Become Motivated to Reach Your Goal

Standard

Stories abound of individuals who lack the motivation to work towards weight loss and a healthier life style. There are so many pitfalls like the ease of eating poor foods (can you say McDonalds?), the sugar rush that you have come to know and love (Sometimes I really want a Snickers Ice Cream Bar), and let us not forget the taste factor. We have been trained from birth to prefer the taste of processed foods and sugars which make it tremendously hard to accept a diet. Good health always starts with food and can never include the types of chemical foods we have been raised to want. So, of course, motivation plays a large part. No one can make you chose to lose weight or change your diet. You have to find the desire within yourself or you will fall flat on your face.

So you may be asking where on earth that kind of desire could come from. Well let me tell you, it is there. You just have to open your eyes to it. Another blog I happened upon decided to start with the dictionary, quoting the definition of motivate. Of course the steps to finding motivation then stem from this definition, including my personal favorite. Having a goal. You will get no where without a goal and a want for something more, something better. You would not even be reading this article if you did not want something better for yourself. So what do you want? Is it a prettier body? better sleep? an easier time clothes shopping? improved personal hygene? energy? Maybe your are kept from a favorite hobby, or you are simply tired of the questions and stares. There is always my very favorite- and I could never fault the questioner- of how far along you are! Start with what you want and work from there. You may want to simply look slimmer or you may want to reach a certain weight or you just want to eat foods that will provide a better and lasting energy. Once you are sure of what you want you can move on from there to make a plan.motivate

About leisatwatkins

In May 2011, I hit an all time low in my life and an all time high in my weight. I was 199 pounds and the idea of hitting 200 scared me. I had tried every known diet, HCG, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Atkins, the grapefruit diet. I'd even tried Phen-phen when I was younger and Dexatrim before that. While I'd lose a little weight, I would always gain it back and then more. I knew the yo-yo dieting was not healthy for my body and it was definitely wreaking havoc on my mental wellness. I didn't know what to do and I was looking into taking drastic surgical measures to lose weight. That's when a friend of mine told me his story about losing over 200 pounds without pills, surgery, or starving himself. Not only did he lose the weight, but he kept it off. What did I have to lose? I asked him to share the secret with me. Now, only six short months later, I weigh 140 lbs and am working on losing 5 more. That will put me back to my weight that I was in HS, college, and before I had children. And I've done it with my friend's help as my Health Coach, without starving or even exercising, although I love to walk everyday. I haven't felt hungry at all in this process. How many "diets" can say that? I feel fantastic! I've felt great since the first week on this program. Let me be very clear about this. This is NOT a diet. This is not something you do for a little while, lose the weight, then go back to your old eating habits. This program is a life changing plan to help you eat healthier, make food choices that are tailored to your body, and bring you to a state of optimal physical health. If like me, you are tired of diets that don't work, then let me show you a life style plan that does.
