      If you need motivation, and a support group to check in with you and make sure you're meeting your goals, or if you just want to join for fun, we set up a blog for us workout gals that needed a little push.

      It's pretty theraputic to admit to meeting a goal or missing one...and there's great advice too.

      Here's the thread with the info:

      And our blog is:

      Workoutgals Weblog

      There's also this thread, that people really enjoy:

        Woo-Woo! I can't wait until I see "1 month" on my wedding ticker!

        And if I could, I'd pass some of these brownies through the computer screen so I could have someone guilty alongside of me.

        *sigh* To the gym we go.

          Brooke, I am right there with you. I have so much weight to lose to be at my goal weight, yet I ate a chocolate bar today. I am not sure why, but I am having the hardest time ever motivating myself to eat right, yet you would think it would be the biggest motivator. Its hard, I have no idea what to do next.

          Sorry, I am sure that did not help you at all. lol

              Julie I know I said this the other day, but I'm right there with you. I feel so unmotivated at work right now, so I don't think that helps either

                Me tooo! I am not liking my job and I am so bored while I am there, and that does not help at all.

                  As I sit here staring at an unopened can of REGULAR Mountain Dew (I haven't had a regular soda in I can't even tell you how long!), I understand the lack of motivation problem. I think I'm going to have to join the work-out forums and get a buddy in order to do this.

                    The hardest part is just getting started but once you work out once..then twice.. and start to feel a difference it gets much easier to stay on track.

                      Sorry Gen, I will always say Gen now. You know next time it will be Brooke though right. lol

                      Don't do it!!!! Step away from the soda.
