One of my best girlfriends gave me some great advice recently...
"To get motivated you have to start doing, once you start doing you will see results and become motivatated."
Now. Doesn't that make sense!
I have a wedding coming up in May that I will be a bridesmaid for. I am very much looking forward to sharing this day with my life long friend. She and I have been friends since Kindergarten :)
I am however dreading getting dressed for it. I have put on sooooo much weight!
You'd think that this would be enough motivation to lose weight. But it hasn't been. I have known for over a month that I have limited time to get to a reasonable size for this wedding, but have still done nothing.
I went shopping this morning to see if I could find a nice top to wear to work tomorrow. I was mortified when I couldn't even pull a size 16 top on! There was no way in hell I was going to try the 18 on. I just put the top back & walked out of the shop.
It took all my mental energy to not head straight to McDonalds for a Big Mac.... Instead I went into Woolies & grabbed a weight watchers meal and a bottle of Coke Zero. It also took all my mental effort to not grab a chockie bar from the check out...
So this is it, I am only 1 kilo off my heaviest weight ever. How depressing. Time to be motivated, and I will only get motivated if I start doing!!
