This is one of the serious problems attached with any challenge around. To keep up the consistency and to stay motivated until the goal is in your hand! I was thinking that my level of motivation was slightly coming down so I had to sit and note down a few things that can actually help me keep up the challenge. I thought I would publish it because I hope at least a few of you might be finding it helpful. So, here are my top ways to motivate me to make the challenge live!
- 1. Think of your health conditions:-
This can be many of our reasons to plan a weight gain. I too have many health issues that make it difficult to do everything I have to do in a day. Having a healthy weight is very important to remain active. All these days, I knew it very well that health is wealth. I in fact used to feel jealous looking at other girls of age, naturally healthy and have enough weight! But I do remind myself that every human is the same and with efforts comes the results J
- 2. Think of your Haters or critics (Read relatives & Frenemies):-
Seriously this is gross. I can count a number of people at this particular moment, who has commented about my skinny body, made fun of myself in front of others, left the statement of wonder about how chubby I was in my childhood and many other incidents that have happened at different points of my life. I have HAD enough; it’s time to prove something NOT for any of them. But to myself that they are wrong!
- 3. Challenge yourself for a special occasion ahead:-
Yes! I have MY wedding coming up mostly by the end of this year. So, the reason is simple. I too have to look my best just like every other girl! Dreams are so high!
If not your marriage, think of your best friend’s marriage ;)
- 4. Think of the “wow…moment”, the next time you are catching up with your friends
Okay, this happens to me every single time. I have a catch up with my close friends once in a year. Every time I see them, they have actually frowned and said:” you are getting slimmer, Sana! “That makes me sad too. I am trying to visualize that moment of this year and the way they are going to cry in excitement for seeing a fit me.
- 5. Think of all those relatives of your same age who have DONE it!
Trust me; I have seen many girls who were in the same boat of me. But as and when their marriage approaches or the date is fixed, they bring about such a huge change to their body! From skinny to a fat one! Okay, my idea is not to be a tomato but I want myself fit and happy in my skin.
Finally, Imagine the pretty yourself every single time you feel down with the challenge.
