Me - back when I started last summer, 235 pounds.
You know, I've kind of been struggling with motivation lately, kind of going "Meh" about calorie-counting and making the scales read lower. The holidays were a struggle, and I have a confession to make about how I felt about the session that ended on Dec. 17th. It was kind of a bratty attitude, considering the fact that my effort wasn't up to par with how I'd done in the past. But I was really annoyed that I lost the challenge by only 14 points. Granted, I hadn't tried very hard, so it wasn't like I worked my guts out or anything and "deserved" to win. But I'd come so close, and for a few hours thought I might actually get a pretty necklace. Yeah, I feel like a dork admitting how shallow I was. But I think that's the first time it became kind of concrete that winning sessions just wasn't a very strong motivator for me anymore. In the summer and early fall it was fun for me to squeeze every point possible out of our sessions. I just don't feel that way any more.
Looking at my myfooddiary.com weight chart, I think 11-8 was when I pretty much started coasting. Two-and-a-half months!! I've been wasting my time, or at least not making any progress. Sometimes taking a break can be a good thing, but I think that's probably been going on long enough.
A few of you suggested going back and looking at my original post and goals. And you know what? You were right. Because the idea of hitting summer still at my current weight would be really depressing, like tripping at the finish line. I would really like to be in the 160's by then, where I envisioned myself back when I started at the end of June last year. 20 pounds in five months should be totally doable. But I've got to find my own personal motivation again...
P.S. Sorry, I was supposed to post or comment about previous fav posts. But I started at my original post and got sidetracked. I'll go back and read older stuff tomorrow and comment.
