  • NOW THIS IS A GREAT ARTICLE. IT'S REALISTIC AND POINTS OUT POTENTIAL ROADBLOCKS AND THEN OFFERS SUGGESTIONS. STILL IT IS REALLY UNLIKELY THAT YOUR WORK ENVIRONMENT IS GOING TO CARE ... UNLESS YOU WORK ON A CAMPUS THAT OFFERS A FITNESS FACILITY. I'VE BEEN LUCKY WITH THAT MOST OF MY CAREER - NOT ONLY DID THEY HAVE IT, THEY GAVE YOU TIME TO USE IT AS PART OF THE WORK DAY - PROOF, YOUR ID WAS NEEDED TO SWIPE IN.
  • It seems so obvious, but this is exactly what I have been doing wrong. I can't believe I haven't spotted it before. Thanks for this article.
  • Great article. I saved it.

    I have such trouble staying motivated. This article gave me some inspiration for a while at least.
  • good mantra for me - commit and don't quit.
  • I like the "Commit.... and Don't Quit" part. That has been my problem in the past. I gain, then lose and after I lose quit. I don't know why. Even the last major time I lost weight I had gotten 9 pounds away from my ultimate goal. Then I started working 2nd shift, eating crappy and stopped working out. Well I gained most of it back. But NOW.... I need to keep this in mind and make it my new mantra.... COMMIT, DON'T QUIT!!!!! Thanks!! ;o)
  • Glad to hear from you TaxiKent from Galveston. Glad you picked up the book from a garage sale. Hope it gives you back more than you paid for it.
  • Great timing. I have had some obstacles in my paths lately, and I have also found my motivation slipping a little. Thanks!
  • This article is a really good one. I tend to be to hard on myself anytime I mess up on my diet or exercise, which leads to disappointment and discouragement. This article helped me realize it happens to the best of us! Very encouraging to not give up and keep doing your best. Thanks!

    Hi Taxikent.
    I live in Friendswood.
    How are you
  • Hi, I'm new and would like to correspond with anyone still living in order to keep me motivated. I'm new to spark. Found the book in a garage sale, no less.
    I'm taxikent in Galveston, TX. I haven't explored this site yet, but will.
  • Writing goals consistently, and marking progress are a good practice. I do not do this as I should although I track, I never really mark progress. I will try this and hope to become more aware and proud of the steps I have taken,.
  • My goals entail both losing 40lbs AND having the endurance to run a 5k! Im terrible at running, and would like to improve.

    It's easy for life to get in my way. Between work and school, I remain fairly busy. However, I do my best to get in my workouts, and avoid the unhealthy foods on campus and in my workplace.

    So inspired by your comments, everyone - congrats on all your hard work! I'm glad you enjoyed the article. Behavior change does take time, but planning, breaking down barriers and reinforcing small gains will help you stay ahead of the curve! Best of luck in your continued success.

    Cheers,
    Coach Meg
