I am so glad I read this article. It has motivated me to move. Report
I think this article is great and what i needed today! Report
Great article. I am motivated like never before as I am turning 40 this year. I want to be fit and healthy for these years of my life. A little motivation goes a long way. Report
I didn't feel that there was as much emphasis on forgiving one's failures its too easy to get hung up on failure rather than concentrating on LONG TERM goals. Report
This was a great article for me. I'm an all-or-nothing kind of person, so when I have a bad day, I really have a bad day...
But I have come to realize that even though I did eat out, or have that piece of cheesecake, its not as bad as I think it is, it never is. There are ways to compensate and refocus... rather than throwing in the towel and having another piece of cake. Report
Coach Nichole, I want you to know that this article is very much appreciated. I had been on a plateau prior to Dec. Did well on Thanksgiving but then we had a Birthday & Christmas when our Grandson flew in on the 8th of Dec. Just for 1 day. Then I joined so many others- eating out & for the first time, I lost my will power. I put 2 lbs on at a time that I wasn't allowed to exercise so now, Back in the pool tomorrow & I will work hard & hope to see a difference next week. My big downfall is Pumpkin Pie at anytime. Now to re-read those 25 steps & get myself back on track. Thank You. Report
Extremely motivating. Even though I allowed myself a milkshake, 2 fried pickle spears, AND half a personal pizza today, I also did 2 hours of horseback riding (painful! it was a draft horse and I'm a small girl) and ate healthfully otherwise. I'll likely end up doing a few strength exercises before bed, too...
I'm beginning to realize that food isn't my reward, but it also isn't the enemy. Baby steps. :) Report
Definately what I needed to read. I let myself get a little indulgent over the holiday and it is so easy to begin to slip back into old ways.
I have my enthusiasm back and I am going to stay the line. Report

This is just what I needed to hear. I need to start with a a clean slate and forget about all the junk I've consumed and replace all of it with healthy food. Thanks! Report
Thanks for this article. I really needed the motivation to get back on track. Report

Thanks for this article! I went off track this weekend, (no excuses, but this time of year does have the best tasting food!) Today I came back with a vengeance - I walked, and even ran a little, and avoided leftovers and take out. But I really needed something to help with my motivation (besides guilt), and this article really did the trick.

I hope everyone who read this article got the same enthusiasm to get back in line (or stay in line) the way I did. Thanks again! Report

I often "blow it" when trying to eat healthily or exercise and then decide to start the next day or (usually) next week instead of now. I think the suggestion of taking two small steps forward is a great one and I plan to try it out next time instead of procrastinating my life and health away. Report
