How do you stay motivated?

There are internal and external motivators. What type of external motivators help you? Besides the scale.

I am talking about things like motivating TV shows, tapes videos, books, signs or posters in the house, mirrors (or lack of them)...

Good Morning..

I can't and no longer count on "motivation".. it's not something that hangs around. For me I need plans for saving my arse when I start to faulter. (is that spelled right?)..

I have a page of notes I keep in my computer that I change every once in a while and print out and keep in my purse.. they are personal, motivational and also sad reminders of WHY I am doing this.. I read them when I need them. This is something I have started lately.

I think motivation always leaves us.. well at least most of us and having a plan helps. I am going to be making a tape recording for myself too and a scrap book with pix and thoughts and things that keep me focused. I've already started collecting for it. It will be a FUN project!

I am also going to finally follow thru with a few rewards along the way! It seemed like I would always find an excuse (I was down over 50#) to hold off on them when the time came (every 10#).. and not do them. Of course it was always about the money but I think that sent a message to my consciousness that secretly I thought I was not worth it.

Basically I guess I just won't rely on motivation alone! Oh and I need to post here more often.. I kept falling away when I would not be doing well, like I felt I was not worthy of posting here unless I was doing great and could encourage others.. I have not always been good at asking for help.. I think that's important too!

Motivation is no longer something I need to eat in a way that I love and loves me.The idea of eating higher carb foods no longer appeals to me. I would say that I came to this after reading GC/BC.

I had someone tell me yesterday that I was an inspiration, not just for losing weight but for eating right and exercising. Being an example to others is a motivator for me.

Visualization is a HUGE motivator for me. It makes our goals extrinsic, something we can almost "touch," if you will. It’s helpful for me to place pics of me at goal weight in obvious places that I will see each morning. Or another visual, getting dressed in the morning and wanting to be able to wear with confidence my smallest size clothes.

EXACTLY, LINDA. Now THAT'S what I'm talking about!

Another big one is compliments from others.

Last but not least, it's the quest for fitness and feeling good and health and longevity -- doing something good for myself, all worthy of my commitment to staying motivated and exercising self-discipline.

That's awesome.

It's not a great "artist" collage like I have seen lately but it says allot I think.

What a great "VISION BOARD", Daisy!! I especially love the "frisky husband" part!

Your collage is BETTER than anything a "great artist" would ever think up! It's the perfect way of remembering and getting the things you want in life.

Remember: Thoughts become things so make those thoughts good ones!!

I also like to do visualization. I have a pic of myself at current weight where my butt looks so big I think I could moon Europe and another one of me years ago when I was almost skinny (5'9" 125). I put them on my fridge and it really deters me from grazing.

I also kept a pair of jeans that I wore when I was skinny (now about 20 years ago) and was trying to think of a way to display them without being really tacky and using refrigerator clips. Ideas?

My motivation is that I can get more done if I am not sick (or hangover, that is why I don't drink anymore, or eat bad carbs).

My mind is not in a fog, and I can be better at work or school

I feel better

my skin is more clear

I dont spend hours obsessing over food (so I can obsess over getting my house cleaner, or just shopping or being with friends)

my clothes feel better

and the ladies at my place of work (they are super nice, thanks God!) keep asking me what am I doing to look so happy... so compliments work too.

It may sound silly, but I looooooove changing the stats on my profile and in my signature. I get so excited !!!

It doesn't hurt either when Cutie-Pie gives me a hug, tells me "I CAN FEEL YOUR RIBS !!!", then gives me a HUGE bear hug and tells me how proud he is of me. How's THAT for motivation ?

I like to reread fitness magazines. I have a whole bin full of magazines. I've probably looked at three this morning.

I also like to google up pictures of celebrities or models that I find inspiring. Looking at how in shape they look, and then I compare it in my mind to the starting pictures I took def keeps me motivated to stay on track. Granted, I'm restarting and on only day 5 but I haven't gotten off track yet.

Take a pic of them and post it on your fridge...probably won't fall off the fridge like the actual jeans would everytime the door opened and closed

I am a baby here, but not a baby to general dieting or low carb eating. This sounds terrible, but one of the things I do to keep myself on track is go over to obesityhelp.org and read the "failed weight loss surgery" forum.

Fat as I am, WLS seems like the only option, but I also know that people like me (addicts) generally regain the weight. So seeing that WLS isn't an option kind of scares me.

Here's the thing that's doing it for me right now, because it directly addresses where I am w/having regained all of the weight I lost five years ago:

"Drastic times call for drastic measures. Sure, it was a long slow evolution to where you are now, but the reality is … you’re losing your ability to WALK! That’s giving up all kinds of personal freedoms. You’d be imprisoned, forever. That’s about as dramatic as it gets! While it may not feel that dramatic to you, if you keep going this way, you will wake up one day and the last step you ever took … is behind you. You’ll never walk again."

That's from DJFoodie and I keep reading it and reading it. It's easy to lose motivation and will, especially as I start feeling better (and just a few days cutting out sugar, starchies, and grains makes me feel 500% better). Ever vigilant, that's my plan.

Hi pzins…

Don't really need motivators. I do this because it's the only way I can eat and not gain weight.

Since I made up my mind in Aug 2008 that I have to eat low carb, it's just what I do. I kept the plan simple…30 net carbs a day & I subtract everything - all fiber & sugar alcohol.

I don't worry about portion size, or calories, or tracking anything other than keeping a running tally of carbs for the day.

I never discuss my weight with others outside this group or my wife, and I don't ever mention low carb unless it's unavoidable. I weigh when visiting the doctor's office (couple times a year maybe).

If there is a gratifying part it's that it's easier to shop when your clothes don't have to have Goodyear on the label.

I figure if I have to depend on motivators I'll have to carry them with me everywhere, which is far too much work...so just doing this because it's the choice I made has been good enough for me.

I really enjoy the food, and the reason I stick to this is because I keep a wide variety of low carb foods around (thanks to an understanding and supportive wife who does not eat low carb).

People who notice and comment on my weight loss motivate me.

Buying smaller clothes is motivation

Comparing pictures of myself now vs. myself 6 mons ago helps to pep me up!

Reading books that support and re-affirm this WOE (like Gary Taubes GCBC)

Right now my kids are motivating me. See I started low carb due to my depression and recently I got off plan and almost immediately turned into an angry, moody, crazy person and it scared not only my kids but my dd's friend as well. If I even think about putting junky carbs in my mouth I remember what I was like not so long ago and that is enough to stop me.

I have lots of different types of motivations.

I want to look hot.

I want to feel great.

I want to set an example of healthful living for my child.

And...er...my divorce hearing is in a few months and I want to make my ex feel like total sh*t.

Lemme tell you... Option "D" ROCKS !!!

I ran into my ex after losing about 45 lbs last year (prior to RE-gaining close to 20 lbs of that back). I was 10 lbs heavier than I am now. I'd gotten highlights and a SERIOUS tan. (He'd NEVER seen me look like that.) I was also in a well-fitting t-shirt, shorts, and wedge sandals. We hadn't seen each other in 9 years. (I was dreading this day, not knowing how I would react.) His jaw hit the floor and he looked me up and down. What did *I* do ? (This next part was SOOOO unlike me.) I snorted in derision, gave him a go-to-you-know-where look, and walked away chuckling to myself. Childish of me ? Probably. However, it was VERY empowering ! (I was a doormat at one time. He was a control freak and other things that had happened was sending up red flags to the counselor. When my ex walked out [another "power" thing he'd done many times before] that last time, I didn't let him walk back in. Didn't even ask him to come back. LOL) Thankfully, I've lost more since seeing him last. If I'm lucky, I won't run into him again. If I do, I want a repeat of last year. LOL Yep. I'm terrible. I admit it freely.

Apologies for the thread jack. Just giving a personal example that proves the best revenge definitely *IS* to live well.

This is very motivating because you are doing this for all of the right reasons.... not for others... just because it works for you.



Thanks for sharing these ideas. I think lots of people will find them inspiring.

My DH being a diabetic is motivation for me. Since I needed to lose weight and so did he, this a good start for the way we will have to continue to eat. Losing weight motivates him to stay on it and seeing his blood sugar normal once again, and no insulin, is motivation for me to eat this way. I know he realizes this is the way we will eat from now on. This is no diet to just lose weight for us.
Andddddddd....the idiots who dreamed up my bedroom design with two huge closets with sliding mirror doors.....getting dressed in front of those every morning will wake you up and motivate you.

My health is a big motivator for me.

I'm a caretaker and wasn't able to keep up with my duties basically because I was eating myself to death with diabetes and debilitating migraines among other health problems. My health has completely turned around, only and ONLY from what I choose to eat and you know what, the food is way better and satisfying, I'm so fortunate I was able to get my health back, many aren't so lucky.
