I just can't find the motivation

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

I don't want this to sound like a poor me thing. Bottom line is that I'm not motivated and can't seem to get the motivation I need. I was so excited to join the weight loss group at work when I first started there. Unfortunately it was the holidays and we all fell off the wagon together. We never seemed to get the steam back. We did attempt to get going again and made up some new goals. That was okay until most of the people in the group decided to go with one of the new fad protein diets. That means they will be losing several pounds a week and if I actually really work at it, I will be lucky to lose a pound. I am sure that mine will be easier to keep off in the end but it is still a hit to my ego each week on weigh in day when I'm still not getting anywhere and they are dropping the pounds. I don't plan on staying with the group and get the booby prize each week. I have to be honest and say that I don't care how I look anymore but I do really need to get the healthy thing going again. I have a hard time walking because my feet and legs get to hurting so bad. I have no strength or energy to do anything after work. Somethings got to give. I don't think my biggest problem is losing weight as much as it is eating healthy but I just simply don't have that motivation. I just need something to kick me in my butt and get me moving again.

    I can hear the discouragment through your blog...this is tough. I wrote a blog about motivation last week, here is the link. I hope that it can encourage you and perhaps give you a change of perspective regarding motivation.

    If nothing else, you should know, motivation is Optional, not a requirement to making the choices you need and want. I hope my blog helps you and you just decide to move forward with the things you know you need to be doing...motivation or not. Take Care:)
