I can't seem to get it together anymore, I have way to many excuses on why I can't do it! Too tired, not enough time, don't feel good but in reality I just won't get up & do it! When I stepped on the scale this morning it made me not only mad but gave me a sick feeling that I've let it go AGAIN! I'm almost backup to where I started 2 years ago - yes that long a go! So why do I keep sliding backwards - I know what to do? How do you stay motivated? How do people get it together & stick with it? As I watched the Biggest Loser this week, I kept telling myself that I would get up & exercise during the commercials but guess what I had it DVR, so I could fast forward so no commercials. I listen to their stories, looked at their wonderful make overs & thought that could be me if I put the effort forward. I know what to do - I just don't seem to want to do it that bad. But as I write all this boo hoo stuff, I will NOT give up! Today is a new day & I will get back with it! I promise to myself that I am worth all the effort it takes to get it together!

    You can do it, you did it before. Putting your thoughts in your blog is great because its a diary for later and it shows you how many people are 'working' on their lives as well.
Great blog.

    It's been a hard yr. for me too. It has taken a long time to get back on track. One Step at a time. As I age it is harder to keep going. Just take one challenge at a time till you master it. I am doing better on drinking my water and I know it helps keep my body flushed and keeps me feeling fuller. emoticon and we hare here to help. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Ah, if only there was that one magical motivational answer. We would all meet all sorts of goals!
I find Biggest Loser inspirational as well. Maybe finding a person on the show you relate to can help get you started with motivation, but to keep going it needs to come from within.
I hope you fight out what that internal motivator is for you. Keep at it!

    You can do it, I think a lot of us are in the same position. I' still struggling to get back on track after gaining back 25 of the almost 70 that I had lost. I have had weeks where I have gone from irritated to upset to downright pi$$ed off at the scale. I know that when I get back to basics and up my fruits and veggies, drink more water, and track everything I lose weight. I have found that even if I go over my daily goals for fat and calories some days that just by tracking I manage to keep it together enough to lose by the end of the week. emoticon

    One step at a time! I gained weight over the holidays and finally got it back to where it was before Thanksgiving. Think the twice a week pulmonary rehab exercising is helping plus I'm trying hard to eat more fruits and veggies. Still stuck on 6 glasses of water a day, maybe someday I'll make it to 8. You can do this! emoticon emoticon

    That picture is most off-putting. Which is a darned good thing to my mind. Specially as I've just been wondering what to eat for lunch. LOL Think I'll aim for something a bit healthier than originally planned.

Thank you.

I hope you can figure out what will keep you motivated. It isn't always easy, and I know it is a case of trial and error. I would suggest pick one thing and stick to that, which will then give you a positive sense of achievement and make you feel good about adding a second thing, and so forth. Building up little streaks can be a really good way to keep motivated.

Good luck.
