What motivates you? Tales From 100# Down

Thursday, February 20, 2014

Motivation is an essential part of this journey. Without it we often remain in the land of "status quo" . I like to think of motivation as a catalyst. Since my days of being 350+ I always "wanted" to be thinner but I was lacking the catalyst to get me going!

As I have shared with you recently I'm trying to get off my zig/zag plateau. I've strung TWO great days together and hope to make it three tomorrow. It's funny how small things motivate us. Here are some things that motivated me this week.

1) I have a doctors appt. in mid-March. I want to register a loss on the scale since my last visit in December.

2) Pictures - I was cleaning my desktop this week and found a stack of old pictures when I was heavier. It made me realize how far I HAVE come and makes me want to get more off.

3) Spring - NO - it's not spring yet . We still have feet of snow out there but March isn't too far away and it will begin to moderate some and I want to buy my new spring clothes in a size smaller than last spring!

4) Mindset - this is a strange one but it hit me today. "I" am the one that decides when I eat, when I exercise, how much effort I give. I can give more or give less. I'm going to choose MORE!

So - what's motivating you? Find something to be the catalyst to push you to ACTION and get going!
