    I cannot tell you how much this article was spoke to me! I just had this argument this morning and lost so it gives me so much motivation to work on it a day at a time and remember that we're all having this argument with ourselves everyday. I'll think of this article everytime I wake in the morning! Thanks so much! - 4/3/2009 1:14:59 PM
  • I do this all the time! Frequently have to pray 4 the motivation to 'just do it' & then once I have i'm away & feeling all the better 4 it. BUT NOT @ 4.45!!!!!! - 3/27/2009 7:49:45 PM

  • An ABSOLUTELY GREAT article!! It was like a good book....I couldn't get through it fast enough, and yet I didn't want to reach the last page!! Thanks a lot!! - 3/5/2009 2:30:44 PM
  • I loved this article. I was starting to fall off the motivational bandwagon when I read this. Made me reaffirm that I can do this, and I will do this.

    No more excuses for me then! - 2/25/2009 12:55:06 AM
  • Funny, I had this battle this morning with myself! EXERCISE WON!! I felt so much better after. - 1/30/2009 11:03:52 AM
  • Great article. When I start making excuses I just tell myself that it doesn't matter. I've already decided to run that day so I might as well knock off all the negative internal dialog. Inside my head it goes something like this, "You KNOW you're going to run 5 miles today so why are you bogging yourself down with all this bull?" And soon the wannabe excuses evaporate and I'm getting my runners high :-) - 1/10/2009 10:49:13 PM
  • I am battling myself right at this very minute, which is precisely why I was searching motivational articles to read -- this one is great! Here I go...!!! - 11/22/2008 9:46:10 PM
  • This is a great article! I am the queen of exercise excuses. I wish my mother would read this, sometimes I am worried for her health... - 11/18/2008 10:07:52 AM
  • This is, hands down, the best motivating article I have read on SP. I know that voice well (don't we all!) but I make her shut up every day. She's the reason I got in this mess in the first place so she doesn't really know very much at all!!! - 11/14/2008 8:07:50 PM
  • Thanks for this! I was about to have my third 'cheat day' this week, but I won't now. I'll have in next week as planned. It's not worth ruining my progress. - 11/14/2008 3:19:27 PM
