Motivation Is The Key

Motivation is the key to weight loss. At least for me, it is. So starting out again in a journey to re-lose 12 pounds that I picked up in pregnancy, it is time to reassess my key motivators for being a healthy weight. It is also a great time of the year to do this anyway.

- I feel much more outgoing, perhaps because I spend less time being self-conscious about how I look and what I am wearing, and pay more attention to the people around me.

- I have more energy! It is somewhat contradictory to think that less calories can equal more energy, but for me it does. I know this has a positive impact in multiple areas of my life, including my relationships and my work.

- I want to be a good example to others. I have a Little One and people around me to whom I might be an example, and I want to be a good one.

What are your key motivators?

You are disgusting! You only gained 12 lbs in pregnancy? I still have 20 to lose. :-P
I miss you! In the heterosexual, non-pervy way. XO
