    I'm like kelliibfit I will start exercising for a couple weeks then stop. ,not sure why . Just started back today. - 5/17/2014 4:14:01 PM
  • Like all tracking, however difficult, it takes the emotions out of it and makes us objective viewers of ourselves. I have been on SP for two months and am learning how to look at food and exercise as things we need to do to live, but the way we do both as the keys to living well. The first article said the most inspirational thing to me that I have found to really be true these last two months: the work you put in and the results you will see in your life are the same skills you will need to overcome any challenge in your life, and applying them to this journey will make us feel powerful, capable, and wonderful about ourselves. - 5/1/2014 7:34:06 AM

  • Dean, you really get it! Your article spoke to me...I was feeling anxious just reading it and felt like running into the kitchen to eat something! Instead your article fed a part of me I thought nobody else understood. I can do this, thank you! - 1/31/2013 10:01:17 AM
  • Great column. It is easy to discount a little exercise as both hard and insignificant (because it doesn't bring double digit results immediately). But small doses bring strength and endurance built step by step over time.

    You sure won't get more fit and trim by sitting on the couch. - 12/20/2012 8:10:53 AM
  • Thanks for this article. I was just about to bail out on exercising today. I also thought of something.....I have not been counting the 2x daily walks with my dog. I walk him morning and night and have not been thinking of this as exercise! Usually I do a 45 min workout video or 11 min chair exercise in addition to the dog walking. So I am doing more than what I thought! I will include your 3 points in my daily journal log that I maintain on my fitness page. Luckily you can track all of this on Spark!! - 10/8/2012 8:59:01 PM

  • THIS A VERY INSPIRATIONAL ARTICLE, AND I HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BUT WEIGHT AS I FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS OF HOW TO EXERCISE FOR MY SELF AND BETTER HEALTH. - 12/4/2009 5:21:04 PM
  • WOW! Reading the article was just what I need! I was going strong for about 4 weeks and then the last 2 weeks I haven't exercised at all - just seemed to make excuse after excuse. I just started back exercising these last two days and wonder to myself why I stopped in the first place. I ALWAYS feel better physically and mentally after I work out.'

    Thanks you for the motivation to keep it moving!!!!
