Back to reality, okay, motivation. Like I said watching Beyonce motivated me to be more active and get fit. She is in incredible shape and that's what I wanted for myself. As the quote says that I posted earlier by Zig Ziglar, "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing; that's why we recommend it daily." It's true, we all lose our motivation at times. My Inner Skinny Chick says: That is why it is so important for you to find that "thing" or "person" that will keep you going when the road gets rough.
In a Weight Watchers meeting that I led this week, I handed out straws to all of my members. I asked them to tell me what they thought the straw symbolized. They all came up with some very creative answers. I told them that I gave them the straws to symbolize their "last straw." Meaning, what was the last straw that made you decide you needed to do something about your health, lose weight, become more fit. You fill in the blank. They all began to tell me what the "last straw" was for them. Skinny Chick Challenge: Think about what "the last straw" was for you. Or have you reached it? Get a straw and keep it in a place where you will see it often. Every time you think that you want to give up or you feel as though your road is rough, look at that straw and remember where you were when you made the decision to change. This will motivate you to keep going so that you don't go back to that place.
