Maggie- I am right there with you. That newness has worn off, counting gets monotonous and annoying. You have to plan so far ahead so you can make sure you can fit everything in. It happens everytime to me.
But this time is different! We're here, we have each other. I'm reaching out and pulling you back. And I am kicking you in the can...
Don't think about the pounds, don't think about the ones you've lost or the ones you need to lose. Just focus on today. Challenge yourself to follow your points today. Maybe try the core program for a day. I know they say to do it for a full week, but maybe sometimes we have to bend the rules to fit our life. If you like it try it another day. Just to see if it will help shake things up enough for you. Try a new recipe something fun to help take the drudgery out of calculating. This website has some great stuff with points already done for you! Cooking something new always makes me feel refreshed and challenged. Maybe switch up your exercise. Once you get rolling again you can focus on reaching a new mini goal.
You need to push past this point. Go back and read what you wrote about that dreaded 6 week mark. We'll show up at your house and drag you back. You've inspired all of us. I feel accountability as I never have before. I count on you guys.
You can do this!!! We all get in a funk. The trick is not to quit or cheat. We need to keep plugging away. A live it to be it sort of mentality. In a few days or even weeks your mood will shift and it will feel better. You have alot going on and maybe it's not about the weight or the weightloss it's everything else. Just keep plugging away. It will get better!!!
Sorry I can't think of hillariously funny and threatening advice to keepyou on track. All I can offer is my honest friendship and thoughts.
Well I am going to do my exercise right now! I ended up cleaning this morning, fighting with Dh about the car registration, then cleaning some more. I have to finish cleaning upstairs, I got derailed with painting. I am so close to having the hall, junk room and hall closet clean! Then onto my room and my daughter's room. I need to get it all done before the 28th. eally lifting 50 pound or more boxes and hauling stuff like bed frames aorund should count as exercise. But i am gonna do some purposful movment.
Have a great day all
