Yesterday on NEY, I posted about how much I absolutely suck at motivating myself...like...seriously.
For example- Once, Andrew (FI) told me that he would take me to Disneyland when I reached my goal weight. I freaking love Disneyland! It's the most magical place on earth! Another time- My girlfriend and I agreed that if we were both "on plan" for a certain period of time- we would send eachother goodies. I LOVE presents.
Things I LOVE don't even seem to motivate me. What the heck?!
We discussed some motivational ideas- and someone mentioned to use my wedding to motivate me. I think that might really work for a lot of people.....but for me- I think it would make me feel worse. I want to feel like I'm beautiful on my wedding day- no matter my dress size. In fact- I'm tired of hating myself- I want to feel okay with myself now...and a year from now. If I didn't lose weight before my wedding....or enough weight- I think I would feel guilty- and if I wasn't working out hard enough- I'd probably feel guilty from now until our wedding day.
It was mentioned, "I think you need to un-attach the idea of self-hate from wanting to lose weight."
Is this way easier said then done?
