Everyone runs into motivation problems once in awhile. Though easier said than done, you can't let it get you down. I've mentioned before that it takes 21-42 days to make something new into a habit that you'll continue doing.
Do you have any buddies that you can workout with or will help keep you accountable? And have you ever visited the message boards on the Team Beachbody website? There's lots of people there doing the same program as you, and you may even be able to find a group starting the same day as you to help keep you motivated. They also have WOWY (Work Out With You), which is a virtual gym to meet up with people to work out. I know there have been many times when I haven't felt like working out, but I know I've got friends "waiting" for me in WOWY. So I may have to drag myself to workout occasionally, but knowing there are going to be other people there cheering me on is a definite motivation booster.

I guess I'm weird. I like the kicks, but not all the dancey stuff in 2 & 3. Do the ones you like. Mix it up with some other routines. Just keep moving. As you get better and see results, you'll like it more.
It's funny you say that because at the weight that I am I decided to sign up for swim lessons and I do like it alot. I have had my son in lessons for years but I always felt uncomfortable in a swimsuit which I still do but I love it. I try to make it as much of a workout as I can. I found that it makes me hungry after though. That never happened to me. Exercise used to always suppress my appetite. Also posting is not my regular but I have it in my phone as a schedule to log in my food.I will try to be better at this.
I would suggest finding a workout that you enjoy so you will stick with it. Also like Charlene says remember how good you feel after a workout because there are going to be days you don't want to do it! Something like that anyway! Lol! Nutrition is a huge factor too! I got stuck around 170 until I really started counting the calories! Good luck and keep on posting so we know how your doing!
"Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food."
I know what you mean about the food. I have been thinking about going back to Weight Watchers. I also need consistency in the worst way so maybe I will go with Ab Jam and the 20 minute workout for awhile.
well, then don't concour a mountain - do the 20 minute workout and if you feel up to it, add the ab jam. I personally don't like CP1 so if I want a long workout - I do Punch Kick and Jam... or the 20 minute workout. Do whatyou enjoy - but the thought of doing all the kicks in CP1 is enough for me to not do it. although when I try it after a long time - it's not so bad, but still not my favorite.
How long? hmm... I know I first noticed results in my arms, and you'll notice results in your stamina - that you can keep up with it! I never have been good at limiting my food - so I can't say I lost any weight till I started Weight watchers.
Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3: 13, 14
How do you stay motivated enough to see results? I have started and stopped so many times not just with turbo jam but other home videos as well. I always feel like I just conquered a mountain after I have finished cardio party 1 but then I don't go back for more. HELP!
