I have tried so many times to stay on a Fitness Plan, but it wasn't until I set a definite goal (5K run and Relay) and gathered some dependable partners that my plan actually stuck. Dependable partners are going to stay dedicated. You can pick each other up on "off" days. Goals- choosing, signing up, and paying my race fees was HUGE! Once I was paid up, I knew I had to stick to it. Usually, you'll get training schedules to go along with events which keep you motivated and training wisely.

Setting and reaching CONCRETE goals is the most motivating for me in my fitness and weight loss journey. Since I have a concrete date to run my first 5k, and a concrete path to get there using couch to 5k programs, it has been a HUGE motivation boost now that I have been on the path to reaching my goals the past few weeks. Plus exercise you KNOW you've done it or not, weight loss is sometimes a crap-shoot certain times with plateaus and such. 386
