I have hit that point in my weight loss journey where I am officially out of the newbie excitement stage. Ok ok, so I have been there since about Christmas. Now I will proceed by giving you a bunch of excesses...winter hit full swing and I have been to cold to move, or I have been so busy with school and work to have the energy for anything else. My knee hurts when I bend it at the wrong angle so I shouldn't walk at all, the couch told me so.
Chocolate is a super food as long as it's dark chocolate.
So many excuses so little time to use them all. I am even a lucky girl with P90x videos and an elliptical in my living room. Still Have not yet hit the 90lb mark. So if you went to BOOBs 2011 I still look the same.

For those of you who are farther along in your journey than I am. How do you keep up the motivation? Getting back into running is the most daunting task in my mind right now (saying a lot since I am prepping for a cross-country move).

I am thinking of moving back to no scale months again just to up the motivation not to see a higher number at the end of the month.


  1. I can't help in the motivation dept right now but I noticed you have lost more than half of your weight! That's awesome.

  2. I psych myself up every week then proceed to fall off the wagon by Saturday. Lather, rinse, repeat! :) I honestly don't know how people keep it up!

  3. Motivation comes and goes. I believe that it is pretty normal. I know it has sure been my experience.

    I think what is important is to have a routine that you can stick to even when your motivation isn't strong. It sounds like running is hard for you to do when you aren't feeling up to it or you're not motivated. What about an activity like walking? I try to keep my normal routine pretty similar to my "kicking ass" routine - if that makes any sense.

  4. I agree with Amanda. The key is to find an activity that you don't dread and go from there. For me, a physical challenge usually helps. But I've been stuck at about 160 for months so I'm not much help.
