So the wedding is done and now I’m a Mrs. I am so happy with the progress I made for my wedding and very happy with the outcome. Now, I’m having trouble finding the motivation to keep going. This is my third go around with Spark People and I feel like I have a great basis for success. I just need to put it into action. Nothing is as motivating as a wedding, and I’m succumbing to daily temptations now more than ever. I've have broken almost all the bad habits I created for myself over the years and hopefully it will stay that way for the rest of my life. I'm still making life changes but I'm proud of my accomplishments thus far and can't wait to live my life and feel happy instead of things happening around me! I feel like I motivate others with weight loss, but have a hard time motivating myself and taking my own advice. Now is the test of how strong I am.

My Goals:
In addition to being healthy, I want to change the living style of my household. I'd like to be happy with myself on a daily basis. I'd like to stop emotional eating as well. I also want to run a real 5K. I want a number strapped to my stomach and run the whole thing.

My Program:
I'm beginning my half marathon training in hopes to complete the Chicago 2012 half marathon in October. I also am attempting to strength train 2-3 times per week.

Personal Information:
Just moved to the Milwaukee area after living in Chicago for the first 25 years of my life. It's a welcome change and I'm getting used to my surroundings.

Other Information:
I love tv...I can get addicted to anything and everything very easily.

    Self Motivation is the hardest thing in the world! But I found something on here the other day that has helped me: Treat/talk to yourself the way you would a friend. If someone else was having a hard day, What would you say to them? You would tell them they are amazing and that they can do anything they set their mind to do, and offer to go work out with them or something along those lines... Treat yourself with the same respect. The site said to actually write these things down on piece of paper and post it somewhere where you will see it a lot. You can be your own best Motivator... It is a habit that you have to cultivate, but it can be done... the WORST thing you can do is beat yourself up over little mistakes or imperfection... SO what! Put things into perspective. And always remember: You define yourself... What you say you are is who you are... If you say you are strong, than you will be, but if you say you are struggling, and failing, guess what? you are probably right... Hope this helps. I could use a friend to help me motivate myself as well. If you are interested, add me as your friend. :)
