moving forward.
Knowing is not enough, you must apply. Willing is not enough, you must do. Nothing can be accomplished, if you aren't willing to work.
It is good to have goals and dreams to which we can aspire, but they shouldn't rob us of where we are, right here, right now. Life changes aren't 'out there,' they begin with the very next thought, the very next step, the very next bite.
Just a month ago everything was TOO TIGHT. Now, more and more of the things I try on fit! :)
Surround yourself with images of where you want to go and where you came from, to remind yourself of your goal and just how far you have come so far. This works for everything from weight loss to saving money for that holiday vacation.
Yoda said, "There is no try only do." So quit saying you'll try and just do it. :)
More smiles lead to better health maintenance
What are YOUR reasons for losing weight? Your kid, you'll feel better, what? Don't let this be because someone called you fat or someone else thinks differently about you. You are a special person, and your reasons for losing weight should be your own, not someone else's idea.
In the war between water and rock, water wins. This is an example of persistence. No matter what happens, if you keep trying and keep moving forward, you will win.
Find the things that bring you joy and make it your job to do at least one a day. Happiness is the greatest weight loss aid there is! When you are happy you tend to stay motivated to do whatever you wish to accomplish!
