How do you stay motivated and find inspiration to stick with your program?
This is the most basic idea in the world, but it's taken me 30 years to figure it out myself. Try new foods. Try new workouts. Try new teams. Find out what makes you happy (health wise)and will stick with. Keep trying to find answers and you will be rewarded for your efforts.
No Matter what happens in life, don't stop trying. Even if you have to take a break that's ok, just be sure to get back on track ASAP.
When I get down on myself I remember this verse, and know I'm never alone. For me truly understanding there isn't anything I can't accomplish helps me. For a long time I didn't truly know this, but now that I do... watch out.
Today I chose a photograph for my desktop background to serve as an additional kick in my rear end. I chose a photo of a swimsuit model for fun. You could use any photo of your choosing that will help motivate you...
I haven't kept up with my cleaning and workouts, so I found a way to get started. To me it's all about getting started after that its smooth sailing. I start my day with walking first thing in the morning.
Getting healthy is almost as much mental as it is physical, at least for me. Staying focused upon the task at hand with visual reminders is a real help for me in staying the course.

My husband and I started running this year. We began with 5Ks and are workig our way up to longer runs. We've never been running like that before but signing up for a monthly race helped us stay motivated to keep training and you get rewarded with a goody bag, shirts and crossing the finish line...
Whenever I backslide, goof up, or just generally fail, instead of saying "I Quit" I stop and forgive myself. Then I remember why I started this in the first place, and continue where I left off. We can forgive others, right? Why not ourselves.
I've set a goal for myself, I am going to bike ride ride at least 20 miles on a trail this summer. I am not confined by weather if it rains I go the next day, for trying to keep up with other people or spending money.
