Trying to Lose it All Again

Update 3/31/16
Well its almost 5 months and I have gotten nowhere. I keep working out but am defeated now because I am seeing no positive results. Because I just took the last two weeks off from working out I have gained back the 3 lbs that I lost in 3 months. I am quickly losing my motivation but I keep continuing on waiting for results. Everything that worked in the past for me is not working now. Maybe next month will be the month my body starts to change but I doubt it. If anyone has ...

Well its almost 5 months and I have gotten nowhere. I keep working out but am defeated now because I am seeing no positive results. Because I just took the last two weeks off from working out I have gained back the 3 lbs that I lost in 3 months. I am quickly losing my motivation but I keep continuing on waiting for results. Everything that worked in the past for me is not working now. Maybe next month will be the month my body starts to change but I doubt it. If anyone has any suggestions I will take them.

Update 01/26/16
Coming on 3 months since I started working out again. Only lost 1 lb since then. Doesn't look like it is working. I am currently trying to eat clean and I am doing strength training 15-20 min 4-5x weekly and 25-35 min elliptical cardio with heart rate range 145-155.

Update 11/23/15
So I officially started working out again 11/6/15 just doing cardio for roughly 30 min on the elliptical, 5 days a week. My attempt back in September didn't work out. So far haven't noticed a different and it has been 3 weeks. I am trying to go into this slowly. Not going to rush into 45 min cardio, 45 min strength training like I was at before. I am going to take my time getting back there and when I am there *I am not going to stress* about it. About weight loss. About getting a cookie. About sidetracking once in awhile. I realize the weight won't come flying back on if I miss a day or eat a piece of pie but I won't lose either. I need to tighten up my diet still but I am going steady with the cardio again and will soon add weight training back in. I don't know where I found my motivation, I actually don't think I found it I think I just got tired of waiting to start again and I just decide to start and I've been back at it and I know if I keep it up I will see changes it will just take a little time at first.

Update 9/4/15
I have started working out again at home since last week and decided to go "Back to Basics" as I call it and pretty much start over slow and steady and just take my time but this time I am going to change things every 6 weeks and give myself goals for each 6 weeks as well to keep me focused on the small things instead of the big overall because if I think about how long it might take me to lose all the weight I regained (40 lbs) I get frustrated and de motivated, so instead I will congratulate the small wins, even if its just a pound and I will not beat myself up over a cookie and will not beat myself up if I just didn't have time to get that run in for today even though I have tried every other day of the week. I know my problem with the weight loss journey is stress and I need to decrease it and hopefully it has better effects on my body losing weight.

So as of the past year I have gained back all the weight I spent 4 years losing and I have completely lost the motivation to work (what I feel might be another long 4 years) to lose it all over again. I'm looking for motivation to help me restart my journey and get me going. I know this is a process where I will yo-yo if I don't keep to it and this is things I must learn but for right now I get frustrated thinking about the amount of time (4 days 45 min strength and 6 days 1 hour cardio) to get back down again. I always felt like I didn't have time and now I really feel like I don't have time and I no longer work out 2 hours a day. Another thing I struggle with is that I am constantly tired and in order to work out I need a stimulant like caffeine but then by bed time I am wide awake. Any advice or help I would appreciate. Thanks!

Hi, I started working out back in November 2010. Since then I have lost 35 pounds. Still would like to get to 112 as a final weight, maybe push myself lower just to see if I can, but nothing extreme. I feel like I have been stuck at a plateau for months now. Sometimes I feel as though I don't have it figured out and I get off track. Other than that I like working out, duh, especially as Jillian Michaels as my trainer, I have several of her dvds plus her fitness adventure video game, I aspire to achieve a fitness level like hers one day. One of my recent goals to work towards is becoming very fit and lean/muscular.

My Goals:
1.) I would like to re-lose all the weight I gained back and actually enjoy it this time! I was so miserable the first time around.

2.) I would like to learn maintenance once I do lose the weight again.

3.) I do not want to stress this one! No beating myself up over eating a cookie or not getting in a work out. And to add what I want into my diet in moderation to prevent me from binge eating.

4.) Become really healthy so that I can keep up with everybody ;)

My Program:
So far I am focusing on 25-35 min of cardio 5x a week with 15-20 min strength training 4-5x a week.

I did see the PF article yesterday - thank you for thinking of me!! It's actually doing a little better - I'm wearing a dumb splint-thing at night, and I'm stretching pretty much constantly (gastrocnemius/soleus). It's a slow go, but slow progress is better than no progress.

My goal is to be back out on the road by January 1. :)

Mental block are the perfect words to describe what I'm going through right now. And I'm trying to figure it out. The only person standing in my own way right now is me, and I'm trying to figure out how to get out of my way. We can and will get back to where we were, and go even farther. It might take longer than we thought, but we will get there. emoticon

Thank you SO much for your comment on my blog! My binges (until this month at least) have been just after I ovulate, generally last 3 or 4 days, and are only at night right before bed. Then once I get through that rough patch I'm fine, no urges or anything. I've removed the foods I would have binged on (cocktail peanuts and potato chips) from the house, but it seems I just moved on to chocolate chips and peanut butter. I can't get rid of the peanut butter since I eat it for breakfast every morning. Maybe I'm craving a nutrient that time of the month that peanuts provide? I don't know. My PMS had gotten out of control a few months back and I added a B-complex vitamin which has helped the crying/screaming fits but the bingeing still seems to be a problem. If I figure anything else out I'll let you know!
