At last night's Lap Band Support Group in Omaha, they covered the 9 Hidden Reasons to Stay Motivated.
Using the Sparkpeople.com article, 9 Hidden Reasons to Stay Motivated: Ways to Rediscover Your Drive, as the launching point for the conversation, the group discussed members' secret motivations for losing weight.
The article's nine reasons range from finding clothes that can fit after you've lost weight to being around long enough to watch your children grow up.
One of the more fun items on their list is the WOW effect. Stop and think about it. You're walking through the store, and someone from your past stops you to say "Wow, you look amazing."
Isn't that one of the greatest feelings in the world?
