Lately, I've been thinking, Do I even want to lose weight? I know I probably should because I would be healthier if I did. But I feel healthier already. I exercise just about every day. Most days I workout 20-30 minutes, but some days I'm running late and only do 10 minutes. Most of the time, I make healthier food choices. But I'm not losing any weight. I know it's because I'm not attacking the problem aggressively. I'm not willing to abandon my efforts all together, but I also don't seem to have the motivation to work harder.

I like myself the way I am... my husband loves me the way I am... I don't have any serious health issues related to my weight. Why change?

I go to the doctor in 2 weeks and will be weighed. I suppose the number that appears on the scale will determine my future motivation. If it's higher than I think it is or than it has been, then I will be motivated to re-double my efforts. Because, for goodness sake, I don't want to GAIN. But if it's less or about the same, I doubt I will try any harder than I am now...

I guess a post like this will never get me voted a Sparkpeople Motivator! emoticon

    You said why you need to work out - to be healthier. Does not matter what the scale says, right?!

    You will find motivation, not excuses. You need to find a friend and make time to meet. Go for walks (at a good pace). Catch up, reconnect, and get healthy.

    What about taking dance lessons with your husband? Spice things up, have fun. When it is not a chore, you will be motivated. emoticon

    Doesn't matter what the blog does - I'm still glad you wrote it. The funny thing about losing weight is it only works if you give it your all - and if you are happy and healthy and like the choices you make, then that is AWESOME. That is the goal - to be happy with you and your body. Not a number on a scale.

    Good for you for realizing this. Best of luck!
