Who inspires you?

Who do you draw your inspiration from on your weightloss or fitness journey? Celebs? Family members? Friends?

Not sure tbh. Dont really know anyone personally who has lost a huge amount like i intend to.
I think people in general when they maintain forever... a long period of time, because that is genuinely the hardest part i think, a forever battle.

Someone messaged me on FB the other day after i posted my weight loss saying i was her inspiration to get back on her diet and on her exercise bike. That was nice, a bit of a boost

SC have you had too much sun seriously though, that made me feel all warm and squishy lol! And Ms right, you'd best be telling her lots!

I tend to get my inspiration from people I see walking around! Especially at school, as it's the kind of place where it's like a chuffing fashion show plus they all have lots of pennies for personal trainers and whatnot!

I do have a couple of pics I screenshotted, I think off mfp, of people that I'd like to look like! Although I've hit a wall cos I don't think I'll ever tone my bloody tummy up! Guess it would help if I tried

I get inspiration from successful people who've turned their lives around and lost the weight and can stick to a healthy lifestyle and are committed to workouts. I wanna be like that!

Awww I felt a bit of sick in my mouth

Nah I did have to read that twice though LOL ... you don't tell me enough As for *pift*

BeFit was the one who inspired me to do exercise
Toyah is a FAB support (text buddies)
Belle I think has done amazing on her fitness journey and I sometimes pester her for some good strenght training advice/opinions
Mamafy has stuck through a couple of plateaus and done great so I didn't quit through mine

AND THAT makes us an awesome team

Girls on an unrelated FB page are amazinggggg too as a group, some of yiu are here YAY x

I don't know really...I scour MFP for before & after pictures which helps me to see how possible it is even if it is hard work.

This forum is doing wonders for my motivation tho, with you lot spurring me on! I find MFP a bit too snobby LOL

Other than that I don't really know who inspires me.
