I, along with many of you, have had some bouts with "losing" my motivation. I've been reaching out and reading up, hoping to get that Spark back...
Today I read the following passage in a Spark article that resonated with me:
"Your motivation will be as strong as the amount of effort you put into making your own decisions (regardless of what they might be) with conscious awareness. Your motivation will be weak when you consider yourself to be helpless against your own urges, feelings and desires, or a victim of circumstances beyond your control."
This applies for me not only in my health, weight, and eating habits, but in other areas of my life as well. I am NOT helpless or a victim of circumstances and neither are you. Be aware of your own decisions, without judgment. We're not perfect and results should not be measured daily or even weekly- but over the long haul. We're doing this and we are making a positive change, no matter how slowly it seems to come! Every time we make a single positive choice, we are closer to our goals than the moment before.
