Motivation Lost

Friday, October 26, 2012

Still struggling to get my motivation back. I bought the 3 months of sparkcoach hoping it would help motivate me to get back to my diet and exercise program. I am only a few days in, and so far haven't been doing so great. Of course I have been sick and that never bodes well for any workout program ever! However, I just don't have the drive so far. I have been reading motivational stories, trying to check in everyday, and still no progress. Really don't wanna gain this weight back, but I feel like crap an just wanna eat comfort food and lay in bed! Grrr!!!
If anyone has any suggestions, please, I'll be happy to hear them!

    I had the same problem. What I did to get myself motivated again was to go back to day 1 and read all of my own blogs. This helped me in showing me what was important to me and how far I have came in my journey.

    On the FB group, you asked us to call you out when you started to slip. Let's get on this, girl! Remember--no excuses b/c you now have a high-speed internet connection? emoticon

    I've been struggling as of late as well, but every morning I wake up and think "today's a new day". You have a fresh chance at making positive choices. emoticon

    just try to keep focus on what it is you want more!

    i often fall for the comfort foods, too but i'm usually not comforted by them at all. unless i keep in control...making smart choices, watching my portions and not over indulging.

    i, too, signed up for sparkcoach in the hopes of recommitting. it is a day to day process and sometimes meal to meal! i wish you the best!

    hang in there! stay strong!

    Don't beat yourself up over this. We all go through periods of low motivation. Hey,life gets in the way but over time you will make healthy living a permanent part of your life. The main thing is you are very aware of your desires, but are others in your life feeling the same way? Do they understand your goals and feelings about this? My recent success can be attributed to having my husband on board with me. He and I are on the same page when it comes to healthy eating and being active. He helps me more when it comes to getting out there and doing something and I help him with the eating part. Hopefully you have someone very close to you who can help you with your goals, even if it is just listening to and encouraging you. You won't gain the weight back if you really don't want to, it just might be easier to do when you let others know your desires!
