Life Is What Happens to Us While We're Busy Making Plans

Motivation

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.

Do it for YOU

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.
