My Mojo

Motivation is the one key to successful weight loss.  If your head is in the right place, the rest will follow.

When I started WW back in 2010, my head was in the right place.  I don't know why it was, as I had thought of joining WW for sometime but always talked myself out of it, but one day it just clicked.

After I made lifetime and the weight came back, I can't tell you how many times I rejoined WW.  I knew I needed to do it, I knew I could do it, but the motivation just wasn't there.

That's where I've been since I rejoined WW this last time in 2015 (2-1/2 years ago).  I pay, go to meetings and don't do the program.  I've lost and relost the same 5-10 lbs over and over.  I'm not the only one struggling with this.

Last week was the first time in ions that I've had any true motivation.  Again, I can't really tell you where it came from but this meme put it in motion:

I saw it and saw myself in it.  Maybe, just maybe....motivation wasn't the issue, maybe just maybe all the excuses were.  I can relate to every excuse on this page, EVERY SINGLE ONE.   "I'm all alone" is probably at the bottom because I have very good family, friend and WW group support, so I'm not alone......but weight loss is an individual thing and you can feel alone because I know I do at times.

I printed this meme out and have hung it on my bulletin board at work and on the refrigerator at home; I'll probably hang it a few more places.  There isn't a day that one of these thoughts does not go through my head.....but I see this and tell myself it's nothing more than an excuse - I CAN DO THIS!
