I'M BACK!! after two pregnancies & 1 baby.... Let The Journey Begin!! The drive is there but the motivation is not... (OH IT'S ON & ITS THERE NOW!!) I didnt really get a chance to "enjoy" my weight loss before... there isn`t a lot anyone can tell me on how to do it... cause I've pretty much read a lot about eating right and weight loss.... It`s hard for me cause although I get the emotional support from my husband the physical support isn`t there... as in he still eats like crap... and I don't really have any friends that are willing to work out with me... the promises are there but they are not... I knew something needed to change and so I started reading the self help motivation books to gain a healthier attitude and be more happy, then I got a tread mill and began running on that... and I read in a book once it said on those low energy days to promise yourself to do ONLY your cardio warm up and then you can quite... cause at least its a little bit of exercise... but once I`m on it it's never really only 20 minutes... I always want more... and in the event that I want something I know I shouldn`t be eating (which is still quite often) I do a bit of exercise in place of that and it really helps with my cravings..... because I do home care in group homes its a "home-like`` atmosphere and I really want to eat when I get bored.... so I started doing exercises at work as well.... because all a husband usually says is `good job hun, I know you can do it, you can do anything you put your mind to`` its hard to stay motivated because that's all they are programmed to say... a self motivating help book of any kind is always full of positive energy and I want to work out and change after....

Well... good luck on your journey... I know you can do it!!

    hey.... well... IM BACK!!! i didnt fall of the earth!! or off track!! i got pregnant in 2011.. then miscarried and got on track where i lost a lot of weight... got down to 170lbs... then i pregnant again 7 months later and now i have a happy healthy baby boy... and i was still very active during my pregnancy... i didnt do anything during the 1st trimester as i was afraid i would "shake my baby out" due to the first loss... but i was running right up to the end of my pregnancy... the day before my son was born :) (i know im not suppose to... but yeah) it was a great pregnancy... and im now on track again to lost all my weight or almost all the the weight by July 1, 2013.... its gonna be a challenge... but i can do it!! :) i lost 20lbs since November and thats without even trying... not even this website think i can do it :)... they think October will be my earliest date to get to my goal weight... well... i will have to prove everybody wrong!! :) im getting my eating habits all under control & cutting out the junk food & sugary drinks, pop & energy drinks.... i now have the Insanity Workout set, Brazil Butt Lift set, Zumba, & Pilates weight loss (for beginners) and i have done it twice so far this week.... and i have a "home gym" set up (not that im ever home) but i have a small stair climber that i can carry with me everywhere... when my son was 5 months old he weighed 20lbs.... and i went to Toronto & ran 5000 stairs with him attached to my chest... the only reason i stopped is cuz my hip felt like it was gonna pop out... thats more stairs then the CN Tower... ALL the way to the very top & back down!! :) i was to the point where i could run a half marathon (22.1km) and well... now im on the way now... im gonna melt this fat like ice cream on a hot day!! :) Let the journey begin!!! again!! lol
