    I needed this post….I was so motivated and then work and I stopped going to the gym……….time to get back in there. I must find motivation……one good one: finish what I started for once.

    Post wasn’t clear…….too excited about the motivation…..I was caught up working, and stopped going to the gym. I needed new motivation to finish what I started.

    I am going to make a goal to lose 10# for my Daughter and 10# for my son. Maybe 5 for her, then 5 for him, then 5 for her, and 5 for him. You know sibling jealousy, an all!

    So what you are saying is that I need to impregnate my girlfriend and do it for our family? 😉 Ha just kidding.

    I think it is important to do it for someone else, but don’t forget about your selfish personal reasons too. Being overweight, you are limited from the hobbies/activities you may participate in. Rightfully so, for safety issues obviously and not persecution of overweight people lol. Dancing, roller coasters, not paying $2 more for + sized clothing, some jobs, etc are all things obesity can limit you from doing.

    So do it for others, but don’t forget about your own reasons as well!

    You can do it. Even if you stop for a while, there is always tomorrow morning — better yet, there is always TODAY!

    I understand what you meant — it’s easy to get caught up in “life” so to speak, motivation is only one part of it. Even if you’re lacking motivation one day, just go to the gym anyway. Your body will thank you and you’ll know it’ll get you closer to your goals.

  9. Tyler says:

    That sounds like a good plan. They’ll appreciate it!

  10. Tyler says:

    The reasons are endless, as long as they actually motivate YOU that’s what’s important. Just get motivated by SOMETHING. I am motivated by my wife and daughter these days.

    My #1 reason for losing 100+ pounds was health related. I was pre-diabetic and had a mess of other health problems. I HAD to lose weight. I was 25 years old and 250+ pounds. Enough excuses!!

    I lost 110 pounds. Then I needed a new goal and it was more towards vanity…like wanting to tone up and look good in my new body. 🙂

    This statement “Some of us, as was one my motivating factors, want to lose just enough weight to be able to walk into a restaurant and sit in any seat in the house” hit me like a ton of bricks…. I’ve started losing weight (15 so far) but have a ways to go. Thanks for being soo open and honest about your weight loss journey. Its good to know that it IS possible. Here is to hoping that all of us who struggle have an amazing 2011!!
