motivation lacking... last 10 pounds

Friday, July 20, 2012

seem to take forever to lose! Anyone else find that the last 10 pounds seem as if it feels like losing 100 pounds? I keep losing and gaining back and forth, then my motivation weens. Since the death of our dog, walking is not in my thoughts. I have not been exercising the way I should, maybe if I just go on a walk this morning breathing in the fresh air and remembering how much I love to walk.

    The last 10 lbs are always hard. Not only does the body stubbornly try to hold on to them, but when you're so close, it can taste like victory already, so you almost want to give up!

Now's the time to try a bunch of new things so that exercise doesn't get old and boring. Walking is always good, and so are swimming, zumba, aquazumba, dance (have you tried salsa or east coast swing?). If exercise doesn't seem like a chore, then the only thing you have to focus on is your food :)

    I'm down to my last 20lbs and it's not going anywhere either!
