WW never worked for me. I really stuck to it too but it never seemed to matter.
Lots to Lose - Feb! - Page 7
I still can't hear out my left ear but I did make it to the gym each day for the last three days. Sure I didn't get to exercise for very long because my littlest is still getting used to other people looking after him. But at least I have made it to the gyms 3 times this week!!!!-
I am so happy! Plus I got to study for my midterm which I will take later today while on the bike this morning.

I ran the first day of the Bridge to 10k program yesterday: walk 5 minutes, [(run 10 / walk 1) x 4], walk 5 minutes, for a total of 53 minutes and 4.78 miles. Then I biked for 30 minutes and 11.85 miles. I'm repeating the running 3 more times this week. I also have my meal plan for this week and have already done my grocery shopping.
Wow, congrats everyone! I will weigh in tonight after I put DD to bed (I use my Wii). I didn't have a bad week, but not a super one either. We will see where things end up.
Motivated Mama, how are you finding time to do that much exercise? That is one thing I am definitely struggling with. I can't really do anything when DD is awake (she is 2.5yo and crazy!) and there is only so much time after she goes to bed. I also have evening commitments at least three nights a week so that cuts into the time as well. DH is willing to watch her while I have some time to myself, but he works during the day. Plus I try to get some sewing and chores done after bedtime, as well as couple-time with DH. I just need to get my kid to sleep more or something!!
ETA: Yep, up half a pound this week. Grr. Ah well, back up on the horse. I did an hour of Wii Fit and am feeling better about things.

Can anyone help me with motivation?
I know I'm not happy at this weight and not healthy and I want DD to grow up healthy and for me to set a good example. I know I don't feel sexy or confident where I am at. It just doesn't seemto be enough to make me REALLY commit.
Any ideas to motivate me to kick my butt into shape here?
Here is a link to the Motivational section on Spark People. Maybe you can find something on there that helps you? http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivation.asp
Really though, I think your primary motivation has to come from within. Unfortunately. I struggle with this too.
