My main motivation was the fact that I kept losing 1-2 lbs per week most of the last year. Now that that has slowed down, my main motivation is my husband. He's very faithful about going to the rec. center, even when I don't (I was going everyday, now I've had weeks where I went every other day as it seems like things keep popping up). We usually go together when we go, and that really helps!

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference!

I found returning from two weeks of vacation very motivating. It makes me think that I should travel more!

Great topic. I am motivated by the energy level I now enjoy and the soundness of mind. Today is a gift and I want to enjoy it all!! My kids were raised on a very healthy diet, low sugar and salt and at ages 31 and 28 maintain healthy eating and exercising habits. It does work. Good for you for watching the young ones.

Thank you so much. I don't completely keep sweets away, for fear that they will binge on junk food when I am not around. But overall they eat very well. And since being on SparkPeople, I have greatly reduced the amount of food I give them for a quick dinner, like mac n' cheese and hot dogs. And I have started buying the ones with lower fat. They are very impressionable right now, so I want to give them a good footing into their teenage and adult years. emoticon

Hi, Nadaylne. I used to teach school years ago, and I very distinctly remember one little girl who had been raised without sweets... when it came valentines, she brought fruit to class, and actually did not like or want the sugary junk!

keep it up, teaching your children the healthy way to eat is going to be a wonderful blessing to them in their later years.

I want to be a good role model for my children. I want them to want the apple or banana instead of a cookie. And some days they actually do. emoticon

That is the attitude which will get us where we want to go. How can we not reach our goals, if we continue to eat heathier foods, stay within our calorie range and get more active!

From one turtle to another... keep pluggin' away.... remember the Turtle wins the race through consistency and persistence. The hare made a mad dash and quit before the finish line.

I am in this for the rest of my life. Although I am older, and the weight will come off slower, so what?! I am learning to like this way of eating, and feeling so good about myself for doing the exercise... This is definitely a winning lifestyle!

My motivation for staying on track today, is knowing I'll feel and look better tomorrow. Whether I lose 3 # a month or no # at all, I know that I'm striving for a healthier and stronger tomorrow...

My motivation is knowing that I can do it. I have already lost 9 lbs and I know if I stick with it and continue to make good choices I will keep losing weight and be HEALTHIER. At the end of the day, whether it has been a good day or a bad day, I know that tomorrow hasn't been touched and I still have a chance to do better, to lose that one pound, to eat veggies and fruit instead of fast food and to work out for 10 extra minutes!

De Colores!

I am HOT TO TROT and too hard to handle baby!

WE all have a shot
TO be hot to trot!

Without any doubt
We won't even pout!

We're gonna lose a LOT
WE ARE HOT TO TROT!!

Being a woman does not make me a better Christian. But, being a Christian does make me a better woman. ~ Elisabeth Elliot

what's your motivation for staying on track today? right now? for this meal or the next meal? to by-pass the high calorie food with little or no nutrition, and instead to choose food that's tasty AND full of GOOD nutrition?
