Of course I am losing this weight for me. It doesn't work any other way. You can't lose weight for someone else, it just won't stick. But I am at the point where I want to keep losing kind of to prove to people that I can and will. Like my family, especially my parents. My mom and dad are both so proud of how I've lost weight and am being so much healthier now that it makes me want to keep going and also makes me not want to gain it back.
My mom says that once she is going to be settled and home for awhile (they have more trips coming), she wants to just eat what I eat so she can lose weight like I am. She keeps saying how proud she is of me losing this weight and how fast I have done it and that she wants to do the same thing.
I've had several people tell me that I am inspiring them to lose weight. They want to lose weight and have seen me do it, so they know they can too. I tell them exactly what I'm doing; Weight Watchers and working out on the elliptical. And it honestly hasn't been that hard. (Altho, this next 50 is probably going to be harder than the first 50.)
So my point is, sometimes, many times, the people in our lives really do influence our weight loss in some way. Sometimes it is negatively, sometimes it's positively. Hopefully you have more people positively affecting your weight loss than negatively. And if you don't, change it or even use your blog to create a positive support team.
Also, if you are on the path to losing weight, wherever you are on that journey, you are inspiring, because it's not always easy!
Attitude of Gratitude: I am inspiring!
