Indeed it is Sandy, indeed it is.

Quit stuffing your face and face your stuff.
Be yourself, everyone else is taken.
I think therefore I am dangerous.
Don't make excuses, make changes.

I am going to add an 8th reason...
FOR YOURSELF.

It's not who you think you are that holds you back...it's who you think you're not...

Hey Sandy, do you mind if I borrow this for my Montreal team?

I saw this on one of my other teams and I thought you all might like to see it!

Here are 7 reasons to stay motivated.
Use one or all of them to keep the fire burning inside you.
1. Confidence
How did it feel after you succeeded at something? Or even on a much smaller scale when you
finally walked up the stairs at work without losing your
breath? The more you accomplish, the more you'll believe in
yourself.
2. Make the week easier
Ever felt like a week was taking forever? It feels like Friday, but
it's only Tuesday? This happens when you're not working
towards anything. When you have a goal in mind, you'll want
to participate in your own life. The week will not only go
faster, but be more enjoyable.
3. Gives you purpose
Every once in a while, we need a good reason to get out of
bed. Look after yourself with good healthy habits. Eat the
healthy breakfast that's going to jumpstart your day, go for
your morning jog, or walk down the driveway and grab the
newspaper. When you're motivated, you have a reason to do
what you do.
4. For your kids and your grandkids. And their kids, too. The healthier you
are, the longer you'll be around to watch your kids grow
and to spoil your grandchildren. They want you to be
around as long as possible; consider this just another
present that you have to give them.
5. Power of momentum
It's a scientific fact - something in motion tends to stay in
motion. Momentum builds quickly and can lead to great
results. Suddenly, you're not only working for your own goal,
but also helping others at SparkPeople work toward theirs.
This gives you even more reason to reach your goals.
6. The 'wow' effect
Picture this: Walking into a restaurant, you run into
someone you haven't seen for a long time, and their eyes
light up. They gasp, "Wow, you look great! What are you
doing?" By sticking with your goals and making sure you
are, this can happen and is a great lead-in for you to share your SparkPeople story.
7. Share the Story
When friends and family see how hard you're working,
they'll wonder how they can reach their own goals. Guess
who they're going to look to for help? By staying
motivated, you'll not only help yourself, but others too.
Keep gaining experience and knowledge on this site, because the more you do, the
more you will learn and understand. You'll discover which
tactics work best for you and which ones don't. Plug into
the Spark System. Working at losing weight is like weeding the garden -
not the most enjoyable job in the world, but when you're
done, all that's left are beautiful flowers and YOU.

Peace Out,
Sandy
