Hi Lisa3691! That's too bad about the step fall; exercising is tough enough without injuries! Staying motivated has been a big challenge. I met my goal in 2011 and then slowly the pounds crept back on. I noticed the biggest change was not going on SparkPeople every day like I did when I was losing. I decided yesterday to regroup and get back-I felt better with the extra pounds off- had more energy and was less stressed. Knowing how I felt then is giving me the motivation this time around. That's great that you're doing well- I have lots of moments when I want to eat what I shouldn't ( I am an emotional eater- happy, sad, stressed, excited- any emotion- I want to eat!). I think logging on SP is the best way to fight those cravings- seeing that others are going through the same as me makes me realize I'm not alone. Losing weight and getting healthy habits isn't easy- but it's worth the effort!

Hi How are you? How do you stay motivated? I am doing pretty good right now I have my moments when I want to eat things i shouldn't. I fell down some steps Friday night so exercising is hard.
