I started out strong, & I had motivation: my husband. Now we are doing so much better & my motivation is slipping. My wobbly marriage gave me a great excuse for time to obsess over our issues while I sweated away the calories. I could take my frustration out in my exercises, but now we've finally talked out our problems & resolved a lot of them & it's no longer working to get me off the couch. I need to refocus on all of the other reasons I wanted to loose weight: smaller clothes=more closet space to fill
, less impact on my joints, being able to get on my overly tall horse without a boost, looking less like my mother, being healthier, more self-esteem, etc. etc.
