There are days I don't exactly feel like doing a workout but knowing how awesome I always feel after, overrides the inkling to be lazy.
My healthy lifestyle is ingrained and I cannot even imagine giving up living healthy.
No I have no desire to live an unhealthy life. emoticon

no .. I want to live a healthier life but it does take a lot of effort but I know I need to do it for myself and my family....so I think it is something I just have to do so I can't really think about the alternative emoticon

Not really. I like what being healthy does for me. I try to remember that if I'm feeling bad.

no, some days I eat things that I don't eat on a regular basis, but that is life. I would never go back on this lifestyle!

I can do it!!

There are some days I totally want to splurge and eat 5 or 6 slices of pizza or some ridiculous amount of ice cream with the works like I used to, or do both of those in the same evening. Just as quickly, though, I think about how it's absolutely not worth undoing all the hard work I've done and that I'd only regret it in every way afterward and probably feel like crud physically, mentally, and emotionally. There isn't any craving that can't wait for another time and that can't be quenched with less of the same thing. There's a healthy way to give in to those types of things!

As far as exercise goes, I almost always want to work out. I get upset when I don't manage to fit one in!

Giving up is against my BIG WHY. That is not to say that i eat garbage every now and then or that I sit on my butt instead of working out. However, those times are few and far between. Being around for my nieces and nephews far outweighs any desire to quit.

There are plenty of times when I felt like giving up a healthy lifestyle but then I always reach this point when I realized I need to keep at it. It can be hard with the constant temptations but I just have to remember why I started in the first place.

Like Sailor said, at some point (not really sure when) my workouts became necessary to my mental/emotional well being and I felt noticeably worse when I missed one. Same is true for food, if I have two large/fatty meals in a row, my body can't deal with it anymore because my stomach is kind of used to whole, unprocessed foods. Basically, I think when you dedicate yourself to living better, you end up not missing how you used to eat/not exercise.

Gabe,

I have this saying on my wall "I wish I wouldn't have worked out today." - said No One who had ever just finished a workout.

The only days I ever regret my workout routine are the days I DON'T do it.

Keep up the good work. You are well on your way to a healthy lifestyle.

Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels and looks.

Yes, from time to time (but rarer as time passes by) I get these thoughts too - especially when I'm upset or when I have a temptation near me (like some very delicious brownies).
But the feeling of not giving in to these thoughts is so MUCH BETTER than those 2 minutes of sugary pleasure emoticon .
CAPTATHLETICA, keep up the good work!

I have never considered giving up ... in fact even including for years prior to my weight-loss I have always eaten real healthy and gotten exercise because that is how I have always preferred to live. It was just a little too much of a good thing - LOL!

I don't exactly feel like giving up living healthy, but there are times when I just want to eat a whole stinkin' pizza all by myself. HOWEVER, I know how miserable I would be after such a gorging, so maybe I just have a couple pieces of pizza one day and get back to my healthy ways. I figure I can have those indulgences, just not ALL of the in one sitting - have to spread them out over a month or so. All is well.

Every now and then I'll tell myself that I'm done with exercising and watching what I eat, and that as soon as I get home I'm going to order a large pizza, wings, cake, coke and ice cream. I tell myself I'm going to sleep in late like I used to until 10-11am, and just play video games or watch tv.

I then get home, but before I eat anything I start reading the nutrition. I end up still eating healthy and within calorie range. I go to bed and still wake up at my usual 6:30am time. I then continue to do my normal 1 hour workout laughing about all those stupid thoughts and feeling good that I didn't give in.

So yes, I do feel like giving in and giving up, but luckily now my brain controls my body instead of my cravings. How about you?

Take it one day at a time. :)
