Ultimate Weight Loss Motivation - Living Longer

by: Jeff Smith
It's true, when most of us think of the need to lose weight, 
we think in terms of aesthetics, or how we look? 

Our weight loss motivation is to imagine what we would look 
like if we could just lose 20lbs. 

Unless we are stricken by illness, or told by our doctor to 
lose weight now, our weight loss goals tend to be to look better, 
feel better, attract more love and sex into our lives, gain 
social or career advantages, or defeat the effects of natural 

Indeed, this is the motivation for the majority of weight loss 
products and services that create a massive impact on the market. 

The reality though is that we should also view being overweight 
as a strong risk factor for disease and ailments. 

There are many diseases that have proven links with being 
overweight including: heart disease, forms of cancer, high 
blood pressure, auto-immune diseases such as arthritis, and 
emotional diseases such as depression - just to name a small 

It's time that we expand our view on how important succeeding 
at weight loss is in terms of overall health and base our 
weight loss motivation on more than just looking better. 

You control your ability to significantly lower the risk of 
disease in your life. 

That should be an extremely powerful motivation behind succeeding 
at your weight loss program. 

It does take some work though, since our nature is to focus on 
the immediate or short term gratification - which is our looks. 

If your weight loss program has proved unsuccessful, perhaps 
you have been using the wrong sources for motivation? Try 
spending some time learning about the impact on your overall 
health and longevity of succeeding with your weight loss goals. 

That may just be the hidden weight loss motivation you needed to 
get over the hump!
