What was your motivation to lose weight?
I thought it would be neat to share each other motivation on what caused us to want to lose weight.
Was it self motorvation?
Was it your family?
Was it guys?
Was it cause everyone was talking about you?
When I got laid off from my job last year, it gave me some time to think. There was a picture taken of the group of people I worked with that I was going to miss. When I got that picture, I thought to myself good grief. Am I really that big?, I went to weigh myself and found I was a whopping 257LB. Good grief, I thought, this had to stop. I'm a single girl and I never had problems getting attention from guys until the last two years or so. I have never realized I have gotten so fat. I do admit, I got started off losing weight for all the wrong reasons, GUYS!!!, but it got me started. I watched a neighbor of mine while I was losing weight and she was losing weight for her mate, she lost alot of weight for a year and when her mate left out of her life, she was gaining back, I stopped and think, How losing weight for someone else was a bad idea. I thought about my neighbor, How she said why lose weight at all when you are going to lose them anyway. While I was on this weight losing journey, taking pictures for every 10Lb I lose, I can see that I was looking different, better looking, how I felt great when I walked, how I felt more confident about myself the more I lose, how just breathing felt great, and best of all, I had this bad back pain that was hurting me real bad, I no longer have those back pains anymore. I decided from here on to love myself, to be conseded about it, if it made me sound conseded , so what, cause, I am getting that great looking girl back.So I changed my out look for myself, I'm not losing weight for someone elses benefit, I'm losing it for my benefit and boy budy, I feel great and looking great everyday and I will make my goal. Lost 30Lb 92 more Lb to go.
