I never really mentioned why at this particular time in my life I decided to really get serious about losing weight. I can look back now and see that there were times in the past that I was so afraid of failing or gaining it all back that I was afraid to try. It was easier just to keep the weight on and accept my weight than looking like I failed. This time I had a strong motivation. My precious niece. She is getting married soon and I do not want to be the fat aunt at the wedding. I want to go shopping and buy a cute dress, not just something I can fit into. I want to dance at her wedding and not sweat like a middle age women in menopause. I know that might seem silly to some of you but for me it was real motivation. It’s good to get motivated by someone or something. A special event, an upcoming vacation, or maybe you just want to fit into a certain size that you always felt your best in. Find your motivation, get started and don’t let fear hold you back.
