Okay! It is not working!!!!!

I have been doing so good for a while with eating and exercise. After 2 months. 2 MONTHS!!!! I lost only 5 pounds. 5 pounds!!!

Okay, for you people that are super positive I know this is good at least better than nothing. But the cupcakes and Diet Dr. Pepper are calling my name now. I mean I really thought I would have lost more.

Anyway, I know that I slacked a few times but I also did very good a lot of this time. I have to take a change of direction. I have regained 2 pounds after finding out. I am not for sure why I do that . I just quit for a week and half and binge. I eat because I am not losing weight. How weird.

So, I have to get back on the ball. I do have Thyroid Disease and this has made it so difficult for me to lose weight. I have been battling this for 2 years now.

Tomorrow, I am going to a nutritionist. I am really excited. Just to get some new motivation and see what she says. I am sure I have read and know most of what she will say. But sometimes hearing it direct from a person can really motivate you.

I have a lot of difficulty staying motivated. How do you stay motivated????

I know, it is so frustrating! in the past few months my weight has only fluctuated about 2-3 pounds. you just have to stick with it, or decide to shake things up and try something new. whatever you do, just dont give up!

I know how you feel! When you look at my weight/measurements they're going down so slowly it's almost like they aren't moving at all :(

I'd rather fight to be skinny then be depressed & fat. That's how I motivate myself. Seriously...

I think the only thing that has gotten me as far as I did was thinking about what happened when I didn't do this...I was 245lbs, fat and unhappy.

I know its hard, we all do. Keep smiling because your hard work pays off! You are doing way way better then those who don't even care enough to attempt to be healthy!

I know how you feel! My weight loss has really, really slowed down lately and it's so frustrating! I keep myself motivated by, instead of looking at how little I lost this past month, looking at how much I have lost overall (72 pounds).

It IS SO FRUSTRATING, I know!! But, it all adds up eventually, right? I often sabotage myself too when I don't like what I see on the scale (if you check out my blog, you'll notice I've been doing that and whining a lot lately -LOL), but I always come back to the same question "what other choice do I have?" when I feel unmotivated. I know I don't want to just eat whatever, feel like crap and gain a bunch of pounds back, so you just gotta keep on keeping on. Eventually, the body and the scale will be in synch!
