I added this article to my favorites a week ago, and then ignored it. Today is the day I am geting back on track so I read it again...I am going to try and read it each day this week! Going out of town on business started the roller coaster and then I got sick and used that as an excuse...no more excuses...thank you to the author!!!
Wow, it seems like the author of this article has been sitting on my shoulder watching me! From the first papragraph she had me pegged. I was going full steam ahead losing 24 lbs in 9 weeks and then in March I got sick, got better, went on vacation and just never regained the motivation. I lost and regained the same 3.5 lbs throughout the month ending with a 0 loss for the month. I feel so tired and discouraged; thank you so much taking your time and encourgaing me and others like me.
I also avoided this article as I was feeling low and not at all motivated. Then I read it and printed it out and found that just by printing it I felt better. Have been doing OK with the diet and exercise but because of family stuff have been feeling down with low energy levels. After reading and re-reading the article I realise that although I have been down I have been very busy and active so am feeling more positive. This was just the boost I needed to kick start my life again thanks to Spark.
I bypassed the article for a couple days because I just have had no motivation to do anything. I thought if I joined weight watchers I would get back on track. since last fall I gained 20lbs back cloth are not fitting anymore. I printed out this article and hopefully get back on track

I was cruising along almost 2 months with steady success when my life hit a speed bump. 2 weeks ago my 19 year old daughter had surgery and was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and as a teacher I was already trying to juggle report cards, parent conferences and my evaluation, all at the same time. There was not a minute left in the day for me and I let the workouts go. Life has stabilized somewhat but I'm still telling myself that I will begin my workouts again...tomorrow. Thanks for the reminder that any little thing will help. So,...today is the day I will get Back on Track!

I just went to the doctor last week and while I thought I had lost 21 lbs, he said I had actually lost 25. So I was elated. But for the last week and a half I've been slacking off. Not planning anything. I still have quite a way to go and guess what? I've been cruising on my success. And gained 2 lbs back. This article couldn't have come at a better time!! Thank you!
Thank you Nicole!!! After a month of nursing my daughter back to health after surgery and not having time to take care of self I needed to hear this. It was so encouraging--especially the perfection part. I'm looking forward to doing your 15 minute jump rope routine this afternoon ;)
I broke my arm about a month ago and lost all momentum. Since I'm right-handed and I broke my right arm, there was much I couldn't do and things that I could took a lot longer. I got very frustrated and discouraged, comfored myself with food, and really backslid on the exercise. The cast should come off in about a week but I can start with some of these suggestions today. This will definitely be a "favorite". Thanks!!
