Really for me.. it was just seeing the difference on the scale. When I first tried losing weight, it was in high school and I was at 192. The moment I saw my weight lowered into the 180's.. I knew it was possible. 130 seemed so far away, but looking towards smaller increments like every 10 was what made it easier. When I lost my first 20 and saw the difference in my body, that's when I just KNEW that I could do it... that's when I knew that the first few lbs weren't just a fluke, I really understood that I could control my weight, and get smaller! Finally,I felt like I was in full control of my body.
Even now, after I gained back a lot of weight, I have no one else but me to blame, I wasn't watching my weight at all and I consciously put my weight in the back of my mind, but I know all isn't lost because I can take it off as well, this time I just have to keep monitoring my weight!
