My motivation stems from watching my dad who lost 60 pounds just because he decided to make a lifestyle change. Most of my family are moderately overweight and it's something that I grew up with, so I decided that if my dad (who is 25 years older than me) could do it, then so can I. So far on my journey I have lost close to 30 pounds and I have another 30 to go. I am determined not only to lose the weight, but to retain as much muscle mass as possible.
I'm aiming for a healthier lifestyle.
Last year I realised my life has got too sedentary all of a sudden for a few years. I've started having different health issues and I thought I need to do something for myself.
I'm 26 now. I'd like to get married, have kids... How could I do all this being always ill!?
I've started losing weight and feeling always weak... I got scared. Yes, the truth is I had to get really really afraid of what's happening to me to change something. But now I'm here! I had already started my own battle when I found out this app but it helped a lot. Much more than I would have thought!
I'm still underweight but I'm stronger and healthier :) My relatives notice it and they are all happy to see I've been awaken. I'm even happier ^^
Well done to you for making a positive change that will hopefully have a ripple effect on the people around you. My motivation is partly to prove to myself finally that I can stick to something and see some results, but also to make me a happier person to be around for my wife and daughters. I want to feel good so I can be a great husband/Dad for them.
My motivation is:
I do a workout. I like it. I like the little pain it causes to my muscles. So I do it again tomorrow
Just dat :)
Fitness and Wellness are passions of mine. The other part of my motivation is being able to assist other people in changing their lifestyle and trying to lead by example. Good luck to all of you on your journey. I'm willing to help.
To fight depression and be happy with my life, passing of my mom was particularly hard on me among other things that life threw at me and my answer to all of it was workout. By working out I feel like I am doing something with my time something worthwhile and not doing endless marathons of countless tv series/movies so yeah I would continue with it all my life or till I can
Well firstly my whole life ive disliked excersise and by some crazy good fortune i have stayed pretty slim with only doing excersing once in a while. End of last year I did a bikini competition and won!!! So thats perpelled me to work harder so i can loose a tiny bit more (5kgs) and also tone up as alot of the girls are stunning and work hard on thier bodies. .. obviously im getting a bit older so i can't expect my body to naturally do the work.
In high school i tried my hand and sports and i was so bad that no one ever passed the ball ect. Now that im older its great to leave my bad feelings behind and get fit!!!
I also have my parents who are overweight and have to take blood pressure pill everyday. They are finding it harder to excersise the older they get so i want to make it a habit (excersise) and prevent situations.
Lol so i guess my reason is a bit more vain than others ;)
Mine is so I can fill a couple shirts I've got lol, also I plan on joining the navy so I need to build some muscle for that.
I have to exercise. I get crazy from sitting still, energy builds up inside of me and I become restless and anxious.
I used to walk or bike everywhere and had a job where I was on my feet all day. Now I've moved to the countryside and study from home so all that everyday exercise is gone. I miss it so much.
My cholesterol was not in the healthy range. That's when I started working out.
I want to feel better and look awesome.
ican totally relate ....... my whole family struggles with Obesity............... my saving grace is that I over came it..... at about 14........ my motivation was just that I hit pubirty.... then nature took care of the rest........ I mean with the motivation factor( (
girls......... though it's a life struggle.... with its up and downs.......
Now i am glad to have found this app... It gives me all sorts of motivation .... Just need some work out buddies now
