Need a motivator

Motivation is like the tide. It comes and goes. Sometimes its faster or slower, but it always seems to ebb and flow. What I'm looking for is a way to keep myself motivated despite how I feel, busyness, laziness...life. I've been there before. Back in '03 I lost over 50 lbs before our big vacation to Antigua. I need to find that kind of motivation/inspiration again. I'm feeling an up-swing today and want to keep it going. Any great ideas???

December 9th, 2007, I crossed the finish line of the Dallas White Rock Marathon. When I started training in August I never felt more motivation in my life to tackle something way bigger than ME. Find a 10-K, a bike race, something that gives you a deadline and goal. That's a motivator!

When I first started at the gym, I didn't have any motivation, other than I just wanted to kind of get in shape. Then I went jeans shopping and ended up buying a pair 1 size smaller than usual. That was a great feeling, and I've since dropped another size. So, my advice, buy a pair of jeans that's a size too small and resolve to wear them.

Motivation.....a 4 letter word in intensity....carries strength, conviction, you love it when you have it, hate it when it's gone....
