Default weight loss rollercoaster

iíve struggled with weight all my life, my highest weight was 217. i got down to 141 and then got back up to 191, then to 155 now im back at 181. i have zero motivation lately, i donít know whatís gotten into me. i work part-time, go to school full-time, and i have a boyfriend. he knows i want to lose weight, we both do. i just canít get motivated. i know i can do this, i just need some encouragement and ideas to make my life easier.

i downloaded the my fitness pal app, its easy for me to track what i eat on my phone. any other ideas would be great!

I went through the same thing recently, and I found looking at pictures of myself at lower weights really motivated me in a way that thinking about those times didn't. It's more than just seeing myself thin; it's about seeing how happy I was then.

I say, to stop the rollercoaster, as you move into smaller clothes, get rid of the bigger clothes. Make sure that you will feel if you are getting bigger and nip it in the butt before you need a larger jean size to cover your butt. I have a closet of clothes for many sizes of me and I think that is a problem. Now, as I get into my smaller clothes I am donating the larger ones. I never want to fit into them again. I guess it is just another way to tell without depending on the scale for life.

As for motivation, come here often, make goals, and know that it is about commitment. Just do it.
