My personal trainer MARK posted this photo this week on his facebook page for clients as motivation.
Instead of it being about food or commitment or exercise, it was something much more simple.
|What Motivates You?|
Well beyond this picture just being overly cute, it really bothered me because I had no answer to that simple question.
As I pondered this question for days this week, I came up with: shopping, buying new smaller clothes and looking and feeling Great and Confident in my appearance at social gatherings and Work.
I am 100% certain that this world in 2012 is prejudice against overweight people and think less of them in terms of worth. I am certain because I am one of the millions who are obese. What have I settled for in life because I'm fat. Does my internal mattra sing like the song from the 80's, don't worry...oh be happy your a phatty after all'.
I broke down and went shopping this weekend for the first time in probably 10 months and bought some really cute things. But the best purchase of all was some wonderful feeling totally Awesomified Panties.
These damn things cost $10 per pair or 3 for $30 as they advertise. WHAT? ? ?
Does my Ass that looks exactly like this need sexy, silky and the most awesomeness material I have ever felt in my life rubbing up against it in the form of Panties....?
The answer is and was ..... HELL TO THE YES!
I had a great shopping trip and it felt wonderful to reward myself with a few new things.
Ok so back to my question, What Motivates You? I'm still wondering if this is my real motivation or is there something more!
Is this an acceptable motivation factor or too shallow?
