    I will be sharing these ideas with my friends. Thanks for such an awesome article.
  • I like the "wow" factor just as it's written. It would be soooooo cool for someone to say that to me. It would really cause me to grin. I don't want anyone to say, "You lost weight!" I want them to say, "You look great!!!" That would definitely make my day. :D
  • I voted "I have someone who pushes me" I have a great primary doctor who is 100% on my side. Being obese, diabetic, disabled... I need support other than my family. My husband and our daugther are great but I need someone who was honest with me and would point me in the right direction even though sometimes what she says might hurt.

    I really need to stay motivated because whenever I slip and back up a couple of steps I get depressed and guess what??? I turn to food (specially sweets) for comfort... Can't help myself, it's like a compulsion.
  • I REALLY needed this article . It got to me in the nick-of-time. Im printing it out and posting it all over the place :)
  • Great article!

    I desperately need to be more motivated, both with exercise and also with sticking to a good food plan.
    I KNOW how good it feels to move my body - whether it be walking or cycling.

    I don't have to really WANT to exercise, but once I get out there and start, I ALWAYS feel better and am glad that I did it : ) ! Getting out today will help me get out there tomorrow - (I am talking to myself here, too : ) .

    After all, time is going to pass by anyway, right?

    Wishing everyone much peace & joy!
  • I needed that...I am having such a difficult time staying motivated to exercise regularly and change my eating habits. I'm excellent at rationalizing, lol. But the Wow factor and staying healthy for my children's sake grabbed my attention. Although I may never have the same figure as I did in my twenties, I sure would love to look in the mirror naked and feel confident.
  • Wow, simple but profound, especially momentum. Loved it - I'm going to be that object in motion -thanks.
  • Your article couldn't have come at a better time...I lost my motivation, but now its found!!

    Thank you!!
  • #6 really did it for me. After leading a very active life to being a full-time caregiver to my suddenly disabled father, I realized how much I missed the momentum. Getting a "WOW" a couple of weeks ago really made me think of how I could bring the momentum back into my life. An internet search for some tips led me to Spark!
  • Number 5 is what motivates me.....I have only one daughter and she is my world!!!
  • Number 6 really hit it for me. Every day I'd plug along with my walks, and after a few weeks I started to realize I had a real streak going that I didn't want to break! This article came at the perfect time for me as it's been a real struggle this week. Thank you Zach, for bringing it home!
  • Great article!
    The "Wow factor" really got to me.
    I think because I fear the opposite..."Wow! Does she ever look fat."
    Very helpful...thanks.
  • This is a good one!
  • One of THE BEST Spark articles I've read! I'm printing this out and posting it on my fridge! Thanks again Spark, you're amazing!!
