Auggie1doggie~ I can totally relate to what you are saying. I started my weight loss journey over a year ago after I had my second (and last) child. SP helped me lose the weight. My real problems began AFTER I lost my weight. My main goal was to lose the baby fat and look better. As time went on I realized that losing weight was a good goal to start with, but it wasn't going to get me motivated to keep the weight off. Although I havent gained all the weight back, I'm not happy with myself. I have been complacent. I allowed myself to get too relaxed in my eating and exercise routines. I, too, question my motivation. I ask myself why I'm not motivated.
I was reading the posts to your post and I liked what someone said about focusing on other things besides weight loss... they talked about being healthy for their family. I think they have it right. I need to focus on being healthy, not being sick, tired, depressed, lazy, unmotivated, exhausted. I need to exercise and eat well to be active and energized. I need to get enough sleep and lower stressors in my life. Overall health is what I know I need to focus on, not just the weight loss part of healthy living.
We are all in this together and we all struggle. We will keep going and we will achieve our goals once again. you will be healthy and happy and I will too.
Thank you for this post. It's just what I needed!!
