Congrats on your 40 pounds!!! That's awesome! yes...I think most people would RATHER sit on the couch and watch TV than workout, but you need to move your body. Have you read The Spark book yet...it all starts with 10 minutes!!!!! Just commit to a 10 minute walk everyday. If you get out there and you wanna keep going, great! If not, you at least set a goal and reached it. I guess the other question I would ask is WHY is losing another 23 lbs important to you? If it's not important enough to create a fire within you to do what it takes, it will never happen! Reward yourself with TV! I love TV...but I either record my programs and watch them AFTER my workouts...or I create games to do while I watch them. Like every commercial I have to do 10 squats and crunches...or everytime the people say some certain word I give that an exercise...etc.
IF IT MATTERS TO YOU AND YOU ARE COMMITTED, THERE WILL NOT BE ANY EXCUSES...trust me on this! It's when you are merely interested in losing weight that you will accept any and every excuse you give yourself! NO EXCUSES girlfriend! It sucks but it's worth it! Have a great Xmas and a fab 2013!

WELCOME TO SPARK!!! Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family! *~ Paula *~

Hi my name is Rachel and ive been on a diet since January 2012. So far ive lost 40 pounds. Right now im caught in a rut and cant get the last 23 pounds off. Ive tried different things. Im always changing up my diet. I really need to just get out and exercise but I have no motivation to do that. Im so lazy. Id rather just sit around and watch tv or sleep. I work night shift so I think that has alot to do with why im so lazy. Anyone from Houston that would like a workout buddy?
