"Your motivation will be as strong as the amount of effort you put into making your own decisions (regardless of what they might be) with conscious awareness. Your motivation will be weak when you consider yourself to be helpless against your own urges, feelings and desires, or a victim of circumstances beyond your control."

Hi, My name is Josie and I am glad to be here!
I lost 30 pounds last year here at SparkPeople, then I injured my knee and couldn't walk or run anymore. I also lost my motivation to lose weight during the winter and spring months and in the process I put on almost all the weight I had worked so hard to lose.

Finally, I've made the decision to get a personal trainer. Having thought about it for years and having used the excuse that I couldn't afford it has been the wrong choice to make., Perhaps I would be much further along the road to reaching my goals if I had simply taken the leap. No more putting it off. Personal trainers can be expensive, but not as expensive as medical bills that come from being obese.

I'm definitely not getting younger and the longer I wait to do this, the harder it is to do anything.

The realization that I am dying causes me to really want to savor life and to keep my health as long as I possibly can. I look back and realize that I have wasted so much of this precious gift of life and that knowledge tears at my heart.

I cannot have both excuses and life.

I CHOOSE LIFE.
