Question of the Week: What Motivates You?

By Laura Moncur @ 9:48 am — Filed under:

There were times in my life that I only felt motivated to diet if I felt bad about myself. Something would click in my mind and I would start being disgusted with myself. It seemed like the only way that I ever would be willing to go on a diet was when I was so unhappy with the way that I looked that I was calling myself names at all times. I called this “motivation.”

The reason why I had a hard time following diets is because I was starving myself. Sure, it’s hard to follow a diet when you’re starving yourself. When I took a much more relaxed and loving attitude with myself, I was able to eat healthy without the name-calling.

How do you motivate yourself to eat healthy and exercise?

What do you do to keep yourself on track?

Is being on track difficult?

If it is, do you think it’s because of the program or do you blame yourself?

There were so many times when I would demean myself and call myself lazy for not following a diet plan that was INSANE. It was the diet plan, not me that was the problem.
