I would say my biggest motivation is that I want to look even better than I do now, to look sexy! :) Confession: my recent break-up is a huge motivator. And because I want to date again, I NEED to feel that confidence, and not feel like a blimp. Which makes me think: if I remained single would I remain thin??? ;) ha ha

My biggest motivator is that I want to be able to fit in my wedding dress; I don't want to be taking pictures and worrying about that fat, hanging from under my arm.

Also, I can't wait to look in the mirror and actually be happy with what I see. I miss those days!

My motivation is when I see my reflection I won't see the excess (clothes only conceal so much!), definitely MORE energy, lesson my back problems, and hopefully lower my cholestral.

My biggest motivations are:
(1) to continue with small changes I see--different size clothing, better energy levels, feeling full
(2) to be around and able to participate in the lives of my future grandchildren

Wow on your weight loss!! I've been struggling to go down one dress size for months with no luck!! I'm hoping sparkpeople is going to help me stay on course. I also love to eat out and my bf loves to eat out and bring home caloric treats on a nightly basis! I'm struggling to say no or to indulge only a little. But I have to keep my motivation clear and go back to it - it feels amazing when all of my clothes (instead of only loose dresses and stretchy things) actually fit easily. In fact, as fun as it is to shop when I'm smaller, it's almost not necessary because what I already own looks so great!

You got it right on the money! It's a great feeling to instead of a 20, you wear a 10! I laugh now because my shoe size & clothing size are the same number! Now I'd like to go down 1 more size to an 8, but of course I struggle, because I like to eat, especially go out.

I want to feel the confidance I feel when I'm at my best weight. It's such a wonderful feeling to wake up and put anything in my closet on and have it fit comfortably and look good, rather than rifling through for the things that conceal the bulges ;) It's like a daily shot of negativity to have to face my extra weight in this way every day! Plus shopping is so much more fun when I'm thinner!!

Diane,
I love children! They speak the truth and always see the beauty in things. Congrats on losing so much weight. You're an inspiration to me to keep going. My mom died four years ago as an obese woman feeling so much shame because of her size. She was such an incredible person and grandmother and the world lost a wonderful human being the day she died.
Losing weight is not only a gift to yourself but to your granddaughter as well. Have a great visit!
Tammy

My biggest motivation to say no is remembering that I don't want to hide from people I haven't seen in a long time. I'm tired of the shame associated with being overweight. I'm ready to be proud of my looks and feel good about who I am.

My son is a golfer. He says I have to do this the same way he plays golf, one hole at a time, which for me is one meal at a time. He's pretty smart for a 23 old lol

I am slowly changing habits , reading spark people , starting to exercise. I have a lot of weight to lose. My goal is to be able to feel good, want to walk and run and have fun instead of the weight holding me back. So I am very inspired by the people who have done sooo great with this wonderful site. You will see more of me. I have a walking partner slow like me, stopped eating in car, stopped buying candy bars every time I shopped, no goodies in the house and feel good about that. Today MY motivation is keeping up with my grand dUGHTER AT THE MALL.

My motivation is that according to the Spark Calculator when I joined, if I apply myself, I could be at my GOAL WEIGHT by my Brother-in-laws Birthday in March! March isn't that far away. Every time I think about caving into temptation, I think about how this will push back when I will reach goal!

Also, March is usually when K and I go on a vacation to Mexico or some place hot, where I will be required to where a bathing suit. I want to be fit and confident this time! Go TEAM!

My biggest motivation right now is the bone spur I have on my foot. I need to be good to my feet. They do so much for me. I'm on my feet for 8 hours a day at work. I depend on my feet for so much. I need to give them a break and take some of this extra weight off. It's going to be more difficult now that I'm dealing with the pain, but it is a MUST! emoticon



What if I woke up with only what I thanked God for yesterday?

I'll list 2 motivations
1) The SparkPeople book is launching December 29. I want to be as healthy as possible to get out and promote it - especially if we're able to get on top TV shows.

2) My two boys are always healthy motivators. I see them copying my exercise and also want to have enough energy to be a good Dad.

SparkCheers!
