A few years ago I used sparkpeople and dropped about 35 pounds...guess i got to confident and lost track of everything...now im back to needing the help again and Im COMPLETELY unmotivated!! HELP!!!

looks like someone found some motivation!!! I've dropped nearly 40 pounds and feel awesome! Also turns out im kind of addicted to running! Its becoming a passion for me...I feel lost after not doing it for a day or two...
Its amazing what a few months of dedication and hard work can do for a person!!!
Thanks to my family, my workout buddies and my wonderful sparkfriends for keepin me on track!!! Couldn't do it without ya!!!

    I've only heard wonderful things about the Mud Run. I may try it next year. Marquette Marathon was awesome - you can read my "story" on my latest blog. They are also getting major rave reviews on their FB page. Many seasoned marathoners from thousands of miles away saying it is by far the best race they've ever run. I think it will grow tremendously next year...hopefully they will be prepared. Let's try to get together for coffee or something in the next couple weeks. I'm pretty busy this week, but mostly back to running next. Since you are on mids, what is the best time of day for you?

    Hey - welcome back. You are right, being here helps with so much, including the accountability. But it sounds like you've already started 'correcting.' I think you are more than "on the road to recovery." :) How are you feeling? Hope we can meet up in person soon. Did you do the Mud Run?

    I'm good; currently in the flurry of my half marathon extravaganza. Ran the Marquette Marathon Half Saturday. Scheduled for the Sault Chamber Chase 9/24, and then the Savannah RocknRoll 11/5. If I make it through all of them, I'll be an official Half Fanatic. Wish me luck.

    it doesnt matter if you fall or not, it matters if you get back up. getting up makes you stronger. dont focus on the negative, focus on what you have done right, take the ball and run with it.

    the only way to NOT make a mistake on this journey is to NOT do anything.
