Hi again. A, one of our members was asking for some suggestions for social media in helping her stay motivated . To me it's a small thing, but all the small things add up to a whole lot of positive in my life. Please feel free to add your favorite social media link.

Most of these are people that are on a big (100+ pounds to lose) weight loss journey, have already lost hundreds of pounds, or national fitness trainers that I think are emotionally supportive in how they post content online.

Hope this helps and please add your own!

I just read "Living With The Band" by Victoria Ashton and it really lifted my spirits, gave me insights about myself and totally inspired me.  Just loved it!  Even if you're not thinking about or dealing with band surgery, there are great "pearls" in there.  And, she's really funny...

Dr. Phil does a lot of promotions on his FB page but he also puts good quotes on there like today:

‎"Sometimes you've just got to give yourself what you wish someone else would give you." - Dr. Phil

I read that one and thought to myself "Don't I know that's RIGHT!" :smileyhappy:

Start by doing what is necessary; then do what is possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. -Saint Francis of Assisi
What will you do today that is necessary for good heath and fitness?
