Default does anyone else need to recommit?

so after hitting my lowest of 148 (after 3 days of illness mind you, lol) ive been waffling. i keep thinking "close enough". ive been fluctuating 150-151. well this morning i was 152. i know that there isn't much difference between 151 and 152, but i decided that its time to completely recommit. after choosing my final goal as 145 i sort of slacked. im soooo close and i WILL lose these last 7 lbs!!

time to stop being halfway on board and just finish up!! so today, im changing my attitude and deciding to do my *absolute* best and no longer being committed only half heartedly!!

anyone else need to recommit attitude-wise?

No, but good for you!!! That's the way to get those last 7 lbs off! Do you have a plan? What does re-commit mean to you?

Get three days of good, clean eating under your belt and then you should be on your way!

Sorry, I was just pushing you to think. I know what it's like to say "I'm recommitting." And then tomorrow is another day just like today!

So will you be measuring everything? Tracking everything? What aren't you doing now that you are going to recommit to in order to get where you want to be?

Good for you! I encourage you to look at all the hard work you've done - Two years ago, I lost 80 lbs. I got lazy and didn't maintain - always using one excuse after another not to start again. Today I am starting again after gaining 60 lbs of that weight back.

I think back to all of the hard work, excercise, and effort I put iunto losing that weight and I am upset with myself for not caring enough to keep it off. You can do it! Just 7 more lbs to go!

I'm right there with you, needing to re-commit. For some reason, once I hit 30lbs lost, I got a little lazy and complacent. I am annoyed, and now I'm going to do something about it.

I have planned my exercise for today and ate a healthy breakfast. I plan to do the same for the rest of the day.

The good thing is, we're aware and undertaking steps to get rolling again. Good luck to you in those last 7lbs and good luck to myself for the next...7x23, ha.

Great post, Julia. I need to recommit. I have been stuck in the same place weight-wise for months. While I continue to get healthier (I am working out on a regular basis), I am not losing for a variety of reasons. I am switching up some things in my diet and exercise, but also mentally. I also need to finish what I started.

I am on my last 8 pounds and I'm petrified of succeeding. I never thought I'd get to this weight and now that I'm here, I'm thinking "Well what do I do now?"

I envision myself climbing a tall tree. As long as I don't look down, I'm okay. So I'm going to keep climbing with you all by my side.

We can do this.

I screwed up somehow, magically gaining weight without a change in my eating habbits or exercise habbits. I gained about 5 pounds from my starting weight after losing 15. I don't know whats up, but I need to keep losing.

August 14th, I leave for my families vacation to the beach and I NEED to lose weight before then. I desperately want to get out of the suit I'm in and be down to a smaller one if not a bikini.

I was told p90x was really great and I want to start it now, but I have no one to do it with unfortunately. I'm trying to start riding my stationary bike as much as possible and it's not really working. Any ideas?
