I am motivated to keep cleaning out my living room as it got took over by crafts. As I am doing this I located by little weight set and other pieces of equipment. I want to use them doing my chair exercises. My legs currently are big and painful due to severe edema so taking Lasix on my day off from the world ... to bring them down so that they will not hurt. I am not able to do this 3 days a week like they want me to because we are gone almost everyday..

I am at my heaviest weight and I just can't keep going up. I refuse to buy bigger clothes; I'm tired of feeling more exhausted because of my weight; I'm not happy with the person looking back in the mirror. These are the things motivating me for change.

my daughter RUBECCAL motivates me she is so upbeat and always on the go. She is feeling badly right now because she would like to be doing better and hopes to be able to go to Disneyland in 2020.. if any one can stop by her page and give some encouragement to her I would really appreciate. I know we are all struggling. She gives so much of herself to everyone in the house by helping them despite her on severe back pain from having Spina Bifida that she deserves more recognition than she gets. :Thank you in advance above is her Spark name her real name is Melissa

I haven't walked long distances in many many years due to my back being in so much pain and it always gets worse the more I walk.. well what motivates me is that on Saturday the 11th of March 2017 I walked 1.23 miles in about 2 hours and 45 minutes but that time includes some looking exhibit and shopping a little bit. I was just irritated with the trax system and didn't want to wait the 30 minutes for the next trax line so we walked to the museum and library and back to the orginial trax line to ride the one that got us to the other line that we didn't ride and back to the van, It was awesome and I am proud of myself so THIS is what motivates me now...

I'm getting the foot surgery I so badly need and that is keeping me motivated right now to eat healthy and try losing without the exercise -- which I have been managing to do!

My daily dose of SP keeps me motivated! I read many blogs as part of a particular team and that keeps me going when I want to stop the bus and get off!

People keep me motivated the very most. I feel like if they see me make my journey, they will know it's possible to make theirs. So when I want to overeat, I think of them, the ones I would let down, who might believe that since I failed it can't be done.

Spark People keeps me motivated. Every morning after I get out of bed, get ready for the day and have my coffee I open my computer and click on spark. This has been my morning routine for the last eight years. I start with my nutrition because once I get that figured out I feel like I can carry on with my day. The nutrition tracker really helps to keep me on track and I guess I would say motivated. I am not saying I am perfect far from it. Some days I run into things that come between me and my nutrition tracker but if I screw off and eat something I shouldn't or think I shouldn't I fit it into my tracker even if it means taking something off. Another thing that is beneficial to me is my sister. We have been on this journey from the beginning which has been a big help to me and to her. Our support for each other is big and although she lives here she is not always here. She travels and even when she is not here I find myself sticking to my journey and the same can be said for her. I hope everyone who reads this will find the motivation that I have.

I'm finding it a bit hard to get my motivation back so I read blogs and look at the stories of people who have done this and are succeeding so very well despite many physical and mental hurdles! That is what is helping me to find that motivation again!

People like you share your journey and I just won't give up! Kept 50 lbs off for 5 years, now about 17 have crept back and I hate that my clothes are getting tighter. I also think metabolism is harder to regulate at my age. (I started SP almost 9 years ago.)

Seeing the difference in the mirror, and yes, those diminishing numbers on the scale, as well as those clothes labels with smaller sizes. Oh, and being able to exercise more easily and having just so-o-o much more stamina and energy...

I wasn't that motivated for myself. As people told me I inspired them, I felt like I couldn't let them down- I had to prove they could do it too.
