This thing called motivation - or "courage" or "desire" - insert your word here.

Monday morning and just for kicks I stepped on the scale to see what the full devastation of my week of vacation was. .4 more pounds to bring my grand total to 3.4 pound back from the universe due to my vacation indulgences. Ugh - it is depressing. But yesterday, the strangest thing happened. I ask for support on the "Huddle" Walls - and I got it. Folks I had never spoken to - and some that I had - sent me little bits of encouragement. Then, I went back and I tracked calories and stayed within my prescribed goal. I got back on the path and have stayed there, albeit for the last 36 hours.
It takes the courage to get back on the horse and face your fears of falling of again. I admire all of you that have done it - or will do it in the future. I have the desire to succeed, and the courage to face my failures. Motivation is there - but it is nice to know that if you need to - you can borrow someone else's motivation for a moment, or an hour, or a day. Thanks fellow Sparkers! Here is to everyone achieving their goals!
