After going back to school this summer and staying very busy I have loss my motivation. I have thought on many days in the last week...I'll start today and stay busy doing other things. But, today I log back into Sparkpeople and find that I'm not the only one that wonders why start over. I know I'm worth the effort but the thing that gets to me is others I have chatted with forever on here are reaching their goal weight, so what happened to me and where is that motivation I had before. I have no desire to start exercising and have somewhat loss my desire to run...especially when my weight was not changing. I ask myself where do you want to start and end up thinking does it really matter. I have attempted to eat healthy and exercise like a mad women for months and months and only loss 2-4 lbs. I also had blood work done and everything came back normal. Really who does P90X for 45 days straight and eats strict and only losses 2 lbs??? And since going back to school, I have not changed my eating habits but without exercise gained back 3 lbs. So here I go again changing or maybe this time deleting my tracker this really irritates me.
I believe what gets me the most is I have no one around me that really cares about their health and fitness. Those that do want a quick fix which doesn't happen so they fail weekly and sometimes daily. Then on the other hand I see others with a great metabolism ...and gosh darn it this bothers me to no end that is just honesty!! I know I am doing this for myself but I just need that extra kick to get the mind set.
Any ideas of how to get me motivated again especially since school is starting back on Aug 31??
I'm starting today and moving toward the goal!! No Excuses!!
