Today I'd like talk about an important topic to me: Weight loss.
It's no secret that a huge portion of my blog is about weight loss. You see this started last Feb when I decided that I wanted to go from 150 to 125 pounds. That's when it all went wrong.
This past year was my first attempt at going to a gym, changing my eating habits & really concentrating on dropping some weight. As you can see I've gained instead of losing. A whopping 25 pounds of weight gain! Now I'm not going to sit & lie saying I workout 5 days a week.. truth is I haven't been at all this week. Not once. Why? I'm so deflated by the fact that, I feel, I have worked to gain the weight instead of lose it.
My sweet husband keeps reminding me that 'fertility treatments pack on the pounds'. yes, that sweet man... but that doesn't mean that my inner fire ignited to keep going. No, not at all. I decided that I needed a week to really get back into gear. I'm frustrated.
I have, honestly, really considered going vegetarian for a couple of months. Maybe that is the ticket? Maybe kicking this coffee habit is what will help.. I mean I used to drink smoothies every am instead of a pot of coffee. All I do is put creamer in my coffee.. I'm stretching here people.
So I guess I need to start over & try really hard to stay focused & keep going... right? I mean I don't have another fertility round until Jan so I have plenty of time to really really focus to do this. sigh. How do you keep going after you hit the weight loss wall?? How do you get your motivation back?
