So many little things motivate me....NOT shopping in Plus size stores, fitting in a seat on the bus, NOT having pain in knees and hips, reducing chances of get more fibroids, NOT always being the biggest girl in a social setting, be able to walk up not just one flight of stairs, but several and NOT get winded, be able to chase my bus so I won't be late for work, NOT having stomach issues (I'm sure it's stems from all the crap I used to eat), NOT having a steady boyfriend emoticon !!

These are just some of the things/issues I have with being obese....there are sooo many more things I WANT for me as a healthy normal weight range person, but I can't possibly list them all here. I'm sure we all share many of the NOT's and WANT's and that's what I am loving about SP!

My motivation is to feel good even where I am at today as I also keep my eye on the prize. I have been on and off way too many diets only to feel bad about myself when I fell off the wagon, or feel that I am not "good enough" until I reach my end goal.

Wooohooo! You should be so proud!! it's funny how we can see the bigger picture than a really great reason/excuse to make choices that are not in alignment with our goals. I did the same thing for my birthday and it felt really good.Better than I thought it would actually..
You can do this!!! and remember the importance of treating yourself gently, whether you decide to ease up on vacation or not :)

We all have such great motivators and I know that if we can keep these in the forefront of our minds that we will remember that is why we're doing this for ourselves and "do it" and then we'll not only look better but we'll feel so much better too.

Here's to us !!

Oh Great Spirit who dwells in the sky, lead us to the path of peace and understanding. Our lives are so short here, walking upon Mother Earth's surface. Let our eyes be opened to all the blessings you have given us. Please hear our prayers, oh Great Spirit.

My motivation is feel more energy. When I was at my highest weight, I never had any energy and was tired all the time. Now that I have lost some weight, I am feeling more energetic and doing more. My motivation is to not miss out on life anymore. I want to DO things, and be able to exercise, dance, swim, go to the beach, fly comfortably in coach, and do all the things my weight has kept me from doing.

My motivation is to be healthier the older I get. I have now lost 150 pounds. When I weighed 436 pounds I was diabetic. Losing weight got rid of the diabetes. Fortunately I have never had problems with high blood pressure and intend to keep it that way. And considering that RA runs in my family, it's very important that I lose weight. I have enough joint pain as it is.

My motivation today is to keep getting rid of this weight. To finally be rid of it. I don't want to carry around an extra 109 lbs for the rest of my life. Besides I already dropped 256 lbs so I know I'll feel even better getting the rest of this weight off ! I want to feel sexy again to look into my mirror and say wow ! Is that me ? Woo hoo ! It is me ! And be happy with that.

I hope that I am on the right track with changing the way I live my life and the way that I prove to no one but me that I AM WORTH IT!!!! Way to go!

Motivators

My motivation is reduced pain, increased endurance, ability to fit into clothes that were too small, ability to wear clothes that were too tight...baggy now, visions of wear single digit clothes, etc, etc, etc...

I need SP and you guys in my life daily. You guys keep me going. Yes my family is supportive but you guys are going through the same things that I am. You are all so supportive, inspirational, motivational, and just downright awesome.

Thanks everybody!!! emoticon

Hello everyone, hope that your Fridays are going well. I wanted to write in real quick, I have been having trouble with my internet connection today.

Today I decided I want to lose 5 more pounds before my dr app on the 26 of May. I tried to put on some of my summer clothes from last year and I looked liked a sauage stuffed in its casing. I have lost 5 pounds so this month and I am determined to lose 5 more by the 26th.

Look workouts here I come.

Rhonda- glad to hear about your capri, soon it maybe time for a shopping trip for you. Way to GO!

My motivation today is the fact that I can now fit in a pair of capris that I bought two months ago that were too small. Instead of returning them, I decided to keep them. Tried them on today and they fit. Yay!

Raven - Congrats on the loss! I hope I have a pleasant surprise next time I get on the scale too.

Donor - My kids will be out of school in a couple weeks. One of the reason I knew I had to get myself back into an exercise routine now is because I know it will be harder when we don't have the structure of school. I"m taking the summer semester off too so NO school this summer. Woo Hoo!

I love being in the pool. Since I have some medical issues I can't do much exercise on land so I'm very grateful to have access to a pool. Today I swam 50 laps!

My motivation today is my Vitamix. I love this blender. It's made it easy to make lots of yummy whole foods to eat and get all my fruits and veggies in. Today I made a hot soup in the blender for lunch from all whole foods. Amazing!

our pool is too small for laps but perfect for water jogging and water aerobics. It is also big enough to teach my little one a few strokes without the intimidation of other swimmers.

My motivation for today was that my water jogger belt and water barbells came today, I took them out of the box and hopped in the pool for an hour!! My 6 year old got a noodle and did it with me. Then we dove for her toys for another hour and a half. I love the water. It is hot here in Southern Florida.

RAVEN2FEATHERS- Thanks for the idea. My kids miss not having as much fresh stuff around the house also. And I worry about them not getting what they need. Do you have a Sam's club around you? Sometimes I can get fresh fruit and veg there real cheap.

I can't afford the veggies and fruits in the store so what I do is drink 2 cups of Motts Medleys juice, Grape, since it's my favorite and it gives me 2 servings of fruits and veggies for each cup ! When I calculated it all up I actually save money !

Oh Great Spirit who dwells in the sky, lead us to the path of peace and understanding. Our lives are so short here, walking upon Mother Earth's surface. Let our eyes be opened to all the blessings you have given us. Please hear our prayers, oh Great Spirit.

Good Afternoon everyone. My motivation for today is to eat more fresh fruit and veggies. It sure is hard with the price that everything is, can't wait till the farmers markets open up.

My motivation today is not having to make up excuses for not being able to do something (like walking or stairs) and instead inspire others to realize that they no longer have to live that way either.

My motivation today is that by next Mother's day I will feel thin enough to have my picture taken with my kids. This year I felt so terrible by the way I looked I didn't want my picture taken. Here is for looking to the future, a lighter me and not afraid of pictures.

My motivation today is reality. My husband took a picture of my son and I today and I didn't look anything like the person I see in my head.
