Not as motivated as I should be.

Visuals are great motivators. When I need a little help, I look through pages from other members that have lots a lot of weight, and it helps to keep me going!

Thanks for all the replies. I am still at it and feeling pretty motivated, Reading each of your replies and your SPARK pages/stories helps alot. I plan on taking it 1 day and 1 step at a time and hopefully I'll reach my goal.

Motivation comes in many forms, and can be quite different for all of us. Are you motivated by a reward system, or would you rather tick things off a list. Perhaps social contact helps more, so finding a buddy would be the best way to go about things.
What has worked for you in the past?
I know that my motivation wanes each time I finish a race goal. The training plan is over, and I need to set something up fast so I have something to follow. One of my methods is the list (which the training plan works well - I can cross each workout off as I work towards my goal).
I am also motivated by streaks. How many days in a row can I get in five veggies/fruits?
And my teams really motivate me. Sometimes I just need to read about someone else struggling with arthritis (or whatever), and they went out for a walk anyway - and this helps me to go out too.
