I have a 101 pounds to lose and I am having the hardest time sticking to a plan. I really want to do this but everything else seems to come first- two jobs, 3 kids, husband, mom, house cleaning, dinner, laundry, etc.... I am hoping that coming here each day will give me someone else to be accountable to and be motivated by.
One of the best things you can do is stop thinking of this as a "thing" you have to do and make it a part of YOUR LIFE. It's something you'll have to do forever, so it should be able to weave into the jobs, kid, husband, etc.
Prepare foods ahead of time, find short workouts you can do in between the kids' activities, etc. the best plan is the one you can stick to!
You've definitely got a lot on your plate, and carving out time just for you is hard at this stage of your life. But coming here is a good start. And you might try breaking down your weight loss into mini-goals -- there's a whole section on setting and meeting mini-goals. It definitely helps with keeping the journey in perspective and achievable goals. 101 pounds to lose sounds daunting. 5, 10, or even 20 pounds as a first goal sounds very possible. You can do this!
Mini Goals: Move Here Weight (2005): 344, Stop Smoking Weight (1997): 333, Mom Remarried (1990) 313, Twoderville: 299, Move to NC (1989): 280, Closer to 200 than 300: 249, More to Come....
