Well Im just sort of rambling. I have joined several challenges trying to get a jumpstart on my weight loss again & I have set goals. But for some reason, I can't bring my body & my mind together to do the same things. I know what I need to do & I have the desire to do it. But what happened to the drive??? I can see my clothes fitting tighter, face spreading, arms starting to sag again & that isn't the motivation that I need to get back on the good foot!!!

Ok so what is it??? What is taking me so long when I know what I should be doing?? I kind of don't understand it & I know Im not a quitter! I am just a little puzzled with myself though. I really hate this feeling of sedentary, motionless just being here. Idk like I said its a rant to self to get the lead out already & just freaking do it already!!! Its not new!!!

    I agree with fit_teri. Start off with small goals. Sometimes we want to try so hard we get overwhelmed. Last week I decided to start taking better care of myself by washing my face and doing my make-up and hair every day regardless if I was planning to go out that day or not. It may not directly be helping me to lose weight, but it makes me feel good about myself, which in turn makes me more motivated to exercise and eat right. I also put a lot of my faith in God to help me overcome my insecurities and ask Him every day to help me be healthy. Have faith that He will not let you fail, because God does not desire for you to be unhappy. I truly believe that in order to be successful in weight loss, you need to start by having a healthy mind.
    I know how you feel, trust me. Just take it one day at a time, one goal at a time. Like fit_teri said, we are our worst enemies. But you CAN do it, I believe in you! Look at the progress you have made so far!

    I wish I had a good answer for you. Do you feel any better today, after getting this in writing. It's so hard's like our brains are our worst enemy.

    Maybe you could write out a plan....for the day, for the week, whatever. Start small, with things you know you can accomplish but will still be challenging and lead to bigger and better....almost like you would do for someone just starting out.

    Best of luck to you!
