I do get the blahs every now and again but my comfort is the routine, for me it's not the motivation, that ebbs and flows too much. My routine drives me to do the same thing every day, it's not about what I want, it's about what I automatically do, plan meals, drink lots (of water), read posts here, work out, etc. The routine helps me through rough patches but I really like structure

Oh yes, I fight the blahs, even early in my plan and losing 2-3 pounds per week! But I look at this as something I have to do, there is no choice for me other than health anymore, and as long as I am losing something or holding steady I am in the right direction.

I agree with everyone else - commitment and mini goals are vital to me. Losing two pounds on a 120 pound journey is just a drop in the bucket, but losing that same weight on a 10 pound goal and I am moving tangibly closer to success. That helps me fight the blahs - realizing that I am plugging away and improving, and that the cumulative effect WILL show fairly soon, so long as I don't revert to my old ways
