"Seeing" things a little differently
How do I stay motivated? How do I continue to maintain my weight loss without gaining everything back?
Over the last 14 months, I have lost approximately 47 pounds! I am ecstatic over it and I feel fantastic! I even participated in a 4.5 mile obstacle course called the barbarian challenge. (you can read more about that here) http://wp.me/p2dM7J-nx
My initial motivation was to lose the weight for my daughter’s wedding which is in six short weeks. It’s a beach wedding and I just wanted to look “good.” I accomplished my goal of losing the weight and I accomplished the challenge of the obstacle course.
The last two weeks I’ve found no energy to run or even exercise for that matter. I’m beginning to gain my appetite back and I am hungry all day!
The scales say I haven’t gained anything back yet, but I can feel it creeping up behind me like a criminal that will rob me of feeling and looking good.
I need ideas, I know what I need to do, I NEED to get up off my butt and move. I know how to do it because I’ve done it for a year, but I just can’t seem to do it right now.
So…. I am asking for your advice. What can I do to get re-motivated? How do I turn down that piece of pie when I am craving for it? How do I make myself go to the gym when I have countless other things to do every single day?
Is this what we call a slump?
