Monkeybabies - Hi! To answer your question, I was very motivated when I started. I had just been on a family vacation (Mom, brothers, in-laws, neices etc...) at an amusement park and I was barely fitting in the rides!
So it was a week after we came home that I decided the weight needed to go. My biggest help? My husband! He's been doing it with me and has lost at least 50 - 60 lbs. himself! But now we're both having a hard time getting back on it full time! I have faith in us though!
And the weight came off quite quickly I thought. I was so surprised! Now I just wish this last 30 pounds could come off as quick as the first 30!
Good luck to you just keep going and you can do it! If you slip don't give up!
