Day 232

Friday 19th August 2016

I find that there are lots of things that really keep me motivated to succeed. It’s really good to have a family who are supportive. It’s also good to have friends who are there for me too. Jenny, my nutritionist, has been really good at keeping me motivated.

I think without that support I am not sure I would have ever continued for so long. 

One other thing that is helping with my motivation is this blog/diary. I find the fact that I have to sit, write and draw a picture everyday is really beneficial to me. 

It gets me noticing things that I might never have noticed. It gets me thinking about all the positive things I am doing. It keeps me focused in the right direction. But most of all it keeps me motivated.

Somedays I struggle to know what to draw, somedays I draw the same things many times to get the picture right and somedays are easy. 


It was Matt’s idea for me to write a diary everyday. As I am better at drawing than writing I thought I would draw it instead. 

It has been good for me because if I have a low day or need some encouragement I just look back at my drawings and remember how I felt when I drew it. 

I have only ever done it for my own benefit, however, knowing that I am encouraging others is an added bonus.
