My motivation isn't as great as it was when I got started, but I know it will return. Just know that it will come back strong, especially when you start getting more results!!!

I am "chubby" and I have a bad knee and back. I can think of ANY excuse IN THE WORLD to snack and not work out.

My motivation started about a month ago with a very in-shape strength trainer said, "You are doing great. If you like how you look, just keep eating what you are eating." I do NOT like how I look, so I have taken snacking to a different level (much less and less often) and just paid for 10 more strength training classes.

It is my eating, not classes, that will help me! Just

Hey there, Gigiromans - that is a great article she suggested and I have it saved. We all need reminders to keep our commitment to health. Have you joined a Team? Teams help make motivation fun and increase your involvement in the Community - there is some data indicating this is very helpful in weight loss! Blogging is great, too - writing your own and reading those of others, especially those who have faced big challenges and are succeeding. Very inspiring and motivating. I also have joined a couple Challenges to get rolling on changes in my program. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off - do NOT indulge in beating yourself up - and start again. I have been there many times! Keep posting about this as many of us have weathered tough times!
