Perhaps your goal is too big? If you are focusing on losing 50 pounds it can seem very overwhelming and unattainable when you only see one pound lost. However, the way you reach 50 is one pound at a time. Here are a few articles that might help you stay motivated to keep moving forward.

If you see my tracker you will see I started pretty much where you are. That was last Fall (2012). And today I am at goal. You WILL get there if you stick with it! I used the next clothing size down as short term goal for motivation. I started in 16/18's and now am in mostly 6's with some 4's that are cut big.

When you figure it out, lemme know. I know my ticker says my goal is 61lbs...but that's only my first goal. I have cumulatively 145lbs to lose FROM MY CURRENT WEIGHT...to get to a healthy BMI. I'm doing two chunks of 60's and then one chunk of whatever's left after 120lbs. Idk how close or not you are to me, but if you have a lot less than me, look at it this way - yours doesn't look that bad anymore does it?

First Goal Weight: 260lbs

Second Goal Weight: 200lbs

Third Goal Weight: 160lbs

Much Love & Happiness To You On Your Journey.
