New Found Motivation
Friday, January 20, 2017
When I was younger I was motivated by food, mostly sweets...oh, who am I kidding?
I was motivated by ALL foods.
After I started to lose weight I was motivated by seeing the scale go down each week.
Then I found myself being motivated by rewarding myself with items for every 10 pounds lost. Finally, the motivation to keep the weight off for these two years is being able to fit in to much smaller sizes.
These were sizes that I had never seen before. This still motivates me but not as much as it once did.
I have found a new motivator...beads.
My family bought me a Pandora bracelet for my 40th birthday. I was apprehensive at first about this but I went out to a local store and saw all of the beads and I seem to rather like them. I took a booklet home and circled all of the beads that I liked. Then it hit me...why not reward myself with a bead?! So that is what I have decided to do. I am trying to lose 10 pounds and as soon as I do I will reward myself with a bead.
