I've been on and off Spark several times in the last 5 years. =)
I go through phases where I get tired of tracking, tired of watching the scale NOT move. I work full time, go to school part time, have a hubby and 3 kids. Sometimes I just don't want to take the time to log on here.
But always, when I need to get back on track, I'm right back on Spark. It moves up on the priority list.
So, I know exactly what you mean about losing motivation and finding it again. WELCOME BACK!!! I came back just a couple of weeks ago myself.
If you are a runner, it doesn't matter how far or how fast. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." J Bingham

Hello everyone! I have been gone from SparkPeople for a few months, because I had lost motivation, but am realizing that I NEED to get back into the habit of working out regularly and tracking what I eat. I know it is a weird day to start, but I am getting back on track tomorrow (or today, since it's after midnight) with a trip to the gym, tracking food, and restarting my goals. This time I WILL stick to it!!

"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power." -Alan Cohen
