“To succeed you need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you.” – Tony Dorsett
Nobody knows better than you what you want and why you want it.
There can be no better
It is not a matter of right and wrong. It is a matter of what feels good for you. It has to be a perfect fit. It has to be yours. You are the one to have the idea, you are the one to take the decision for your own personal reasons.
One day I decided that’s it. I am not compromising any more, no more excuses, no more extra weight. The first priority was to shred the extra weight. It wasn’t something to be taken care of at a later time, it had to be now. I made a choice to start losing weight right now.
I knew I would have to make a few chances in my nutrition and my daily schedule. I had to make plans for the future me. I tackle my weight management as a project with goals and milestones.
But most important I stay motivated all day long. I have reminder everywhere and especially in the kitchen. It is so easy to forget.
But I do not want to forget because I want to wear this cute pair of trousers that is just waiting for me: a size 10. My husband writes me “love letters” on the biscuit box and leaves special messages every where in the kitchen.
It is all a matter of choice. I focus on my weight management and on my health. I indulge myself from time to time but in very small portions and I enjoy every bite. I enjoy it even more than before, because it is done on purpose and not as a habit. I do not feel any guilt at all.
I am constantly aware of my goal. I have reminders everywhere: on my computer, my schedule, even my mobile reminds me when needed. I use all the tools at my disposition to stay motivated. I write on Post-it and leave them on my desk, in my bathroom, on the fridge and everywhere in the kitchen.
I plan my meals; I schedule my workout and accept all the support I can get. I try to stay away from negativity.
