What motivates you to stay committed to a healthy lifestyle?

I looked at this question yesterday and thought about an answer, something along these lines: I like the way I feel, the energy I have, positive feedback from family and friends, and the way my appearance has improved. A balanced, healthy diet and regular exercise have re-newed my vitality - I feel younger than I did four years go!

While this is true, after reading through some of my team threads, I also realize that the support and encouragement from my Spark friends is a powerful motivator to pursuing a healthy lifestyle. emoticon

Giving and receiving support, and having the opportunity to meet some of my Spark friends in person, is a wonderful gift.
