Well for me, I decided I was the motivation. I wanted it, but my goal is to establish a healthy lifestyle. I am trying really hard to plan healthy meals in advance healthy snacks. There are days I am more motivated than others. Today is not one of those days, but since I had my lunch and snacks packed and prepped it was easy for me to stay on track.
Spark points motivate me too. I like seeing them accummulate. Your baby deserves the best you possible, perhaps the toddler is your motivation? Lots of options.
Best tips I can give you are plan ahead. Track it daily and do your best :)

I don't think motivation is the answer. it comes and goes. I think planning is the answer, at least for me. Check out my sparkpage. I have been here nearly 6 years. i have lost 200+ pounds and have kept it off over 2 years now....was I motivated each day, nope ....but I planned my meals planned my exercise, planned for fun and it worked and it seems to keep working... learn to love yourself no matter what...you are worth it...
Have a healthy day

Hello and welcome to Spark People. I suppose we are all different in what motivates us. For me, focusing on my overall health, rather than the number on the scale, was my turning point. Good luck on your journey to better health. You can do this!

So I have been trying to loose baby weight for quite some time (the baby is 15 months). I have had a few set backs but now there are no excuses. Well except for the fact that I need to find motivation, drive, passion to work hard and do this! I know what I have to do, I know how to do it, I just need a push! In the past I have found motivation in upcoming events, seeing old friends or competing with others. But now I need to find something within myself. I need to do this for me and not for other things. I need to feel better in my skin! So what motivated/s you? I would love to hear about it!
