Hello there!!! So glad to have found you all motivator seekers. My motivations has been on a roller coaster. I am learning to balance family and personal healthy so we can all be healthy together. My kids are 12 & 11 yrs. old so they see that I want to be healthier and they are using the treadmill as well. I just get overwhelmed and sink into my hole. So I hope this group will provide the motivation I need w/o feeling overwhelmed w/ the challenges. tori

I Pledge to forgive myself for the past & keep going no matter how many times I fall. I have the strength and self discipline. I will give my challenges to the Lord. I WILL HAVE A FRESH START EVERY DAY!!

10/10 - 172

For the last several months I have pretty much given up on the idea of loosing weight. I've always been hopeful, positive, and determined but this year it has been a very different story. I've been mopey, down, self-conscious, and down right lazy. That is NOT me and it stops this minute.

I am picking myself up and dusting myself off today. I will start by throwing away my heavy cream coffee sitting on my desk and giving up the stuff 5 out of 7 days a week. I will weigh myself in the morning before I go and use my new eliptical. I WILL NOT let dust settle on it!

Now, I need to go fill up my water bottle, and attempt to remember what I ate today. :)

I have tried cancelling cable in my house. STRONG opposition from my hubby--he's a tv addict, too. My daughter didn't really care one way or the other. GREAT move!

Joining the Y is a big step in the right direction. And, of course, so is joining this team emoticon

Hello all, I'm 30 years old and I am incredibly lazy. I swam competitively in Jr. High and High School and used to be in excellent shape. I now barely have any energy to get off the couch after work and on weekends. Part of my problem has been that I don't eat well, SparkPeople Nutrition Tracker has helped with this immensely and I have noticed a definite improvement in my mood. But the other part of my problem is that I am terribly addicted to TV and never exercise any more. I'm having a real hard time finding the motivation to start moving.

So, I have done the following: I've joined my local YMCA. I have cancelled my cable TV. And I've joined this team. Hoping y'all can help me motivate emoticon

Hi all, I'm Dixie and I'm starting SparkPeople all over again for about the tenth time. But I am putting much more into it this time around. I have a goal of weighing 27 pounds less by my daughter's graduation in May and I will be there with a nice new dress on.

Hey all

I just joined this team today. i have been on the site since beginning of the year but in that time i have been unemployeed for almost 6 months. Just back to work again since Aug 1. I am acutally working a FT and PT job now. I still exercise almost everyday without issue. My problem is i have no motivation lately to track what i eat and drink. I also find that i drink alot of my calories, and my new job is near a Wendys so I find myself going in there almost everyday I work. I have been doing crazy hours probably close to 45 to 50 a week now. Just finished 11 days straight of working without a day off. Not sure if its the amount I am working now that is just not making me want to track, maybe its just that I am tired I dont know. But I need motivation thats for sure

My name is Kris. I'm currently almost 50 pounds over weight after having my daughter (she was 10 pounds 10 ounces at birth). She just turned one in July, and while I have lost 60 pounds since she was born, I still have a long ways to go.

My goals are to eat healthier, drink water, and to start exercising. I don't think I quite expected just how exhausting (and wonderful) having a child could really be, and I rarely exercise any more. I really want to change that. Both my husband and I have gained a lot of weight over the last 4 years, and we are both trying to slim down and get healthier. We have gym memberships and access to exercise equipment at home, yet we rarely actually exercise.

When I joinged SparkPeople back in 2008 it helped me loose almost 30 pounds, so I'm hoping that it will help again :).

Hi everyone :) My name is Flavia, im 24 years old, and currently weigh 498lbs. My short term goal right now is to lose 60lbs so I can be cleared for a gastric sleeve surgery. I have a hard time with self motivation, and in turn self confidence and self love, but I'm learning day by day that just starting on the track to getting healthy and wanting to improve myself mentally and physically is opening up the door to learning to love myself and having a positive attitude :) I'm currently having a lot of family problems that are pretty bad, dangerous and extremely stressful. August was an awful month. It started good with my birthday on the 6th, but after that we had our septic back up at 10pm and flood one of the bathrooms (lucikly the man came out and pumped it for us at 11.30pm, was so grateful for that), the next week I had to put a knife to my uncles chest and threaten to kill him, because he was holding a loaded and cocked gun to my mothers head. After we called the cops we found out he was growing 9lbs of pot in our attic, so that was a fun week right there. The week after that, we had a small earthquake, which if you were on the north eastern coast I'm sure you felt as well. it freaked my grandmother out and me as well, as we leave close to the beach and there has never ever been an earthquake here before. Then, Miss Irene reared her ugly head and we had to evacuate, and two tornados touched down in our little town, another thing that has never happened in the history of the town, luckily not near our house. We got away with just a few trees being destroyed and some siding peeling off. To top it off, this week my aunt and I had a huge fight, and she pretty much said that my mother should have been shot a long time ago due to her mouth (my mother may have a slight attitude, but it only comes out when she has to defend herself, which unfortunately in this family is a common thing), and that I should be the one going to jail because I pulled a knife on him, and she also accused me of using my weight (500lbs, nearly) as a crutch and that I'm mentally unbalanced because I go to therapy (which is needed for a clearance for my surgery, something she fails to acknowledge). That was the least of what she said, but I won't bore you with more details, as I've already written a small novel it seems like :) It may be too much information, but I need to get it out somewhere, as I'm sure some of you have experienced before as well!

Excited to meet you all, and to be active in the group!

Hello everyone,

I'm hoping that by joining this team and participating in the challenges I can get back on track. The heat of the summer and various vacations have caused me to gain a little of the 20 pounds I lost. My gym is closed this week for some renovations, but I will be able to return there starting next week and hopefully get back to a normal exercise routine.

I have set a mini fall goal for myself of being able to bicycle 10-15 miles in an hour by the end of October. We shall see how that one goes. :)

My name is Melissa, and I'm 19 years old. My fitness goals are to tone up my body, and add some lean muscle mass to it. Because there's nobody in my life who has similar goals to me, I decided to join this group for some motivation and positivity. :) I also hope to provide some motivation to other members as well.

Hi Everyone, I'm Pam. I'm 64 with some health issues. I am a big friend to SP but only walk around the site. I look for motivation and I get it from the teams I have joined. They all have a positive attitude. I just don't do what I am supposed to do. For some reason this morning, I was looking at Spark Guy's page and found Sue's(goats03) New to SP comment. Then I looked at her page, and there you were, Motivation & Positive Attitude Team. Also I have recently found other SP friends right here in Chambersburg, PA, but due to a few minor health issues I haven't met them face to face yet. I am hoping to find the Motivation & Positive Attitudes from all of you, my new found friends.

HI I'm Sharon,
I joined your group because it is so important to focus on what we do right instead of what we do wrong. That has helped me lose 40lb and I want to finish the race I've started by finding something positive everyday.

Hi,I am always searching for inspiration to continue my weight loss journey. I recently lost 8 pounds, following a specific meal plan and walking as much as possible. I read a story about someone who lost a lot of weight by walking 2 - 5 miles a day. I need to do some strength training, so I took up you challenge for lifting weights. Its fun to have other people who are working on feeling better about themselves. The weight loss success stories are inspirational! emoticon

Hello every one:)
I was looking for a team that was well A Motivational & Positive team on SP & this team was highlighted through SP.

I went to reading a blog of you fearless leader WANNABFIT_47 and she and I have become friends and i've also asked her a few ? about the team.

I have also seen a few familiar faces also on the posts of the team and thought this must be a great team.

I might be new to the team but not to Sparks I've been with them for over 4 years.
If you want to know more about me please go to my Spark page and read what makes me who I am, or should I say SMILE.

I look forward to getting to know you and cheering every one on in this journey that we are in.

Hi! I'm Erin, a special education teacher in south Texas. I have a hard time with creating a positive attitude for myself, so I thought this team would be a perfect place to learn from others and grow into the positive person I know I can be. I hope to get to know you all well! emoticon emoticon

Hi! I started this "new me" journey in January. I joined the Y and started cardio workouts and strength training. So far, I have lost 30 pounds and let me tell you they have eeked off. It has been a constant struggle and I decided that now is the time to get help and support. I'm a nurse and I work 3 nights a week. I love my job and it works for my family but I think the nights are really holding me back as far as my weight loss is concerned that and I'm 46 and female. So, here I am. Excited to make it to my goal, feel better and hopefully make some weight loss buddies:)

Once at a meeting the instructor said, "If you are baking and you accidentally drop an egg, do you start throwing all of the eggs on the floor and breaking them?" Well, when we go off our diets do we just keep eating and eating and gorge ourselves because of a slip?

Hello everyone,
I joined yesterday and I am enjoying all the advice and positive encouragement so far! Good luck to everyone in their weight loss journey! emoticon emoticon

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again

Hi Everyone,

Happy to join this team!

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” —Theodore Roosevelt

Hello!
I think of myself as a positive person, and I think I sometimes radiate that, but I went through all my current and old blogs, and I spend a lot of time feeling bad! Time for a new outlook!
Glad you're here ~
