Hi,

Ive been working out for 3 weeks but Ive hit a wall. I just dont really want to do any working out. Im tired. Im actually exhausted. Idk what to do. Ive manged to get down from a size 18w to a size 10. I feel like Im quitting now. I dont want to but Im just so tired. What can I do meanwhile I get back on the wagon? Any suggestions? Im trying to get down to a size 4 in jeans. I dont want to gain anything back. i would actually like to continue my weightloss.

Yeah Im kinda doing that too for my family. I couldn't stand not being able to play with my three-year-old around the house when I was fat. I can do it better now. I just gotta think on that.

Maybe find some friends and workout with them. Remember, you earn your body. Running is awsome to for fat burn.

Look at it this way.  How would you feel about slipping back to a size 18 again?
Weight loss necessitates a lifestyle change and not just working out till the weight comes off.  Give up and you will likely slip back into bad habits and eat yourself back to square one.

Ugh. That's what Im afraid of. I don't want to go back there. Even my husband of 5 years told me that I looked fat for the first time ever. I mean I have been fat before with him but not to the extent of actually making him say something about it.

Is that therefore not motivation enough? Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind

Yeah I guess, if you know it comes out of love.

You may want to try something for some energy..i started losing weight 3 Years ago..i went from 227(size 16) pounds down 160 (size 9)..i moved last year to a different city & stop working out.im now bak to square 2..224 pounds and I've been very unhappy gaining bak this weight..Its hard to get movitated and stay motivated especially when I workout hard in eat right but when I get on the scale I've gained instead of losing.

Oh I know how that feels. Ive yo-yoed about 60lbs many times in my life. I just cant seem to keep it off. But I keep trying hoping that one day it will be the last time I have to lose that much weight. Keep going. Youll get there.

The reason you girls can't keep it off is that you with out to lose weight then think it ends there. You must lose your old habits at the same time to be successful you must make it a change in lifestyle. Consistency is key...

Yeah Alan, youre totally right. I do give up everything and go back to my old habits as soon as I lose the weight. I gotta change my lifestyle.
