New here, helloooo

Hello everyone,
I decided to join peertrainer because I needed new motivation! I had lost 15lbs and then slowly became more lenient. I gained back 3 lbs and decided I couldn't go back down that road again! NOT ME! lol Well I have been good and lost 5 lbs. So officially i lost 17 lbs, went from 172 to 155. I am only 5ft so I know I need to lose alot more! So what keeps everyone else motivated? I found that I just no longer to desire to be overweight and unhealthy. I prefer my strength, stamina, energy, etc...and today I found out I fit into a dress that wouldn't sip up before :-D

Welcome to PT. Try to get into an active group. That helps me out a lot!! Also, I just booked a beach vacation for May, so hopefully that will keep me motivated. I have a lot to lose also. Don't give up!!

Don't just join an active group. Be PART of an active group. Get active in motivating others, make a committment to your group members to read and comment on their logs. Being a good example of proper "peer training" is highly motivating in and of itself.
