Things have been not real relaxing lately, i havent been doing all the exercising that i have in the past i am just not motivated like before, i dont know why i havent been losing like i was before i guess that i am just not into my ruteen anymore, i lack motivation and inspiration, i have no idea what i want anymore out of myself, i am lost and not into anything anymore, i need help and i dont know how to get the help i need, its not that i am depressed or anything i just am not into losing weight anymore i dont want to quit or give up but i feel myself not giving 100% anymore, i am not a quitter but i am lost in not wanting to do anything anymore and lack any kind of emotion about losing weight, i walk but thats just about all i do now and i dont even like to walk now i have no idea why, i am in need of some advice on what i need to do and how to get there, please if you can help me out, maybe i can get back on track.
Thank you in advance

I agree, you may not feel like it, but if you can force yourself to work through these blahs, you may be able to get your mojo back. I like the suggestion of trying something new that seems like fun, such as dance classes or bowling, or something like that, and the suggestion of trying new fews is great!
Keep checking in on your teams, and post. The interaction will help, as will having a workout partner or buddy. And don't forget the huddle wall.

like the others have said - we all reach the "blahs" now and then - there are a couple ways to shake them - try something different, like a class or a youtube fitness video, something you haven't done before, maybe zumba or bellydancing or free weights, and do something with a fitness component that doesn't feel like fitness, like working in the garden or painting a room in your house - you'd be surprised how many calories you can burn with stuff like that!
also, make sure you're not in a food rut - try a new veggie you've never eaten or swap recipes with a friend.
out of the comfort zone and into the fun!!

We all go through it from time to time and you have come to th right place for motivation. The best thing that I have done to push myself is to do different and new workouts. Keep your chin up, we are all here for you.

I think we all go through this. I was feeling the same way yesterday. It was almost like why bother it is easier not to but we both know that is how we got this way to begin with. Our minds don't want us to change so we make it harder on ourselves than it needs to be.

Teresa, I think we all go through this a little way into the process. Here's what I did: continue tracking food, walk every day (at least ten minutes), and work through the Spark Points page to read articles / blogs / etc. to earn the maximum points each day. By keeping engaged, the motivation eventually returns and the other "measurements"improve (energy level, fit of clothing, blood sugar reading).
Having someone, maybe your niece, to exercise with may help, too!
