Hi all! Please tell us what you do to stay motivated. After all, we will be here for a while and motivation is key to staying on this journey until the end when we reach our goal!
I'll start things off....
My motivation comes from my family. I want to be around for my daughter when she graduates, gets married and has a family. My father died at age 45 of a massive heart attack after not taking care of himself. This was before I graduated, got married and had a family. So I'm learning to make "being healthy" a priority.
Also, watching the number on the scales and tape measure go down are great incentives too.
