People here can--and do--inspire each other, however, motivation, like all energy, comes from within. It doesn't have to be life-long motivation; in fact, my best model for doing my exercise is an alcoholic friend and her relationship with AA. She asks for one-day-at-a-time motivation/energy to stay away from her nemesis. And she says if she makes the mistake of looking down the years and realizing how many and long they are, she gets very, very discouraged. One day at a time, she can manage.
It seems a good idea to use the gym for what you can't do at home. Me, the only reason I use the gym in summer is b/c it's air-conditioned. I can work out harder without melting.
That's a great quote, Rebcca, about owning our limitations (not). I'm gonna use that one quite often, I'm afraid.
