I believe in the process! steps......... emoticon

    Oh my goodness - I can so relate to those feelings! I have had to really LEARN to enjoy working out. It's just not my very favorite way to spend my time, however, I really do appreciate the weight loss, the added flexibility and strength and the stress relief. I have come to appreciate the way it makes me feel, so I do it. I try to go to the gym at least two times a week minimum and do strength training, but mostly - I just walk. I try to get up and walk as much as I can. I hope you will reach the point where you see it for what it is - a means to an end! emoticon

    I'm there with you. I don't look at exercising a punishment, but I can't say its a reward either. It's one of those "I have to do this to be healthy" things, so I do it. I'm just not one of those, "Ya! I get to exercise today! Woo Hoo! Can't wait!"

    Baby steps and changing it up every once in awhile. When you find an activity that you like, do it!
Honestly what kept me going was results. Results led to dreams and dreams can only be accomplished with hard work and dedication. You will get there.

    An idea: I'm on Fitocracy. It's sort of a little like SP but VERY worktout specific. It's like playing a game, you level up for earning points. It may be also get props from strangers:)

    Exercise is a reward, not a punishment for eating... ooo-kay. :D It's so cute when SP posts motivational pics like that!

I'm lazy - I started SP the way I mean to go and so removed the extra calories SP gave me based on the premise that I would be working out X number of times a week - because if I do exercise - I'll add the minutes in myself and decide if I really need extra nutrition just for lots of walking, yoga, or stretching.

So I'm basically using a caloric deficit to achieve my goal and I'm okay with that. Providing I don't get in my own way and sabotage myself!

The great thing about SP is it's not one size fits all - and we can cobble together the best SP has to offer that also works for us.

... and now I'm hearing the Home Improvement theme song in my head!

    I love and miss Home Improvement ; ) I will never be one of those people that workout 2hrs a day. I've been doing this for almost 3 years, and while I don't see it as punishment, I certainly don't see it as a reward either. It is what it is... I need to do it so I don't go back to being 300 pounds... I do it, so my kids understand you need to live a healthy life... I do it, at this point, for my sanity.
