I have posted on 3Fat Chicks so many times with the intention of focusing and losing the weight that I want/need. My modivation seems to last about a week and then I just dive right back into being unmodivated. I know I can do this!! I have seen it on this site before. Women with more weight to lose just buckle down and get it done. I look at the before and afters and am amazed and think, "I can do this".
Two years ago my husband, kids and I moved 250 miles away from our family and friend and bought a business. The business is doing amazingly well and is such a blessing. However, my weight has been the casualty of this move. Before we moved I had a tredmill and used it at least 3 times a week. I was a stay-at-home mom so finding time to workout was a bit easier. Then we moved. I had to sell my treadmill because we had no room in the new house (my husband tried very hard to find room for it but we just couldn't). Both our kids were in school full time so I started working part-time at the business. I was also trying to get used to this new lifestyle (I do not do very good with busy.) All of these are excuses, I realize that.
We recently moved to a new house that now has room for a piece of equipment so we bought an eliptical. After the first of the year I also dusted off my old P90 DVD's and have been doing those at lease twice a week. I am very excited to get started again but I am also scared! I am scared that next week this post will mean nothing to me and everything will start accumulating dust again.
How do you stay modivated? I look at pics of thin people or people who have met their goals and get very inspired but if they are not out where I can see them I just stop looking them up. I don't want to put them up in my house because I don't want to explain to my girls that I think I am fat. I tell them that I need to excercise to be healthy so I can keep up with them. My mom always complained about being fat and pointed out poeple who were thinner than her when I was growing up. I really think that has given me major issued about my body and has not allowed me to love what I have. I do not want to do that to my girls!
