Motivation Please!

So I'm trying to lose some weight but just can't seem to get motivated - Really? I mean I'm getting married! If thats not motivation then I don't know what will be, but its not :( I started WW and I'm doing ok as far as the eating and making smart food choices are concerned...BUT I can't get my big butt off the couch (or the computer for that matter) to work out.  Please if anyone has any tips for some motivation please help me out, I don't care how outrageous, I'm ready to print a 8x10 picture of myself now and carry it around with me everywhere I go! Thats how desperate I am, and hey if it works all the better.

Hey Chavez, you know what got me motivated?  When I fell in love with a mermaid gown and couldn't fit into their biggest sample size of it to see if it looked good on me or not.  I'm determined to get my a** in it to see how it looks, even if it doesn't zip, just to be able to try it on is all I want.(I'm lucky I have enough time between now and the latest month I can order in before its too late)  I also started looking at old pics of me from 4 years ago before I got together with FI and that got my butt off the couch! 


I began slowly on my treadmill last week, first I did 20 min on the tread one day, next day I went for 25, on my 3rd day I went for 30.  I just kept challenging myself.  I can't seem to get past 30 this week, but that's ok I'll one day get up to 45 min!  I'm following WW too and I lost 3lbs last week.  You'll do it!

This may be really weird, but I have a picture of what I want to look like..


This may be really photo 2438927-1


So whenever I want to eat junk food or not go exercise, I just look at that picture and it makes me want to work towards it more. That's my motivation lol

@as4968 maybe that'll work for..hmmm, I'm going to have to look into that (find a pic of what I want to look like too) I have one of what I don't want to look at and its of pic of me at a family party in July so maybe if I find one of what I want to look like it will give me an extra boost...Thanks


@2011bride, thats awesome what you're doing, keep up the good work, I'm going to jump on my treadmill too, my work hours and really goofy they're 12pm - 8pm, so I made a pact with my FI to jump on the treadmill after I get the kids off to school for 1/2hr before work and 1/2 after, and if I don't then I "owe" him something...LOL, so we'll see how that works. Good luck to you, and thanks for the input
