Need A Little Weight Loss Motivation? Discover Your Personal Theme Song

Music is a great motivator in my weight loss journey. I'm careful to use my personal theme song sparingly -- just when I need that mental push.

Music is a great motivator in my weight loss journey. I’m careful to use my personal theme song sparingly — just when I need that mental push.

When it comes to weight loss, I’m my worst critic. On days where I feel I’m not making any progress, I need a little power boost to completely shift my attitude. That little boost is a song.  Oh not any song, but my very own personal theme song. You know, the song that should play as you strut into a room.

A personal theme song isn’t necessarily your all-time favorite song. It’s the embodiment of who you are and changes as your life changes.  I’ve had a few in my life – Brick House and Beautiful Day to name a couple.

A personal theme song should speak directly to you about what you are going through or the goal you are after.  As soon as I heard Free Me, I knew it was the perfect theme song for my weight loss journey. The lyrics perfectly matched my attitude.

“And if there’s one thing I will say to you
Is that there is nothing that you can’t do
‘Cause it’s all about your attitude…
Now don’t tell me that I won’t, I can
Don’t tell me that I’m not, I am”

It’s no secret that music is a great motivator and can improve mood. It’s common for me to jog past my house after a run because a song on my iPod is only halfway over.

While music improves my mood and makes me work harder during a workout, my personal theme song goes above and beyond the call of duty. It helps steel my resolve and send my confidence soaring . Whenever I listen to Free Me I get excited about the changes I’m making and forget about my doubts. My attitude completely shifts and like the song says, I know “there is nothing that I can’t do.”

Do you have a personal theme song that embodies your health goals?

  1. I know parents out there are sick of it, but “Let It Go” by Idina Menzel is the most inspiring song on my playlist. Lines like “it’s time to see what I can do, to test the limits and break through. No right, no wrong, no rules for me. I’m free!” And “That perfect girl is gone” and “I’m never going back. The past is in the past.” In the theater, when Elsa finished the song I yelled “Oh my god, I LOVE her!”
