HOUNDLOVER1 Because she is so smart about everything from nutrition to dog training! I have learned so much from her, she has no idea.
And ANIDUCK is another really good person to learn about nutrition from. Clean nutrition.
And FIT_ARTIST not only smart about nutrition and fitness, but has WONDERFUL recipes that she shares.
I have many sparkfriends over the years, some of the people that stay here and teach others really deserve a hand! emoticon

I am re-doubling my efforts - I have been "maintaining" for over 2 months now! Time to start walking at lunch AND packing my lunch! It is the only time of the day that I can squeeze in exercise!!!

Me too, Skee. I love to look at their sparkpage and see their motivation and if they motivate me, I let it be known and I usually friend them because I want their spark in my corner.

I tear up thinking about the help, support and motivation I have recieved from Spark People. Some I have interacted with in teams, some I have just read their page or blog, and some in just a single post have touched my heart.

Something about SP is magical -- somehow, when I came here, I found people like me, that just do their best every day, and they truly care about others. With the help of all of you, I have finally been able to keep the weight off for over 2.5 years, and I am making through those stressful situations that would have sent me for comfort food binges -- not always perfectly, but successfully.

Thanks to all.

FITWITHIN motivated me! Her introduction is so open and honest. You can feel her pain, but mostly you feel how beautiful she is. How sad that the world can't see the beauty that is inside rather than the superficial beauty of flesh!

I motivate myself, which is how it SHOULD be for everyone here. However, there are certain people, like Indygirl that INSPIRE me, but that's different than where the motivation comes from.

To be honest, the motivation really has to come from within in order to be truly successful in this journey of losing the weight and keeping it off. Otherwise, the external drivers can fade, and you're left with feeling disillusioned and frustrated. When the fire comes from within and you want to live healthy for YOU, then you tend to work through the frustration and down times in the journey and come through the other side a bit wiser and hopefully with a new commitment to the process.

Just some food for thought...

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

I guess the thing that motivates me the most is my uncle. He joined 2 weeks before I did. Now it's a challenge to see if I can catch him in points and over all fitness. Or if he slacks off.

Just having a community to interact with, to discuss things with. I am maintaining my weight loss goal so it is nice to also be able to discuss other, non-weight related topics here.

I am not really into Spark points and some of the little things that motivate others such as tracking your food and logging how much water you drink every day. I spin the wheel and that is kind of fun just to see where it will land, but I can't say it motivates me.

I think a good new goal for me would be to post on at least one person's blog or write a Sparkmail to somebody every day. I love interacting with others here, and I hope I help some people sometimes.
