Where does your inspiration to lose weight come from? Is it someone you admire? Or is it something that you want to achieve? Being inspired in your quest to lose weight can be an important factor in reaching your goal weight. Let’s look at how this works.
Your Inspiration To Lose Weight
When you think about your inspiration, think about the reasons you want to lose weight. I mean really think deeply about it. These reasons could be a number of things. Let’s say, for example, you have no energy and feel like you are missing out on special moments with your family. Moments like playing with your kids or grandkids. Going for a romantic stroll with your spouse. When you picture these times, they feel special to you. You are inspired by moments you feel you are missing out on. These are times you want to have. You are inspired to have those times in your life. This kind of inspiration can be motivation for you. The motivation you need to lose weight, gain your energy back and experience those special moments.
Examples of Inspiration
These may be some sources of inspiration that you have. Maybe….just maybe you will discover some new forms of inspiration that will help you reach your pinnacle!
Inspired By Healthy Living
When you picture yourself living a healthy lifestyle, you see yourself eating healthy and nutritious foods that you enjoy and are fulfilling for you. You see yourself engaging in exercise that you truly enjoy. Feeling so much stronger! So much more energy and it makes you feel good emotionally too! You see yourself enjoying life and times with family and friends. A life that you are actively participating in. Healthy routines you’ve developed that are now on autopilot. You have a much more positive outlook on life and you know you are making it happen for yourself.
Getting healthy is probably the biggest reason people give for wanting to lose weight. Not only are people inspired to be a healthier, they also hold it as a personal value. You can read more about what it’s like to value your health in my article, “Your Personal Values List-Is A Healthy Lifestyle On It?”
That Person That Inspires You
Perhaps there is that person in your life, or even just someone you are familiar with or barely even know. Many times this person is living the type of lifestyle that you long for. This person probably started from the point you are currently at. You have admired this person for a long time for how they have really changed their life around. They have made amazing changes and you want to be like them. This person is an inspiration to you.
Reaching A Dream Goal
Have you ever had those “I wish I had done this” type of thoughts? Maybe it is running a marathon. Going on a more strenuous hiking trail. Whatever it is, you might feel that weight right now is a deterrent to reaching that goal that is in the back of your mind. Inspiration for crossing the finish line or scaling the mountain range could be just the inspiration you need to get the weight off.
Inspiration Can Be The Key
When you have inspiration, you have something that you aspire to become. These visions of that person that you work with who has overcome what would seem like overwhelming odds and reached their weight goal. That dream of walking 12 mile trail through the national park you’ve always wanted to see and know you could do it. Also the vision of just being present, healthy and happy for your family. Inspiration did just that for me. Always having that inspired vision in my head of why all of this work is worth the effort. Where does your inspiration for weight loss come from?
