Thank you so much for your kind words!! It really helps to have so many people that are so supportive and really want the best for themselves too. It is so hard, and I was really thinking about that today too. What do I do for me? That was my question of the day. I love this website thus far, it's incredible how many sweet, awesome people there are on here.

Mellisa - First off welcom to SP! And congradulations for making the commitment to yourself. I think you will find that SP has MANY ways to keep you motivated and accountable. I have made so many great friends here and I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for them. "Time" has always been an excuse for me to. I work full-tim and have 3 kids, so there really isn't much spare time in my days. You have to realize that you are important and you deserve 30, 60, 90 minutes out of the day for yourself. I used to think I was taking away something from my family by taking that time for me, but having that time to work out has made me feel better about myself which has made me a better wife and mother. When Mommy is happy, everyone is happy! I hope this has helped a little and I look for to seeing you reach all your goals! - Cindy

Hello my name is Melissa and so far this website seems like a great way to make myself accountable and also meet fellow friends who are also trying to lose weight to get healthy. My biggest struggle this winter has been to get motivated to do something about my recent 40 pound weight gain shortly starting after my dream wedding in October. I know that my Vitamin D and B-12 are dangerously low and the doctors are taking care of that part but there is no reason why I should have gained the weight that I did, but it's also a wake up call for me. I have always been athletic, but my body is changing a long with my age. I would love to have new friends to keep me motivated and share great ideas with me!! I am a great motivator as well, and love all of this positive energy on this website.

One more very important question I have for all of you who have stayed motivated (unlike me): How did you initially get started? What did you do that helped you stay motivated and not use all of the easy excuses like most of us do.... for starters- "I'm too tired!!" I am the too tired girl but the reality and truth is... I am soo tired. So any advice would brighten my day and maybe make this a little easier!!

Thanks all of you!!! We can do this!!!
Melissa
