I'd like to welcome and thank everyone who has stopped by and signed up for the 2013 Diet Progress Program. Don't worry if you've arrived late - you can join at any time during the year.
The upcoming Monthly Diet Progress pages will be a place for everyone to come by and keep track of their diet and exercise progress for the year. Got a tip that might be helpful for someone else? Post it. Have a story to share? Share it. Have a question? Ask it. Please feel free to offer encouragement to others on the page.
I've noticed a recurring theme - lack of motivation or how to keep your motivation. Everyone has their own reason for losing weight or getting fit. Some days are going to be harder than others. Those are the days when you need to reach down inside and find something to get you through. My motivation was this: You have to find a very strong reason to want to lose weight and be able to think about that reason every time you want to give in and eat unhealthy food. I could never stick to a diet because i didn't have a strong reason to lose the weight. The only reason i was finally successful was because i found myself to be very unhappy being overweight and i wanted a girlfriend and a family in the future. This excerpt was taken from my post here..
So, what's YOUR motivation?
