  • Doing the 21 day challenge a second time because it worked so well the first. Unlike some of our challenges this one is totally real for all levels of fitness and health. Thank you, Dean
  • Fantastic article....really needed the many positive reminders found within. Thank you, Coach Dean!
  • I really needed this article today! I showed no weight loss this week, however, I received two compliments asking me if I lost weight! I will focus on those compliments and move forward!!
  • Good article - important to remember we have to try to be self-motivated, it's not easy - easier to get derailed. I certainly know that. Happy Monday and have a great day.
  • This article is exactly the motivation I needed, I missed two walking days because of weather and I was feeling guilty, today I will pick myself up and get back to it.

  • This came up today when I needed it most. Yesterday was one of those days that I simply needed a real day of rest and rather than struggle with the idea of missing my walk with Daisy after consistently walking for 59 days I took the day I needed. I was feeling a little guilty about that this morning so your words about no one being perfect really spoke to me. Thanks!
  • This is a great article. Motivation is the hardest thing in weight loss.
  • I am motivated by my newfound knowledge of tracking my nutritional and fitness goals. The Spark program's meal plans and fitness videos have helped me so much. I have a better sense of healthy eating habits and balancing my diet. I look forward to picking out my workouts everyday and I go to bed sleeping much more soundly. I've lost some weight and feel so good about where I'm at in my life. I have made a healthier lifestyle change and also enjoy communicating with others doing the same thing. Thank you, Spark and fellow members.
  • I swear I could read this same type of article on an anorexic website/society/clique with the same fervor from fellow "dieters". I just don't know anymore. Is this what we have to do? There is something wrong in this "must lose weight, must look a certain way" ideology. Anorexia is a mental disease. Why isn't obesity?
  • Thank you. This was just what I needed to read right now.
  • Wonderful article I stopped my workouts when the scale didn't change,i was looking for motivation in the wrong place but now am back.
