What is your number one motivator for losing weight right now?
I know we could all say to be healthier, feel better, look better, etc. But for YOU, if you're being honest...what is the ONE thing that motivates you more than anything else? What main goal do you want to achieve?
I have been going to the beach a lot lately and pool parties and I hate how I am now the big one in the group. I used to be the skinny one! I just want to look how I used to and when I run into people I haven't seen in a long time I want them to say "@$&@ she looks good!". For example, an ex of mine is going to be in a wedding I'm in, in just a couple months and a lot of people I went to high school with will be there too. So I want to look great in my dress. also, I want my DH to think hechas a hottie for a wife
i want my dh to think "hot d.a.m.n" when he sees me.....and to feel proud that i'm his wife. but i also want to eat healthy (most of the time) & exercise to feel good---have energy & a healthy relationship with food. oh---and my clothes fitting better is a big motivator too. i hate not knowing "oh are these jeans going to fit tight today or loose"....
there's a little more but i probably shouldn't post it here.
Gina, wife to Joe...mama to Nathan (8), Brady (7) and Chase (3)
For me, it is fitting into my clothes and/or looking good in my clothes. I hate that I have a closet full of clothes I can't wear. I also will not wear anything that clings to or accentuates my belly in any way. It depresses me that I can't just go in a clothing store and buy whatever I think looks cute, because I'm always thinking, "I can't wear that because of my belly," or whatever. And don't even get me started about my dressing room anxiety. I just want to be able to feel good about the way I look in clothes (or out of them) again!
