mo·ti·vate: to provide with a motive or motives; incite; impel.
For me that modivation is Ali from the Biggest Loser. She started off at 235lbs. Which is only 10 more lbs than I was at my highest weight last year. She is only an inch taller than me, she's 5'5". Her before picture is with her mom, Bette Sue. She and her Mom got voted off of the show early on. After being home , Ali continued to lose weight and got to come back on the show for losing the biggest percentage of weight at home.
Well in the finale, she actually won the Biggest Loser competition, and got down to about 125 lbs. She lost 112 pounds. THAT IS A SMALL PERSON. Seriously. That is awesome, awesome motivation for me. Hell, I don't have access to The Biggest Loser ranch and trainers, but I can still have a goal for myself. It may take me longer, but if she can do it, so can I!
