Lots to Lose - Feb! - Page 7

post #121 of 142

WW never worked for me. I really stuck to it too but it never seemed to matter.

post #122 of 142

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 finished the Couch to 5K today - a 5k in 30 minutes smile.gif

I also joined SparkPeople. I haven't been so great at keeping up with logging food and exercise, so hopefully a new site will help. Starting the Bridge to 10k on Friday...

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. smile.gif

I did really well the first few days and then failed the last few but I did work out a few days. My hardest battle is myself here.

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.

Totally failing at my raw attempt. I'm gonna nix it for now and just stick with GFCF. I'm under so much stress right now greensad.gif

just_lily - the gym is around the corner from my house and in the spring I will run outside. I literally go whenever I can. Whenever I have DH to watch the kids or even sometimes at 5am before everyone gets up. Other than Saturdays when I work 10-10 and DH is gone at 7:30, I can usually find time. I have made it a priority just as I have made meal planning and actually cooking those meals a priority. It's best to do it now and make it habit before I have to start back up with school. Also, I love.gif running.

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?

post #136 of 142

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. 

post #137 of 142

i struggle with motivation too... i just wish this was all *easier* and *faster* !!  i just don't feel like exercising or eating right sometimes, but when i make good choices, i feel good about it.  i just gotta focus on one decision at a time, and 'fake it until you make it'.

post #138 of 142

I have been awol from here for several weeks.  I wasn't losing, and lost motivation and confidence that I could lose.


At any rate, I am dipping a toe back in, because as we all know if I do not get on the wagon again I definitely will not lose the weight I want to.



post #139 of 142

My motivation is that I want to raise my kids. 


I don't want them to be left without a mom because of pure laziness or gluttony.  A cookie isn't worth it in that light...

post #140 of 142
I think motivation is all about goals. Setting my 3 pound a week goal, my running goals, and my calorie goals have all helped me to stay motivated. Seeing those goals result in weight loss makes me realize that I can do this. Once the ball starts rolling, I think all is well. It's getting up to threshold that is the challenge.
