Colt and I are taking part in another weight loss challenge this year, with the same friends as last year plus some new ones. While it's great that we're all focusing in on getting healthier again, something's not quite clicking for me.
I felt so accomplished after last year's 30(ish) pound loss. I was eating better, my love/hate relationship with Jillian Michaels was actually accomplishing something ... and then I stopped working out regularly and reacquainted myself with not-so-great-for-me foods. Quicker than I would have liked, I gained 10 lbs back.
Last year was a struggle, but I feel like I accomplished more more quickly. This time around, I've been waffling between 1-2 pounds of loss and gain since we started. Could I be eating better? Yes. Could I be exercising more? Yes. But I'm trying. I just feel unmotivated to really dig in to the healthier lifestyle. It's an utterly frustrating cycle of frustration.
I need to find something to motivate myself outside of the fact that I want to feel better—I'm my own worst enemy. What kinds of things do you do to motivate yourself? It doesn't have to be for weight loss, it could be for anything. I'm just looking for ideas to try that might help me find what I'm currently missing.
