I'm so glad I entered the Sparkpeople Official After Contest. Even though I didn't win, the contest motivated me to get my husband to take a picture of me now that I've reached my goal and stayed there for three years. Using that picture as my profile means that every time I look at my Sparkpage, there's a reminder of how I want to look for the rest of my life, no matter how many years that may be. I think I'll get him to print out a copy of it to post on my refrigerator, so I'll keep focussed on healthy meals and snacks that are low fat, low salt and low calorie. It'll also remind me to keep up my 30 minutes of yoga each day and even expand it to 45 min. I've found that anything that keeps me motivated, such as rereading sections of "The Spark", tracking my meals and exercise, and chatting with my teammates is definitely worth the time it takes.
