On again, off again doesn't work. If you want to change your lif, you need to change your life. Here are my suggestions:
You say that you don't have any motivation. Here is your assignment for tonight: Write down why you want to lose weight. You wouldn't be here if you did not want to lose weight. List all the reasons why those extra pounds are burdensome. That is your motivation.
Part 2 is determining whether wanting to reach that goal is worth the effort needed to do so. If you do not think it is worth it, nobody else can help you to get there. If you DO think it is worth the trouble and hard work, nothing can stop you! We can encourage you, we can help you through the temptations and hard spots, but we cannot give you the motivation to do something that you do not want to do.
Part 3 is your plan. How do you plan to lose the weight that you have decided is worth the effort to lose? Will it be dieting? How? Calories? How many? Atkins? Weight Watchers? What kind of exercise and how much are you prepared to do at this point? If you don't have a plan, you will continue doing the same thing you are doing now and that isn't helping you to get to where you want to be..... which brings us to step 4...
Part 4- What is your goal? You can set an ultimate goal, but 50# is a lot to look at. You need to set smaller measurable goals. Not all of them should or have to do with weight. Perhaps it is to move for 10 minutes straight. That movement might be walking, dancing, jogging or marching in place. You might want to get below a certain milestone number (those over 200# tend to strive for ONE-derland). Or look at a 5% weightloss. YOU decide the goals.
Now put these all together and get this plan in motion. Create your Sparkpage so that I (and others) can cheer you on personally. Check out other Sparkpages and read some blogs for encouragement. We can help.
