Motivation to me is earmning my points every day, plus seeing my clothes fit better, and being able to wear some that I really liked but had to pack away.

my motivation is my 10 year HS reunion in august...plus I just want to FEEL better, which I have the past 5 weeks or so that I have been exercising.
I also bought a full swimsuit with a skirt (right before the contest), that I would LOVE to return for a cuter bikini. emoticon

My motivation is my self esteem and self image. I was at the point where I was disgusted to see myself without clothes. Now I am starting to have a more favorable opinion of my physical self. I am not feeling like a frump!

It is always great if you can find that motivation. I am still looking for my main motivation focal point. A few years ago, I went to California for work for 6 months. I got the goal to be in shape, and my motivation at the time was to come home to Washington state, and have my friends mistake me for some stranger. Man I looked good at the end of that. I tanned, toned and had my hair done and everything. And wouldn't you know it, they pulled up to the airport and nearly passed me by. They had looked right at me, then looked on because I couldn't have possibly be the friend that left them 6 months prior. Smiling like a criminal who just escaped with mad loot, I waved frantically so they would stop.

Now things are different and I have a son. It is hard for me to find motivation to look good in a swimsuit, because now I have stretch marks all over my stomach. I always favored the bikini... Oh well! My son is more important than some stupid stretch marks anyway. IDK... I hope to start dating again eventually. That should be my motivation, but frankly right now I don't really care about all that.

ohhh that is so great :) I also bought a bathing suit when I started this challenge, because when I got my picture taken in my one from last year (which I had bought cause I had went from 179 to 150 last sumer) it looked bad on me (and I weighed 150, but must have been toner lol) so now when this is over I will have my picture taken in a smaller size suit, hopefully I dont break the camera HAHA and hopefully the suit fits ok.
everyones doing so great, our healthy lifestyle change will do us a world of good :)

Way to go! I was also able to get into a pair of capris that I wasn't able to wear last year. I also have the motivation of having family pictures taken next month (only about 4 weeks).
I had a bad eating day yesterday, but I did well the rest of the weekend. I will finish out this challenge strong! I will also probably keep going with it until we have our pictures taken.
Keep it up!

Amazing isn't it? I think I missed the window of opportunity on a few things. They were too small, but now they're too big! I measured at the beginning of this challenge, and I remeasured (partly... didn't do thighs or biceps or neck yet) Saturday and I have lost 1" in my bust, my waist and my hips. 1" exactly all the way around! In what, three weeks? Woohoo!!

That's great motavation. Everyone needs some kind of goal. I tried on a dress I haven't worn in many many years. It was always tight in the chest and I couldn't breath in it!!! Well it fit yesterday-I mean FIT!! It is no longer tight and I can breath in it!!! I was so happy!!! It feels so good to fit into your old clothes-and ones that you never fit in before. I tried to see what size it was but it wasn't on there. I believe it was a 14 dress but I'm not sure. Anyway best of luck to you-KEEP IT UP, YOU'RE DOING GREAT!!!!

Good Idea. I did the same thing. And after I lost 10 pounds, I started trying it on every week or two, jsut to see how much closer I was getting. Only a few more pounds to go and I think I will be ready to wear it. If only the weather would cooperate!! It turned cold again. The puddle in the driveway was icy on the edge! But really, swimsuit season doesn't start until end of June or first of July here.

I went to the beach yesterday and I wouldn't put on a bathing suit so I went in shorts and a t-shirt. All the girls were there in bikinis. It inspired me to work harder after seeing others looking great because I know that is what I want for myself. So hopefully by Labor day, I will be able to put a bikini on. I am going to buy one and hang it up in my bedroom to remind me of my goal on a daily basis.
