Motivation: Friend or Foe?

I think the value of motivation is over rated. Motivation is what drives everyone to try to lose weight. But – motivation is fleeting. It lasts until you hit your first speed bump, like a holiday, an office party or a crappy day. Everyone wants motivation, and yet we keep chasing after something that is impermanent.

So what keeps you going (or keeps me going)? It is dedication and the realization that there is no choice but to continue on my healthy path. If I don’t choose that, I go back to the old me. Not an option.
