Uncover The “Why”

by Jackie Wicks

Figure Out The Real Reason You Want To Lose Weight

People often say that the “why” is more important than the “how” in terms of getting something done. If you’ve been thinking about losing the last 10 pounds or the first 50 pounds, it’s most likely been on your mind for a very long time. Why are you here reading this now? Did you have a scare at the doctor’s office? Was it hard to run after your child today? Did you find yourself getting ready for work today and having every single pair of pants be too tight? Did you see yourself in a family picture? Are you dating someone who is healthier than you and it has inspired you? What is the real reason?

Having that reason is the single most important part of your journey because your journey will get difficult. Very difficult. You will be doing well for a week or two, but then the challenge sets in. Stress, family and work demands will set in. Someone will say something that offends you and it will knock you off your game. You will be at a friend’s birthday party and everyone will be having food and cake and you’ll want some too. If you have that reason, that core motivator of why you’re doing this, it will be a powerful tool to help you get through the rough time and get back on track.

If you have been reading the PEERtrainer user guide and weight loss guide and have not signed up yet, this is a good time to do so. You might find that after you have identified the “why” you will have the motivation you need to get started.
