Yo-Yo dieting
"I can do this this time!"
"One day of no exercise is okay."
"Oh, that pie looks yummy."
"One day turns into two days."
"That's okay, tomorrow."
"I can do this this time!"

That's been my cycle since I can remember. But it's changed now. (seriously.)
I'm finding ways to keep my motivated. Instagram has been my main motivator. Pinterest has been pretty good, too, even though I don't have an account. My family and friends have been an incredible support. People that I haven't talked to in years but have on facebook seem encouraged by me. So the motivation hasn't declined.
I lost 40 pounds simply by changing the way I eat. I don't deny a craving but I don't mix up craving with boredom. I work out every day (with the occasional break) because I'm scared that if I rest for one day, it'll turn into two. Like it always has.
I got on Hip Hop Abs, fell in love with Shaun T, and lost about 8-10 inches here and there.
Then, I realized that I no longer feel gross when I'm taking pictures. I get excited to take pictures! So I put together a before and after and went WOW...
I'm my own motivation.
But I stopped losing pounds and inches. I worked out everyday, and I felt more energized, but my body wasn't losing anything.
So I ordered Insanity and that's where I'm at. It's kicks my butt, but I feel myself kicking fat's butt!

I've just celebrated my SP eleven month anniversary and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received for weight loss and so much more. This is a fabulous site and you will be astounded at what you get out of it if you give it your all.

    To celebrate your arrival at SP in this late-summer season, I would like to wish you a everlasting renewal of energy and passion, for this is a time to celebrate the great potential you possess. May the sun shine upon you and fire up your heart to reach all of your goals and find joy in yourself and the world around you. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may you find energy, confidence, vitality and strength. This is the time to shine bright and show the world how beautiful you are. Embrace the summer-lit brilliance of each day and you will create a new life where all your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle
