I get motivated when my clothes start to get loose. I also like the feeling of accomplishment I get when I stick with something.

Ok, I have a confession to make. Another huge motivator is when others notice and comment on my changes. Today as I was coming in from work, I realized I'd forgotten to fill out a form. So wearing my legging capris and a t shirt I headed back in to work. One of my coworkers said "Wow, Safiyah, look at you, you've got a great body and you're always hiding it under those baggy clothes!"

I responded by saying those clothes FIT when I started, and I was too cheap to buy new ones. I laughed, but I floated on cloud 9 all the way home. I'm no where near my goal, but I'm feeling pretty fantastic today. :-)

Ok, I'm a bit of a nerd I know, but I'm really self motivated. Knowing that if I can get my goals out of the way for the day I'm good the rest of the day will drag me out of bed to do my workouts. I love the fast break week in the book The Spark, and combining that with Joyce Vedral's workouts is JUST what I need to get this tired old body back in shape!

Share some of your motivators here, let us know what motivates you to exercise, what motivated you to join SP and what is motivating you to reach your goals? What gets you going, and keeps you going when all you want to do is sit down?

This is a life changing commitment, one that changes our lives as we make the commitment, and keeps changing our lives as we keep it. Even though we all have to do this for ourselves, we're NOT alone.
