I have found that my internal motivation has been almost nothing. Something wonderful has happened to me in the last few weeks. I have started a new relationship with an old friend and he has been encouraging me to be better to myself. I still have a long way to go...my weight is a mess and my fitness level has dropped but that is being turned around.
I want to be healthy and so I am starting over (so to speak). I am trying to make better food choices, do yoga when I can and walk as much as I can even if it means parking far from the store to get a few extra feet. My goal is to get back on track and take it slow. I know I will get there.
So now my motivation is to do the things that I would tell my patients to do (I'm studying to be an Osteopathic Doctor). I want people to come to my practice and see that I am healthy and focused and have made the changes that I needed to, so that they feel that I can help them as well.

I have been beating myself up about my weight for far too long and not making myself enough of a priority and recently some other emotional stresses have caused me to feel really sad and out of control in many ways so right now I have decided that I am going to do this no matter what. I need to do something that helps me remember that I more powerful than I give myself credit for and that I am absolutely worth it. I am down almost 8 lbs in 4 week .. good steady progress so far but I know there will be weeks that I think I am doing every thing right but the scale will not reflect that and I will just remind myself that I am buildingf muscle asnd muscle weighs more than fat but looks a hell of a lot better.

One day at a time .. best wishes to all .. Suzanne emoticon

My kids are my first and foremost motivation. Ever since I gained weight from medication, I have been very depressed about my weight. Being overweight was not something I knew before. I was always very thin, even after having children. Now, since I gained the weight from medication, I am having the hardest time losing the weight. My son tells me all the time that he loves me no matter what I look like, He says to do what I think is best for me. That is my motivation.

How do you stay motivated to stick to it even when the scale isn't your friend?

Does your family have an impact on your motivation levels? Or do you just want this for yourself?

For me I have been looking in the mirror for 20 years and wondering who the fat person is looking back at me. When I picture myself, I see the way I used to be and I feel that what I see in the mirror is a lie. I want to be able to look at myself in the mirror and see how my mind sees me. I want to be healthier than I am now so that I can live a long life watching my grandchildren grow up and marry and start families of their own.

Well that is what motivates me...my family and the memory of myself from years ago.
