So I find myself stuck in a sticky motivational rut.
My fiancée and I are nominally working on our diet and fitness together... but she works two jobs and rarely has time to think about what she eats, nevermind get to the gym. She told me the other day she only goes for me; her own motivation is gone. I, on the other hand, have TOO much time on my hands, and I am using a lot of it to research diet/fitness questions, plan workouts, workout at home, cook better food for us, and take advantage of SP.
I showed her SP, and her response was something to the effect, "Great, but I don't have time for that sort of thing." Which is, of course, totally true.
Beyond that, she is discouraged by a relative lack of progress -- she's only lost 2-3 pounds in a few weeks with no apparent visual difference, whereas my 20-pound loss is quite noticable on my face and neck.
My biggest challenge now is to find ways to get and keep her motivated.

Our greatest glory is not in never failing but in rising up every time we fail.

People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.
