What’s your why? That’s my big question for the week and probably one of my biggest triumphs or downfalls when it comes to weight loss and living a healthy lifestyle! Let me explain what I mean.
Have you ever watched Biggest Loser or Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition with Chris and Heidi Powell? These were both really successful weight loss TV series that unfortunately aren’t running anymore but after years of watching them I learned a few things that are key to weight loss and one of them is finding out what your “why” is. Why do you want to lose weight? Is it really that you want to look better? Is that what will get you to your 5 am workout class? Or is it more? So let tell you what my “why” is and why it is what it is :).
It has taken me years to finally figure out what my “why” is and honestly, it has evolved over the years in more ways than I care to admit. But I finally landed on something and it has really stuck. My family is my “why” they are the reason I am on the Medifast go program so I can be the healthiest version of myself. They are the reason I workout every single day. I want to keep my body going at full speed so that I never have to slow down when Evie wants me to throw her in the air just one more time. My family means more to me than any amount of clothes, money, cars, or food than I could ever imagine and THAT is why them being my “why” has finally stuck and changed my point of view on health and weight loss forever.
So how do you find your own “why”?
What do you think about as you’re falling asleep at night? What do your dreams consist of? What do you worry about? Who or what do you love more than anything you ever thought possible? Who do you never want to disappoint? What do you want to be able do 20 years from now? Answer these questions and you’ll find your “why”!
If you’re struggling with this, I would love to help you find your own “why”! Please let me know in the comments, it is such an important part of losing weight, being happy, and just becoming the best version of yourself.
