My motivation is a healthy body I strive to have my body as healthy as possible ... walking is my favorite exercise when I watch my Patriots play I do jumping jacks for each point and 10 extra for a win . It is also good to do some weight lifting building muscles can help keep you at a healthy weight . Yoga is also good to do for flexability Hugs Judy

Hi elmac, welcome to our community. Losing weight is approximately 1% decision and 99% willpower, lol. You gotta make yourself do the things that are going to help you for approximately 36 days straight. Every day. No excuses. Then you know what? It becomes a HABIT. Mental habits take somewhere between 20 and 42 days to come to fruition. Once they do, then you won't have to make yourself do it anymore. It'll bother you if you Don't do it. 36 days.... not so much when you think about it. Right?
Ok. Here's our community link to some free downloadable exercises that some of us have found , tried and liked enough to share.
There are also some fantastic tips and recipes on our community "Resources" link found at left of page. Sign onto the 50-100 lb community and just clik and scroll through our discussions there. (you have to click on our resources though, as different communities have their own)
For me, it's actually mostly a financial matter. I am nearing the end of my job training, and in Germany, there are basically two different "levels" in this particular area. If I want to get into the higher level (which would equal around 500"0AC extra each and every month), I have to be a normal weight.
That is quite some motivation...
Other than that, I try to do as many different things as possible. I go swimming, play squash, cycle, do Pilates and yoga... I lose my motivation once it gets boring.
