God isn't finished with me yet (obviously because I am still here) and so I gotta do my best with what is left of my life.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

The desire to live this wonderful life that God has given me with as much health and energy as is in my control.

My desire to serve God to the best of my abilities keeps me going. He is my motivation!

He who has begun a good work in you will be faithful to complete it!

I am in this for the LONG HAUL - I keep going because to stop would mean I have died.

The Scale and the love of my life. I got to lose to win. Win the battle of temptation and stay on this lifestyle journey to a new and fit me.

It's a Brand New kinda me. It's a Brand New kind of free.

I don't make excuses to myself. My BIG WHY is more important than sitting on my butt and making the wrong choices.

The progress that I've made so far keeps me going. I had a bad weekend...but it didnt throw me off track. I will continue to work hard and reach my goals.

the knowledge that if I don't work at this, I'm likely to be another "diabetes statistic". And I have too much to enjoy with my partner to let that happen!!

a few different things keep me motivated. I like logging in here and getting my points. I like watching the videos and reading the encouraging statements posted here. I like the way I feel after I complete a good workout. I like tracking my food and seeing success in keeping my calories below my limit. As my mom always told me Success breeds more success.

Educating myself about the foods I eat has really helped me. I am now a member of the "Clean Eating" group.

My journey has been slow as I am not on "a diet" I am changing my life from the inside out. It has taken me 6 months to lose 20 pounds and that is ok because I am learning healthy habits that will sustain me.

I visit Spark Coach everyday which also keeps me focused and motivated and encourages me to write down my thoughts and feelings.

I'm not losing weight...I'm getting rid of it! I have not intention of finding it again!

I remember every day I wake up that I have control of this. I'm not a victim, I'm not helpless, I make mistakes but I turn right around and keep going. I'm doing this on my schedule and its ok that I'm slow. I'm making progress and that's what matters. :)

How good I feel after a sweaty workout, an awareness of an increasing stamina, fitting into clothes I haven't been able to wear for a long time. The money I'm saving by bringing my lunch to work.

Totally the right way to look at it. I try to make myself every day that I don't feel like it. I succeed. I'm pretty happy with my progress...

I'm back after a long absence due to a death in the family but I agree with you, You DO feel so much better after you keep a promise you made to YOURSELF!

Good Luck. emoticon
