I am trying to recover from recently coming off a ventilator in December 2011. The Dr would like for me to lose 100 pounds. I am having difficulty losing any weight. I am still on oxygen 24/7 but am close to getting off of it. I believe if I could lose even 20# my breathing would improve.

Welcome to Spark! Motivation is strange thing - the key is to finding what motivates you. Baby steps though - set yourself goals that are very achieveable and celebrate every victory. You can do this!

My best advice for staying motivated is to focus on small consistent choices first and work your way up to harder things. Small steps I like to focus on are: logging into SP each day, drinking 8 glasses of water, getting in 10 minutes of exercise, and choosing to eat fruits and veggies. Once I'm good with those, I work on tracking my food and increasing my exercise. I have found tracking my food to be invaluable. I didn't realize how many calories different food choices had until I started tracking it.

Good luck on your journey to better health! You can do this and you are worth it!
