Most people that read these messages will benefit and to those of you who have succedded my hat is off to you.Keep up the good work Spark People .
Yes! Don't think about the wall, don't stop and look at the hard stuff--just do, just go, focusing on what comes ahead. I also use the "just this much more" technique--sometimes even when I'm doing housework--and then it's done!!

There's no marathon for me but I'm at that wall in and have been for a whil, but I find myself between a rock and a hard place.. can't go back and can't seem to master myself to go forward and so much depends on me keeping on. It's too easy to look at the negatives-- too much weight, too little effort to exercise, recovering from breast cancer surgery, raising 2 as a single parent....once I felt like Wonder Woman.. now I wonder: woman, can you keep on. I'd like to pull up the covers.. but someone has to do the pay the bills...so, l roll out of bed hoping today is the day that I see the light at the end.
thanks- as a runner as well- I totally understand and endorse everything you said- it is so applicable to every aspect of fitness, weight loss and life in general- Valuable life skills to be learned here.

This is a keeper. I don't need it today, but there will come a time when I'm going to need to read this again more than ever. Pam
I'm not huge on exercise, but I do it cause I need to. When I get tired and just do NOT want to do any more I say, I can quit whenever I want to ... as long as I keep walking (or biking or whatever)! LOL It's silly but physiologically it works for me :D
