Complacent in the 180's....I should NOT feel like this

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

Why is it that when I get into the low 180's I begin to feel complacent? I start to lose the drive to press on toward my goal of 155.

I look in the mirror and am pleased with how I look (while standing ) which makes my mind say, "WOW! You look fab! So, go ahead...have that carb-ladened snack. It won't hurt. You look great and fit into your 14's very well! Yummy, yummy, yummy!" Or maybe instead of my mind saying that it's my willpower telling me to take a break. "Oh it's no big deal...go 2 chocolate chip cookies! You know you can have just 1 bag of look great!"

So today begins the tougher fight for me. I am heading into my last 27 lbs to get to my goal and this is where I typically become complacent. I need extra support and positivity! I want to reach 155 lbs. by the end of July. I really want to get fit and toned.

Please stop by sporadically and send some postive vibes and support my way! Love to you all my SP buddies!!!


Onward and upward!

    Oh my gosh I am SO with you... just at a different weight! I've been gainin and loosing the same 5 pounds for like 6 months! I bounce between 152 and 147. And every time I get to 147, instead of blasting through that plateau level I totally get complacent and lose my drive and allow myself to snack and slack off on work outs and end up back at 153 (currently at 150.4) I'm totally with you! WE CAN DO THIS!!!!

    Woooo-hooooo!!! GO US!!!!!!!!!!!

    I always do the same thing! My target has always been 130 but i always stop 10 to 13 pounds before that and then completely stop working out and then go to my old eating habits! This time I'm at going all the way and will keep up the maintenance!

    I've had this problem for the past 4 years. Each year I work hard and get down to the 150's, and then I stop trying so hard and end up gaining back to the 170's. I've never reached my goal-weight (140ish), because I keep back tracking! I think this is what they mean by yo-yo dieting...rather than a lifestyle change.

    183 is the death of me. I have been stuck at 183 on three different occasions!!! Guess I just admitted I have a problem with regaining pounds lost!! oops! Let's both power through to the 70's and not worry about the 50's yet??!!! Good Luck!

    I'm having the same problem. I've almost lost 50 pounds and seem to have lost the motivation to continue to my target weight of 150. Of course, since I am at 214, I am a LONG way away from my goal but am still very proud that I have lost some weight and people have noticed.
    I don't plan to give up but I have decided that I'm ok if my weight loss slows down a bit. Sometimes life just gets in the way and I know it is harder to lose the weight once you have lost a significant amount.
    So, I'll try not to stress and will be glad to check in with you so that we can both get to our goal. emoticon
