I wish that Spark had a way to bookmark things on their page that you find particularly helpful. I'd like to mark this so I can read it regularly, but I can only bookmark it on my browser.

Things I never gave much thought to before...was too busy beating myself up, over "slipping up". One more reason I think SP is an answer to prayer. I read this just in the nick of time...as I was about to give up and over indulge.

Thank you! Saved by the bell...I mean article!

I really appreciated this article! It helped me to put things in perspective, and take a more balanced view of those times when I do not meet my own expectations! Obviously my expectations may not be so much the culprit as those hidden backsliding behaviors.

I hope I can remain as motivated as I am right now through the entire year. I should say to myself each day: yes I can!!!

Personally, I often look at my family (1 individual) being a mood killing.
It seems that when I try to grow or attempting to change the "normal", I have received the untrue reasons that now is not the time.
Starting today, I will be the individual that I have been created to be!!

I wish this was the case for me. My motivation has been drastically declining the past couple weeks. I'm pretty sure that I know the reason - I've lost a lot of weight and I feel good about where I am. Although, I still have 5-7 pounds to lose to get to my goal, I've let myself by happy where I am (which, I know, is a good thing), but it's also giving me reasons to ignore everything I've learned and worked hard for. I need someone to kick my butt in gear!

This really hit home! I've been reading alot about loving yourself and forgiving yourself. This just goes hand in hand! I would recommend this article to any/everyone. It should be read and reread!
