My motivation hangs on my closet door in the form of a bathing suit I have to wear in early March when I go to Florida.

Where to? I am going to bike week in Daytona March 4th. I am also lookin' at my suit but am more concerned with looking good in a tank top. I am working my arms big time.

I get motivated thinking that I am closer to 50 now and want to look hot at my next class reunion, plus I am still looking for the lid to my pot, and looking sexy can't hurt.

My motivation is feeling good, keeping my blood sugars normal, and maintaining a healthy brain. I notice that when I don't exercise, my brain doesn't function as clearly. Now THAT is motivation!

Exercise is a panacea for a host of health woes..especially as we age. I used to be motivated by looking good and losing weight but that wasn't enough to keep me going. The threat of Alzheimer's or other illness in the future...extremely motivating! And the benefits that come from exercise are extras!

My exercise buddies are my 2 dogs. They never miss their daily walk. I also listen to good audio books when I walk.

Last January I joined the Y and Paying my monthly dues makes me want to take advantage of the classes. Once you start going to classes, it turns out to be fun. It's just making time in your schedule to stick with it.

What motivates me is seeing a picture of myself and thinking I'm fat. Then I start moving. Thats probably not the best motivation since its reactive rather than proactive

Kristin I feel that most of us start working out for the same reasons. We see a picture, or simply look in the mirror, and get this push. When one reaches their goal, the motivation switches, and you continue working out to maintain the new body. What matters is that we are working out.

My new motivation is that I went clothes shopping recently and clothes just don't fit right anymore. Not finding clothes that look good is truly depressing.

I like working out - it's fun. But sometimes I forget to allow myself 'fun' - of all kinds, when I get really busy. frown
