Here's a big reminder that you can do it. I find that when someone close to me is so motivated I get extra lazy to compensate for them being such a go getter. My husband is always fresh and slim and ready to conquer the world...and I sometimes feel that I could never be as on top of it as he is so why try? But, I've recently decided that he can be as crazy as he wants and I'll focus on me. I have two little girls that I can set an example of what a balanced life looks like. So we've started a morning stretching routine, and have silly freeze dance moments, and go on family walks. It's no marathon, but it's a step in the right direction. You can do it...just pick some natural things that you enjoy, and get your boys involved in the fun. Next month, you'll be ready to take it to the next level.
Over time I have seen many people come and go at the local gym. I find that many let their feelings get in the way. Try doing something small so that you may notice something. For example, jump start your day by stretching and doing some ab exercises BEFORE you get out of bed. Wear 3 pound legs weights for part of the day. Use stretch bands, perhaps during commercial breaks while watching tv. When you finally notice some kind of good feeling, unexpectedly, that may motivate you more to do other things as well.

Hello everyone! I am a 45 year old mother of two boys. They are great kids tall and thin like their dad. My husband is a runner and very slim. He ran the Philly Marathon in November, what a proud day that was. While he trained I figured out how to feed him, problem is I ate like a marathoner without the training. I have been cruising the Sparkpeople site for several months now, have read The Spark TWICE and I just can't seemed to cross the start line. I need to lose 100 lbs and am going in the wrong direction. I need some one to give me a push, or something. I guess I just need to jump in the water and swim. I think I am afraid of not succeeding AGAIN!! My wonderful husband has signed up for the NY Marathon lottery and I need to be on a solid upswing before he starts the serious training. I need help. Any thoughts would be wonderful.
