My reasons for doing this
If you want to motivated, make a list of why getting healthy is important to you. Or whatever works for you. Maybe pictures. But I like to make lists. Whenever you feel discourage look at it. Put it somewhere you’ll see it often. Here’s my list:
Less weight on my body - You body does great things! Make sure it keeps on doing them!
More energy - you know that feeling when you don’t feel like you have the energy to go to the gym so you just don’t go? Go to the gym and you’ll be energized! After a work out I feel better about myself. Then you’ll have energy to do whatever you’d like!
Clothes fit better - I am running out of jeans. It sucks so much cause I have plenty of other pairs of jeans, but they don’t fit. I don’t need to go out and buy new ones I just need to fit back in them. I’m also in limbo in a stage where size large is too small, and the next size in plus size is too bit. I rarely find and XL in clothes I like. So I either gain more weight or lose it. What do you think is best?
**Edit: 3/24 - My old jeans are fitting again! I actually tried on my skinny jeans I haven’t worn since 2010, and although they were a a bit tight, they fit! And I think I’m back at being an L.
DigiTour - I’m going to the DigiTour again this year in March. Basically it’s a concert with YouTube musicians. I love these people and I look back to last year’s pictures and I HATE how I look. Think about getting the chance to meet your favorite celebrity and take a picture with them. You want to look good, don’t you?
**Edit- I ended up not going to the DigiTour this year but I did go to a large music festival, I was at 160 and that’s when I really saw the change. :)
VidCon - First time at the YouTube convention this summer where I’ll get to meet basically every single one of my favorite YouTubers. Same thing as with the DigiTour. It’ll also be my first time in California :)
Future - Are you an organ donor? Do you ever think on the possibility of not being able to save someone’s life because your organs are too damaged because of something you had control over? Or maybe you want to get married? Have kids? You want make sure to stick around as long as you can. Maybe you have a bucket list? Whatever your reason is, a better future is something to look forward to.
