I'm a second timer too, I've noticed that a lot of people here are. For me, It's not so much keeping motivated, for me it is a different lifestyle. The first time I joined here was in 2005, I failed miserably and dropped out of Sparks. I gained enough weight to put me over 300, I knew I had to do something. I rejoined Sparks in 2007, not so much to lose weight but to learn to live with myself. After that, It was- not to deny myself anything, but to actually allow myself to eat and not feel guilty. I learned to have patience with myself. If I have a bad day, well gee, it happens. But the good days out number the bad. And that's what matters. Having patience matters, and breaking goals up into smaller ones that makes me feel good about my progress.

And you can do what this article suggests, (this is what I'm doing- I have over 135# to lose)...Now this article, suggests to break down your weight lose into 10% at a time. (Which is what I did) And I finally lost some weight. It is SOOOOOOO nice to see that weight lost ticker move which motivates me even more. Instead of saying...I have 150 pounds to reach my goal... by setting your "1st" goal at 10%, your closer to your goal. It's reachable - it's manage-able, it's doable.


Here is the link to the article: The second page really gets to the heart of the article...

Just keep smiling...that's all. Find what makes YOU happy, and have patience with yourself.
