How Low Can You Go


>> Tuesday, October 30, 2012

     I really do not know what I am doing.  I am so lost with my weight loss  weight.  I am trying to get the motivation that I once possessed and get back to some sort of normal but, it is not working.  I am trying to eat better and cut back on the crap.  I am going to the gym and trying to make an effort, but honestly my heart is not in it.
     I am going to be heading to hot yoga again for the 30 Day Challenge or the month of November.  I did it last year and it was really great.  I am hoping that this will give me some sort of motivation.

just wondering...does counting calories work for you? Sometimes just doing that for a little bit will kickstart better eating. I use loseit on my ipod and some people use myfitnesspal.

Anyway, best of luck. Can i recommend a book by Jason Vale.... I think it's called "fit for life". He pushes raw foodism pretty hard but beneath that there way he breaks down food was helpful to me.

Keep blogging though. Don't give it up.

Hey lady!!


Hugs! I know the struggle!
I've been there!
I'm still losing weight everyday.
It helps to remember why you started the journey in the first place! FOR YOU!!!

As I say its not usually what you eat, but how you eat it!

Its unrealistic to not enjoy what you eat, but the way you prepare, the serving size, and the miscalculations the technical stuff is what it boils down to!!


We are here following and supporting you!

*le sigh* i am soo there with you! I had a goal to lose 35 lbs along with my mom. She hit her goal and i couldn't get past my hump at 26 lbs weightless...and now i am 6 lbs away from gaining it all back and spinning out of control with my eating. Just lack brief in myself more so than motivation. Im back at square one as if i've never done this before and don't know what to do! But i believe you are going about this correctly! Taking action even if your heart's not in it. Me im still making excuses. Tryin to get my head in the game. I think i'll follow suit and just do some activity tomorrow in hopes that it sets the standard for the rest of my week.

Aww! I am sad to hear you are in a funk! Well I know how it feels, and as you already know, stressing and worrying is not good when trying to lose weight.

Take a break if you need to and come back to it. I know you will fall back in love with the workouts!

I hope all goes well with your surgery! Stay encouraged, you have come to far to turn back!

Little things make all the difference. Take pride in the things you're doing right and find the happy-momentum in that. Also, I honestly believe it's all about finding the things that work for YOU. If the gym isn't doing it for ya as far as motivation, there are other alternatives you can explore.

Please don't hold anything I say here against me or take it personal. I'm a sagittarian and that's one of my biggest downfall, speaking the truth out of terms. With that said, I have your blod in reader because I liked your positive energy, which you still have. We all go through ups and down, shit happens daily and it happens to all of us. I had a bread down couple days ago but I choose to see it as a break through. It made me realize that my biggest problem is me. That I am a victim of myself. Sometimes we are too hard on ourselves, we judge ourselves harsher than others judge us. To keep from writing a book I will say this to you. it is perfectly fine to have the emotions you have when you are faced with obstacles. But don't wallow in them for a minute more than they deserve. You are beautiful even if your apartment is not, and what ever medical issues you have God put it before you, so he will walk you through it. Eating and living a healthy life should come natural to you at this point. Take your focus off your weight and breaking this mark or that mark and just live. Live like you know how to. How you are eating is a direct result of how you are feeling. Stress, depression, funk whatever influence our eating practices in negative ways. Deal with the emotional and I am telling you, everything else will fall in place. You should also consider doing a cleanse, a mental and physical cleanse along with your yoga. You start with positive thoughts, prayer and a 6 day cleanse. No sugar, no gluten, no wheat, meats, eggs or dairy products. Fresh fruits, vegetables, protein smoothies, natural juices etc. The saying when life give you lemons make lemonade is true. Sorry for my book. Hope I helped or at least inspired a little bit. Good luck and God Bless.

Hello beautiful lady!

I so concurr with Michelle. Take the focus off losing weight and put your focus on adopting a healthy lifestyle and how to make your body work at its peak. I struggle with bad iron defeciency and that makes me lethargic. I have since been changing my diet to increase my energy levels and weightloss (particularly inches) happens organically.

Also, when last did you try something new with your exercise routine? I know you love running - how about trying trail running or hiking? Maybe take up a water sport or dancing lessons. Your body, sometimes, becomes immune to certain exercises after a period of time.

I think if you start something new and exciting your motivation will also come back automatically.

All the best!! Keep up the good work!
