Anyone have any motivational tv shows or movies they watch?

I've got about a million motivating reasons to lose weight. I've also "started over" about a million times. It's a long weekend and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on tv shows or movies they find inspirational. They don't necessarily have to be weight loss based but anything that will help to light a fire! Thanks!

    One that motivated me a while back was a PBS show. It had Dr. Furham.
    Google: Dr. Furham PBS Video. Look for the 1+ hour video.

    Skip TV and take that time to walk and get fresh air.

    I also find My 600 lb Life motivating. I DO NOT want to be like one of them.

    I really like Terri Saville Foy on YouTube she gives life talks and guidance. Hope inducing and she's like a best friend on YouTube. (She's a Christian). Her talks are very practical. I'm not religious but I find her videos inspirational.

    Most of those "PBS doctors" (Fuhrman, Hyman, Perlmutter, Amen).

    Also, climbing movies, particularly, "Touching the Void".

    Vikings.

    Because I've always wanted to be a shield maiden.
    I'm more motivated by shows about strength and bravery than weightloss.

    Seconding extreme makeover weight loss edition, I find it's the most 'real' reality tv show about the highs and lows of losing weight

    The new Wonder Woman movie was my motivation to look like a Greek God.
