MYST 91: Motivation and Inspiration

“Help! I need motivation!”

How many times do I read that in LoseIt! from members who are not losing weight. And unfortunately, no one can help them. Oh, we can inspire them, but that really doesn’t do much.

Inspiration are the cheerleaders at a football game. They make people become excited, but they don’t change the outcome of the game. Motivation is inside the players themselves.
