|My view walking into work!|
Ironically, none of that is what actually triggered me to post today. It was seeing this old post from a million years ago when I talked about what motivated me. It was true then and it's probably even more true now. We're moving to a city that has an amazing bike path system and I'm hoping to commute to work via bike more often than not. We bought a house near a neighborhood so we could walk places rather than having to drive 20-30 minutes or more to get anywhere.
I'm currently staying with family who live in a house in that situation. I've really enjoyed walking to the market to get some fruits/vegetables or walking to the local diner for a salad. I'm guessing that has helped when it comes time to step on the scale. The first week I was in Madison I gained 1 pound; the next week I lost 1.4, last week I lost 2.6 pounds. The motivation is the same - to not be defined by my weight. Whether I'm 215 pounds heavier or at my goal weight. I just want to be able to live and move. To have a good time and start this new adventure.
Can you define what your motivation is? Has it changed?
