Maybe if you can dig out some clothes you wore as a slimmer you and kept a favorite where you can see it, that could be motivating.

Nothing wrong with losing slow though. Try amping up your exercise routine.

Welcome and good luck. Yes, it is a long and difficult process but the things on this site really help like the trackers and motivational material. The loving support from other members and the opportunity to give loving support are also invaluable in the process. We all understand but nothing worthwhile is instant except maybe kisses!!

It seems to help me to concentrate on the "ah ha" moment that made me want to lose weight in the beginning. That usually sparks my engine!

I think you will find the nutrition and fitness trackers helpful. You can do a "slow" jump start by calculating daily caloric intake and reducing in by 250-500 and that should help you start losing the pounds. Good luck!

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Dear GingerC5, I too have a hard time keeping the motivation going! I feel great about the progress I've made, but tend to lose my vision of where I want to be. I keep myself in line by reminding myself that it is just as easy to put back all the pounds lost so far, and I don't want to start over from square 1 again! To keep things going in the right direction, perhaps you could focus on how well you did as far as healthy eating and exercise for the day. Reaching smaller goals tends to help me move forward faster than looking at the "big picture". Just keep reaching for your goals and you'll get there! emoticon

Welcome. The trackers are very useful here, and the challenges might provide you with something different for that jump-start. emoticon

I've been on an exercise regime for about a year now and have lost about a pound a month! That's slow! That weight, however, should be gone for good. I've lost inches, but I'm not yet at my ideal weight. Now that all my clothes fit, I'm finding it hard to motivate to lose the fat. After all, the clothes I fit into are still clothes from my Heavier Me, not my Healthiest Me! It's been so long since I've been trim, I'm not sure I can imagine myself any smaller! Anyone else have that problem? It's a 'vison thing' problem. I really don't want this flabby fat to hide the progress I've made on my abs (I know they're down there somewhere). Pure weight loss is really what I need. So, here I am.
