Wow!! This is fantastic!! I can't believe all the additional resources here.

I'm a fan (although lots of people find it too "in your face" of Steve Siebold's free series,

Although I'm nowhere near their level of fitness, I also find it motivational to browse the pages and blogs of people in the fitness industry. A few that I really like are:

-Fit to be in Your Kitchen, which has a Facebook page that highlights their clients' success in addition to their own site. I'm in touch with the owner of this business, Ruben Sandoval, from time to time and find him to be extremely supportive of all people who are looking to reach their weight loss and fitness goals. I've never even been a client of his and he has never hesitated to offer encouragement when I've stopped by his Facebook page:

Yo
ur-Kitchen/257982811774


www.fit2beinyourkitchen.com/

-Recipes for Gals in Figure and Bodybuilding, whose Facebook page is also filled with inspirational stories and some great recipes:

www.facebook.com/RecipesforGals?ref=

&fref=ts


-pFIT blog--Bonnie Pfiester, along with her husband Steve, write daily blogs related to health and fitness that I find really motivational and filled with practical, no-nonsense advice. Bonnie personally responds to just about every comment on her blogs and is a lovely person in addition to being in fantastic shape herself:

pfitblog.com/

I also subscribe to Runs for Cookies, a blog written by SLIMKATIE. I love her down-to-earth style and honesty in talking about her past binge eating and struggles with maintenance (though she's doing beautifully now!):

I have a new podcast I like, also featuring Jon Fass. It's pretty nerdy in a scientific way, though. I'm OK with that but it might be a bit much for some.

This article describes a study done on women who wanted to lose weight being taught maintenance techniques BEFORE trying to lose weight. It is thought this makes for a greater chance of lasting success.

Inside Out Weight Loss podcasts are amazing. You can listen and download them for free here:

I also love anything by Geneen Roth, but in particular listen to her audio book of When Food is Food and Love is Love.

Here is a GREAT resource that I have used over the last few years. They do no have any recent podcasts, but their website has a library of them that are very worth listening to. I keep these on my smartphone to go back to listen to when I am exercising...
www.fat2fitradio.com/

Here are two other podcasts that I listen to each week via Itunes or Stitcher (app for streaming podcasts)
- Jillian Michaels (wide variety of topics)
- 2 Smart Dumbells (alot about Cross Fit and variety of guests)

Enjoy -
Amanda

I'm finding the book "Life Is Hard, Food Is Easy" very helpful when I start to backslide

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action. Since there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique.

... and here are my Podcast suggestions:

Leigh Peele has some great free iTunes podcasts and blog posts about fitness and nutrition, binging, maintenance, training, etc.
www.leighpeele.com/
What I love about her stuff is that she reads the literature carefully and pays attention to evidence-based approaches.

The Fitcast sometimes features Leigh and includes a personal trainer as well as a physical therapist. More emphasis on the training, but also good, free, science-based information.
thefitcast.com/

I have other reading suggestions but need to get going so I will post them later.

TINAJANE76 started a thread with a really good theme, and I didn't want it to get lost in the general discussion forum so I'm moving it here. I hope everyone can find it here easily when they're looking for resources.

Here's what she said:

Many of our members use resources outside of those we can find here on SparkPeople to help ensure their ongoing success. Another member, MANDELOVICH, recently turned me on to a great series of podcasts by Renee Stephens called 'Inside Out Weight Loss' that I think are wonderful for aligning our mind, body and spirit so we can be successful in managing our weight. Although some of her podcasts are geared towards those who are at the beginning of their weight loss process, I think many of them are totally relevant to people who are maintaining:

feeds.feedburner.com/insideoutweight
lo
ss


I've just listened to her most recent episode, "Dream Yourself Slim" and also one that addresses an ongoing concern of mine "Adding a Gray Scale to Black and White Thinking".

If you have a favorite podcast, blog or other site that you use and find helpful, I encourage you to please share a link to it here along with a brief description of why it helps you so that other members of the team can benefit as well.
