How to find your why for weight loss? If weight loss is your goal, do you know why you want it? If you can’t immediately answer that question right here, right now (and honestly!) you are unplugged from your most natural and powerful motivation source—YOU.
Your WHY, or reason for wanting to achieve a goal, is your core motivation because it connects you to what fires you up most.
A WHY isn’t a one size fits all thing. What motivates someone else may not get you off the couch.
The key to determining your why is to just ask yourself: Why do I really want to lose weight? Why is it important to me? If your WHY motivates you toward weight loss, go with it.
If it motivates you, it’s a good thing. Everyone is motivated by different things.
Staying Committed To Your Why
Remember that guy that gave up? Neither does anyone else.
Journaling Your Why
Write down your WHY and keep it somewhere you can see it daily. Maybe your WHY is “Look good in photos at my friend’s wedding.”
Visualizing Your Why
Renewing Your Why…Often!
This is BIG. I don’t expect you to wake up every day with the motivation to run your first marathon (even if that’s your WHY!). It’s just not realistic to expect you will leap out of bed daily—eager to exercise and totally synched up with your WHY.
