Energized like I can take on the world but also a little tired knowing I had a good workout.

Energized and happy I completed my workout.

If you go by the way side on an eating bing, just get up and start again. I always say I will be on a diet for the rest of my life because I love food. But since Spark People I can eat the right foods and not get out of control. Keep up the good work no matter what people say about you. Love yourself. Do it for yourself and no one else. This keep me going.

Lately, I just feel like garbage but it's because I can't work out like I used due to a crappy schedule and lack of money to eat properly.

"Life is short, forgive sooner, love with true love, laugh without control and always keep smiling."

"If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down. "

Great actually! After a serious sweat I feel like I have pushed myself further than before. Any stress from the workday is gone and I look forward to recovering and a good night's sleep.

I don't get that energetic "runners high" that people talk about getting after I work out. But I feel proud of myself for exercising and not sitting on the couch or at the computer. But I am usually STARVING when I get home from the gym.

happy! My two toddlers could do anything and not upset me, AND THAT is really something. I love the post-workout endorphins!

Feel good if I'm really sweaty and tired, but after I'm done I always feel bloated and my tummy sticks out! I don't know why. It's like all my muscles are so glad to be done that they just completely relax, haha. I really don't know. But other than that, yes! Unless I didn't meet my goals for that day

I usually feel real good. Especially when I exercise after not being able to find my motivation

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.
