People are always asking me where I get my "attitude", and my "drive". I tell them, I am strong now because I was weak for so long. I have gained faith in myself and have a love for myself that I didn't before. Hard work is indeed hard, but it is far more satisfying than sitting around on your ass gaining nothing but pounds! Be motivated by many things, yourself being one, your kids and family another. Or just do it for the haters so that in the end, they are left with themselves to hate!
