The picture on my desktop of my computer is me in a swimsuit at the beach last year…my son took it…he was on the beach and my husband and 2 daughters are walking in the water…it’s really a good picture composition wise…but all I see is my large arms and behind…this is motivation for me…this may not be motivation for everyone but for me when I close all my open windows and see that picture…I seriously do not want to go and dig in the pantry or open the fridge!! What kind of motivation do you use?

no it’s more than that…I need to be healthy…I need to do something to increase the energy I have, decrease the joint pain I have and by golly feel good about putting on a pair of jeans! Don’t hear me wrong…I do not expect to become a twig in a t-shirt dress…I just want to be a normal healty size…I’m not trying to be a runway model or wear a size 0…I’m not trying to be a teenager…but a healthy grown up. One thing I really need is motivation…I want all these things listed above and don’t really have the motivation to go after those things…so I’m gonna blog about it…I’m also not a very good blogger so hopefully this will kill 2 birds with one stone…I’ll blog more often and recording my weight loss triumphs and woes and pictures (ugh!) will hopefully motivate me to continue on…I am a girl and so I don’t really want to post my weight…but I do want to lose 100 LBS so I’ll record the loss of them without posting my acutal weight…suffice it to say…it’s a lot…I saw myself all the way around the other day in a dressing room and let me tell you that was some motivation…hmm, I guess I need to keep that image in my mind…as well as the look on my face when I saw my behind! Anyhoo…here’s me…sending this out there in to the wild blue webbness…100 lbs…I suppose I should set a time limit…maybe 10 lbs per month? I don’t know…I’ll go do some research and let you know the next time…til then…step away from your computer and do something good for your heart…
