I am at a point where I am not as motivated, maybe if I didn't think so much about it. But a couple of years ago I almost lost my mom and she told me I better lose weight so that I do not have the chance to go through what she did with diabetes and all. I saw that my mom being overweight did not help with surgeries and all. So here I am walking and have been over a year, I live up north so when I could not go outside I went on my treadmill. I know my eating has been about the same or a little less. I need help with my saddlebags and my pooch (belly). Now I truly believe that age plays a big factor, and I did notice that I got my belly fat in the 50's but how can I firm that out without surgery. I know I can do it but does living in an area that is colder and snowy make a difference? I noticed that everyone lives in a warmer climate than mine??? and I see what can be done...

Over 80% of weight management is about what you eat and how much. I empathize with your frustration. Your best path is to leave the frustration behind and use the knowledge that you gained to ramp up your efforts and mindful choices.

I started this program in June and have gained 6 pounds. I did the 28 day challenge and actually lost two but gained it back. Has this happened to anyone else???? It's hard to stay motivated. I am working to eating toward the lower end of my calorie range......did that 4 out of 7 days last week. I did go over my calorie count x 2 days though. I'm going out of town next week but will do the 28 day challenge again when I get back. However, I'll keep exercising, eating 5 servings of fruits/veggies, and drinking water (always a hard one for me). Tempted to get diet pills but don't really want to go that route.
