The best motivator I can think of for me is imagining myself slim and trim like I used to be. I have a whole closet full of beautiful clothes that I would like to wear. Sometimes imagining me fitting into my clothes depresses This is really hard to overcome. Plus I'm on medicine that slows my metabolism down and makes me hungry.And I can't go off of it. It's very hard to resist sweets. Exerting normal willpower doesn't work. I certainly need a well rounded program.

The Movtivation forum sound good. I need a lot of that. Lol.

I appreciate all the help you're giving me.

The first best motivator is SP, they have a lot of great advice, I like to keep a calendar or chart that records my progress, I use visual imagery to see myself closer to meeting my goal and how I will feel, You need to give yourself positive self talk that rewards every step toward meeting your goals. emoticon

There is also a spark team called ***MOTIVATORS***. The members all help each other stay motivated with emails, goodies, team huddles, and lots of inspirational quotes. It could help you, so check it out!

That was fast! Lol

I diet on and off unsuccessfully. I just watched the video from the founder of SparkPeople. It was motivating. Take easy, very small steps, he said. This is new for me. I'm going to do it :)

Thanks for your encouragement!

Having simple goals that you can consistently follow and spending time daily on the steps to reach the goal can motivate you.

In the initial stages, be careful not to have overly ambitious goals.

The fact that you set the goal and achieved it is truly motivating.
As an example, set a goal that you will measure everthing you eat during a day.

I feel the same way. I am discouraged. I don't want to give up, though.

Does anyone have any tips about motivation, and staying motivated. I need to lose weight to become healthy, but I feel I have tried and failed so many times its hard to have faith in my own abilities.
