    This is for those of us who need motivation. We all fall into this category at some point. Whether "just trying to get into shape", or competitive athelete, we all wonder is it worth it? The price is high, but the rewards are even higher! We have to come to grips with one thing,our biggest and hardest competition throughout life comes from within ourselves. Why are we doing this? Where are the results? Why not jusst take it easy and be a couch potato like everyone else? These are competitions we must face sometimes on an almost daily basis. That strength to fight has to come from within you. And, when that isn't enough, a place like this board has tremendous value. You have a community of people here always willing to help. Even sometimes our "best friend" can be a battle. We all have that "friend" who tempts with that piece of cake, "one piece won't kill you". Well, probably not. But will it lead to another? Will we think, well, I ate one the other day, another one today won't hurt me. By all means indulge somewhat, if you can handle it. If not, then know your limitations. These are competitions we must face. The strength must come from within ourselves. Keep the competitive juices flowing. This is how we better ourslves. Strive for more. If we give in and quit, one day it will come back to haunt. We will say, if only we hadn't quit back then, where would we be now? Don't let this happen to you. Be strong. Win that inner competition. You will be all the better for it, in health and appearance. Good luck to all of you, and yours in health!

    Good post so true. We have at work a birthday a week it seems, plus they have a "bagel" day. If I ate that every time we had that...LOL well lets say that it would not be good. But I get strange looks, cause I have toleave the room, if I donot I eat. I choose not to eat it but when I get back to my desk I have like 3 slices on my desk, cause you know the big guy likes his cake...anyway they just do not understand the struggle I go thru each day, to control this hunger I have. But it is like BB1 says with this site I have been able to do a lot better. Thanks guys!

    Great words bb1fit! You have such good advice and encouragement. I wanted to tell you that it finally sunk in that what you eat is the telltale of your progress. I wonder how much longer it would have taken me to get that message if you did not instill that in so many posts. My best wishes to you in all that you do! Thanks!

    Thanks for the motivation. I know that I can be my greatest foe or my greatest ally.
    It really can be a battle sometimes. Which makes the victories so much sweeter.
    I am in it to win the battle but to win the war!
    OK enough sailor talk. :) Hey at least I do not have the potty mouth on here. hehehehe :)

    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

    Great words of advice, from yet another great person via this site. Wouldn't it just be waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too cool if someday we all met at a freetrainers seminar get together! Meet the faces behind the words! Just a passing thought of some really cool people/actually friends/family we all have come to know thru...this message board system.
    :o)

    awww fudge. I meant I am in it not to just win the battle but to win the war as well.
    Can we say brain fart. :o)
