Have you ever heard the stories about the people who gained so much weight they couldn't get out of their house? Whenever I heard about those stories, I always wonder how someone could let that happen. I know that a lot of time there are other issues, such as emotional eating, but it just blows my mind sometimes.
Not only that, but it scares me. It scares me to think that I could become that way if I'm not careful. So much so that I decided when I was younger that as soon as I started to gain weight, I would start to work out and eat better to get the weight off and to prevent me from gaining a lot of weight.
One day I hopped on the scale and I had gained 19 lbs. 19! That was almost 20 lbs!! That was the turning point. It was time to lose this weight before it got out of control. That was the turning point for me and I started doing the one exercise I hated. Running. I've learned to like it since then and it helped me drop the weight.
Now my motivation is to keep the weight off and to live a long (100 years long), healthy life! What's your motivation? Check out Bryan Ganey's blog to read about his motivation!
