What keeps you motivated? Is it a rewards system? A motivational saying or picture? A upcoming event? I need to figure something out I seem to be stuck here at the half way point. It's not that I have plateaued I just seem to have gotten lazy about everything lately. I don't have time I don't have energy my kids are sick my fiancÚ is working crazy overtime I have a million reasons whey I can't and they always seem to overshadow the reasons I can. It feels like I've been here doing the weight loss thing forever I've been here off and on since 2006 I just want to be done!
To be fair it's not like those were wasted years, I'm trying to focus on the positive I got serious about spark in 2010 at around 195lbs since then I've had another baby but still managed to lose 30lbs successfully I look at my spark page and see the original set of goals I set for myself back then -to go up a flight of stairs without getting winded, done! to be able to wear a single digit pant size, not quite but I did go from a 16 to a 10 so I'm close and at least making progress, to have the energy to do things instead of just sitting around, I do find myself sitting out of less activities I'm confident in my ability to be able to keep up with others who are being active so I am more likely to participate- to lose enough weight that my boobs shrink, well I still feel like they're huge but I'd say they've gone down a cup size at least-to wear shorts again-this may never happen I'm learning to accept it.-to adopt healthy habits to pass to my kids, done my kids eat super healthy and love fruits and veggies they prefer water over other drinks and we try to do active things as a family regularly.- to finally be out of the obese bmi category, close again 4lbs away from that mark
So while I may not have met all my goals I have at least made progress on all of them and it's not like I want to give up I just need to get my second wind so to speak.
