EVERYONE has had that problem. It takes a lot and you just have to keep telling yourself you can do this CONSTANTLY. Telling yourself that indulging in some of the most delicious foods and skipping the gym is not an option is a ritual we all face daily. You have to push yourself and drive yourself, no one will do this for you.
I have several things that drive me: my flatter stomach after just a week, the compliments of people who look at me and say they see the difference, my dad who said he'll give me 10bucks a pound, my boot camp trainer who pushes me when I want to throw in the towel who I do not want to let down, my stepbrother who texts me every day routinely asking if I'm going to the gym, my colleagues who have asked how it has been going that I don't want to sound like a failure to. The feeling I get when I am done at the end of the day and knowing I did something to better my health overall and I will rock a bikini before summer ends this year.
At the end of the day, though, I started this for me, no one else. I want to like what I see in the mirror. I want to walk into a bar and believe that everyone is looking thinking "damn, she's hot," not "damn, who invited the fat chick." I want to know that, when I have kids, I'll be able to keep up with them. I want to know that I, if something happens to me down the road - heart disease/attack, diabetes, etc - it wasn't because I failed myself.
You have ONE body. If you had one vehicle for the rest of your life, you would make sure all maintenance was done on time, every time. You would take care, wash and polish and keep it running good. Why would you not do the same for you?
It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle change.
