"Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly." --Stephen R. Covey
The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it." --John Maxwell
I can relate with the first motivational quote. I will get all fired up when I see others that are losing weight, or when I feel so fat that I hate myself. Then something will happen and put out my fire. It could be as little as my foot hurting, feeling sorry for myself, or getting mad! I just can not find the answer any more. My husband offered to pay for me to go back to weight watchers but I am scared I will fail and I turned him down. I am suppose to be working on the 90 day challenge with my friends on facebook and they are on day 17 and I have not really even began. I am sitting here thinking about how fat I am and how bad I feel. I can hardly breath, my fat pants are tight, and I am scared that my blood pressure is going up and that I could have an heart attack. I know these things should be motivational enough but... I just can not make my heart and mind get on the same page. I really need advice or someone or something to kick my ass!!!
