You're welcome, Shawn. I thought I'd add another thing I find motivating. Reading the forum, surfing the net for weight loss tips and finding healthier foods to eat, these things are motivating to me as well. So the bottom line: reading as much as I can about good nutrition, realizing the things I'm doing wrong and how some minor changes can make big impacts. This motivates as well, big time.
I guess the reason would be is that all the knowledge is very empowering. And once you feel empowered the motivation really gets pumped up.
Stick around and feel free to ask more questions. I'm no expert, just got all my on the job training like everyone else here. But we've all got tricks up our sleeves that we'd be more than happy to share.
Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions
