Over and over I come and go and it is always because I lack motivation to keep going. I just keep giving up, flat out. I am fat because I dont try. I try for a short time, then I just give up, plain and simple. I don't know what it is. I just lose motivation and figure it is easier to be the way I am.

I sit around and wish all day long that there would be an easy way out. There is not and I just have to get it through my head.

I need to lose weight for myself and my kids. I wont take them swimming because I cant stand to be in a suit. I dont wear shorts in the summer because I hate my legs and I refuse to wear dresses because I think they make me look fatter. I want to wear tank tops and shorts and I want to wear a swim suit! I dont want to be embarrassed anymore!!

I am looking for others in the Colorado Springs area. I would love to have a group of friends to go out and do activites with, play volleyball and softball, have healthy picnics, I would LOVE a support group!

Anyone out there??? I am open!!

My Goals:
I am sick of being overweight! I want to lose weight. I am ready! I used to be 125lbs :( I want to feel good and look good, for myself. I have been putting things off for so long now and doing for everyone else. I am ready for some ME time. I would LOVE to get back down to about 135..but realistically...I have set my goal to 150. If i can get down to that in the amount of time I have given myself (2 years) then I feel that anything will be able to be accomplished!

My Program:
Well I really need to work on my motivation to excersise! That is the big one! I will say I am flat out LAZY! All of the things I enjoy for excersise..all costs money that we just dont have right now. So my big step is to motivate myself to at least go on walks with the kids and the dog!!

Personal Information:
I am 34 years old and divorced. I work full time. I have 3 beautiful children Tristan (11/97), Caterina(3/02), and Killian (7/05).

Other Information:
I wish I had things that I enjoyed! I just dont have the time or the patience...I like instant satisfaction....which is probably why losing weight really stinks!! I cant wake up and be skinny!!

    I came across your page and just thought I'd let you know I know how you feel! I am so unmotivated and I do the same thing you do with the on and off thing. I just vented about 3 paragraphs long on some forum lol.

    I just wish we could see results everyday so that we know the work we do is worth it and not some waste of time. So, I just wanted to say good luck, and remember every day is a new day so you can try again. That's how I'm starting to look at it. I didn't do well with anything today so I'm going to try and dance for 20 minutes tomorrow...we'll see lol. emoticon
