I let the excuses get the best of me. I'm tired. I don't feel like it. I just want to relax. I don't want to spend the time chopping up vegetables to make a healthy meal. I could go on and on. It's what has packed on the extra 55 pounds that I'm carrying today. It's time to make better choices instead of using the same old excuses!

    I know exactly what you mean! I actually have a funny photo in my gallery that says "I'd do anything to lose 10 lbs...except eat healthy and work out." I put that there because of all the excuses I've made and ALL the while I'm saying to myself " I wish I could just lose some weight!"

    I think the key to getting out of our excuseville is motivation. And you know how you get motivation? By doing something that makes you feel good. So just pick some activity that is fun or even relaxing (like a walk through the park or neighborhood) and when you find that burst of energy- cut up all those veggies at once for the week.
    And always remember how GOOD it feels to eat healthy and get some oxygen :)
    You can always lay down and rest when your done!
    We can do it!! emoticon

    I get those thoughts all the time too so what I do now is I answer myself. Every time I think "I'm tired" I remind myself how I exercised last time and felt better. When I don't want to take the time out to make a healthy meal-I remind myself why I am doing this and what will happen if I don't-besides it will only take a few minutes right? I am realizing that losing weight is really all about each choice that we make-just be certain to make the right choice! We can do this! emoticon
