    This is what works for me: I like to have long term goals and short term goals, sometimes your long term goals can be overwhelming (that's why sometimes we fail over and over at losing weight) so when I first started spark I had a really hard time losing weight and almost wanted to give up BUT I said no if I just focus on losing 5lbs at a time that is pretty attainable. Next thing you know you are 20lbs down. I still have about another 10lbs to go and the last 10 are the hardest.

    I gained about a 1lbs since the holiday and I had been having trouble getting back to the gym but i started again this past week so i thought it was funny i did very well during the holidays but afterwards was not the case. I have a calendar that I put stickers every time I go to the gym and it really helps me and encourages me to go to the gym and have a whole month full of stickers. I am all about short terms goals to keep going so I focus on one day at time or one week at a time so that's how i got back into going to the gym and getting my diet sotta back on track, this week I feel like i did okay but now that i am back full force i only get better with time.

    I hope that helps emoticon

    It feels great to see that changes! I once I get to goal I want to take a similar picture so I can show the before and after.

    BTW if there is anything I can do to help you let me know! You can do this!
