Hello! Welcome back! I've struggled my entire life with willpower - At first I've always gone super hard with something then it's dwindled and I've had a hard time getting that motivation back ~ It is a learning process for sure!! You're in the right place to find all sorts of motivation, Spark really is great! Best of luck to you in achieving your goals! emoticon

Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

Hello...I was on this site years ago but I just decided to get back on here. I am normally quite athletic but I have slacked off a bit this winter. I have gained about 12 pounds. I would like to loose 15. Been having a huge willpower issue :( So I thought...get back on this awesome site. It always helps. Thanks for listening :)
