True Motivation

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Spark Coach wants me to analyze what my true motivations are for losing weight.

Maybe I'm shallow, but I want to be thin. I can break that down better: I want to feel good in clothing -not have it pinch and pull or sag in the wrong spots because it's so big to fit on others. I want to fit in the student desks at school. I want to have my boobs stick out farther than my belly does. I want to see my toes when I look down. I don't want to lift my belly fat up to clean underneath it in the shower.

I want to have less pressure on my joints. I have arthritis and the extra weight makes my body even more painful.

I want to look better than my husbands ex. (I said I may be shallow)

I want to reduce my risk of heart attack . I'm already lowering my cholesterol , but I will celebrate the day my hip to waist ratio is no longer a risk for heart attack. I can think of better ways to die...

I want to honor my body by eating in a more healthful and conscious way. I no longer want to be greedy and eat myself sick. And I want to honor it by exercising it, toning it, giving it more "fun time" and less desk time.

I want to look, feel and be healthy.

    Not shallow at all. We all want to look good and feel good. I don't expect to look 30 again but an attractive 65 would be nice. Nice clothes is a great motivator for me.

    We are just given the exercise and it's suggested that we blog it to maybe motivate others and to really express our thoughts. I'm loving SparkCoach. It's daily motivational training - and I think it's a helpful concept that motivation isn't "just there" - it needs to be cultivated. I've failed in the past and this time I truly want to change my life.

    Not at all shallow. I too want to be a normal size for myself first, and you covered many of the same issues I would have have considered. We remember when, and we remember that it is possible. Do you submit your list to the Coach or does she just have you do this as an exercise? I am glad you did blog it. Thank you for a lovely and motivating post!
