5 Motivators

Saturday, February 27, 2010

Here are some of the things that motivate me on this weight loss journey:

1) Grandchildren - I want to be around to play with them and enjoy watching them grow up. I only have 1 granddaughter right now.

2) Health - I am healthy on the whole, but my knees ache a lot and I am sure it is because of the weight. Just getting off the pounds will help that.

3) Mirror - being able to look in the mirror and not see the rolls of fat will be nice.

4) Clothes - I'm tired of having to buy plus size clothes. I have a closet full of nice clothes that I don't wear because I don't fit in them well.

5) Myself - I want to feel good about myself.

    If you haven't already you might want to print these and put them where you will see them. If you struggle with mindlessly grabbing food out of the fridge, post them up there is a great, in your face reminder. You are on the right road!

    Great motivators! (And as you get older -- as we all do -- the health will be even more important!)
