I have so many things to motivate me right now. It's almost hard to focus on just one. So I decided throughout this challenge to focus on one motivating factor a week. I can easily come up with 12. This week I am focusing on the fact that I will be on a beach in Panama with my husband in one month. I do not want to look or feel like a beached whale. I have piled on 10 pounds this year and I feel more determined to stick with this. I don't want this weight anymore. It's just not healthy physically or mentally. I got my dad to be my buddy, even though he is in a different timezone, we can push each other. Normally what happens is I stick with it for 3 weeks and then fall off the bandwagon, lose the motivation, lose the will. The will is the hardest thing for me. I have to keep using the motivation. So, this week, when I want that late snack, when I want that piece of chocolate, when I want that burger, I just think of a beached whale. Totally turns my appetite.
I will discuss my motivations each week in my journal. Thanks for sharing yours!
