Failing!


Thursday, May 23, 2013

I totally feel like I'm failing at this 'maintenance' stuff. I reached my weight goal range, and am now rather less motivated. Though I enjoy the running and want to keep it up. boo. I need to keep it up - forget my weight range! That's only 1/10th of the benefits of exercise! self-motivation=1, failure = 0

    I agree Maintenance is a different beast than Losing. Do you have any pics of before you reached your goal? If so maybe resurrecting it and posting it somewhere where you will see it will help. I wish I would of done something to keep myself motivated to maintain ...now I'm back to needing to lose 20lbs AGAIN and it totally bites because when I am good for a week or so I want to weigh in and see the 20lbs gone ...obviously it doesn't work that way, lol. I plan on keeping it off this time...I hate where I'm at now!

    I sometimes feel that way too. Losing was definitely easier than maintenance has been. I did great getting down to my goal. Since, I have watched my weight climb from the low end of my goal through the top of the high end. Keeping my eating in check has been my main problem. Though, now I have an ankle/Achilles issue that is keeping me from running, and that is not helping at all. Good luck to you!

    You are not failing!
I agree with what you wrote, maintenance is about maintaining your active lifestyle, good nutrition and feeling good about yourself.
Your target weight was a goal to reach, now it is an indicator that shows you are in balance and doing great.
