  • 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!!! - 4/6/2008 9:32:38 PM
  • 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. - 4/5/2008 3:17:12 PM

  • 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. - 4/1/2008 2:19:13 AM
  • 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 - 3/30/2008 12:40:13 PM
  • 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! - 3/29/2008 9:11:08 AM

    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! - 3/28/2008 4:55:41 PM
  • 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 ;) - 3/28/2008 9:06:57 AM
  • I so needed to hear this today!! As always, exquisite Spark timing!! I think I'll do more work on my visual board today!! - 3/28/2008 8:45:26 AM
  • March has been terrible for me. This article came at just the right time! - 3/27/2008 11:35:45 AM
  • Thanks Nicole, these suggestions are wonderful and made me feel better- I think I'm too hard on myself, because I've already done lots of these things today! - 3/27/2008 10:29:12 AM
  • Just what I needed. I have been losing my motivation this last month due to family visiting, birthday parties, our anniversary, vacation, and my buddy not being there and keeping me in check.

    Today is a new day, and I will do it~
    Thanks so much!
    God's blessings..

  • 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!! - 3/26/2008 5:38:11 PM
  • Wow Nicole were you sitting in my head transcribing the thoughts onto paper. Thanks for a wonderful article. If I don't motivate from this.....then I must be dead. SP is a wost wonderful and caring place when trying to lose weight. When you think you've reached all you can do, suddenly there is a hand to pull you up in the form of an article, a friendly email etc. Eternally grateful to all the SP. - 3/26/2008 4:56:49 PM

    THANK YOU - this was oh-so-perfectly timed! I've been stuck for about a year, just spinning my wheels, backsliding a bit.... No more - back to the work at hand! - 3/26/2008 2:34:22 PM
