Setbacks = New Motivation

So tonight I had scheduled to go to a “Customize your own workout” class at my local Planet Fitness.  Before I went I decided to weigh myself and take a few pictures of what I am currently.  I weighed and was very disappointed I went from 196.5 to 201.5.  When I saw that I wanted to just crawl under my covers on my couch eat a tub of ice cream and drink all the sodas that I can.  Instead I started to think.

For every pound I want to lose I need to find a reason why I want to lose that pound.  Some of them are superficial and others are really good reasons.  For every pound I am working on I will start posting those reasons on cards that I can place in my office at work, my car, my purse, my mirror, the fridge, my phone, facebook, instagram and even certain ones I can turn into blog topics.  I have lots of them since I want to be down to 120 lbs or so.  Below are my pictures and then also my list of 82 motivations of why i want to lose a pound.
