So today marks my ONE WEEK with fatsecret and I have met a lot of very nice and motivating woman! I have a question for my buddies that I came across from another Fatsecret buddy.......

What are your top 5 motivators for losing this weight that you can't do at your current weight?


Mine would be...
1. To be Healthier
2. To have energy to play with my son and husband
3. To get new clothes I like not ones that look "ok"
4. To be able to ride ALL the rides at the amusement park
5. To just be back to a size that will help me appreciate everything again, all this extra weight is killing more than my health it is killing my soul too

Wouldn't it be great if we could make a master list of "motivators" that we could all add to. Hey Mandie160 I agree with all of yours and would add

6. Be a great role model for my daughter and granddaughter.

1. Get healthy so I can have a healthy pregnancy
2. Stay healthy and fit for life
3. Be comfortable in my skin, with or without clothes, when appropriate Wink
4. Keep my cholesterol down (I got it down in the last 3 months to normal levels by doing Atkins and working out)
5. Wear a size 6 again. (almost there)

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!

Keep yourself busy so that you don't have time for a snack. If you really just want to eat something sweet or salty you can, but only in small amounts. Just think how bad you would feel afterwards ...
