Reason to lose weight

After reading a blog from someone and she mentioned that it is good list reason why you want to lose weight and alos to list your goals to stay motivated when the going get though.

Why I want to lose weight:

- like my body
- have more energy
- be beautiful and toned

- do a triathlon
- run 5K under 30 mintes
- run 7 miles
- join the running club

This morning had a very tough workout with my PT. My legs and knees are killing me right now. But feel so good about myself as I start to see how my fitness is improving. And also my willpower is stronger now. In the past I would give in when it starts to get tough. But like today at the end of my session I decided to go on the crosstrainer for another 10 min and after 2 minutes I felt like giving in. But I did the 10 minutes and was really proud of myself. I knew that if I would stop prior to the 10 minutes then I would really be angry at myself. That was the reason why I have a PT as my willpower used to be so crap and now I see how much stronger that has become. So I suppose I will have to give my PT some credit for that! :)
