    I HAVE ADDED MY WEIGHT LOSE JOURNEY TO MY CANCER-FIGHTING FACEBOOK PAGE - THEY ARE ONE IN THE SAME NOW AS I AM DOING BOTH. WHEN I FEEL LIKE A TRIP TO MCDONALDS I GO THERE AND POST AND THE GANG HELP ME THROUGH. ALSO POSTING THE FOOD I AM CRAVING WITH THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE WITH IT HELPS KEEP ME ON TRACK EVEN WHEN I WANT THAT BIG MAC AND FRIES.
  • Great article. Just what I needed to hear!

    When I look at myself, I would never describe me as a perfectionist. But I am guilty of giving up when it seems I'm not following my plan correctly. Perfectionism doesn't make me perfect. It makes me give up too easily, or not even try to do things that I fear I won't do well enough. I'm going to do the best I can each day without judging myself.

    Boy, did I need this article. I'm at 120 days into the program and I needed new motivation.
  • I really like this point of view. I'm a teacher and I think I will share this with other teachers because it can work to motivate students as well.
  • Needed this today
  • Thanks for this true inspirational blog....)

    This article is just what I needed. I've been with this program for 100 days now and made most of my major goals and started to slack off mentally. I needed this to re-invigorate myself.
  • I am doing okay. Keeping my motivation and keeping up with things. Enjoying all of this
  • I have just started Sparking - today is day 12. Right now I am using the food tracker and I am very motivated using it to revamp my eating and working on getting all my nutrients in my calorie allotment and not stressing on weight or exercise too much. I can say I can get aggravated or slacker but just tell myself just today. One day at a time, and just do it. Seems to get me over the hump.
  • Oops - I meant I have to keep myself from not redoing something if there is an error. I wanted to retype this comment- ha ha
  • I am learning to cut myself some slack. I am a perfectionist and I have to really force myself to re-do something if it isn't just so. This article hit home.
  • I find that when motivation wanes if I just commit to one day then by the end of the day I feel empowered and motivation returns in small ways, then builds to Full Steam Ahead!
  • Losing patience for the slow process often side-tracks me but I'm still motivated to eventually get back on track.
