well it's not like i don't want to lose weight or anything.

my motivation is just really low right now.

my fiance has been complaining that i've been gettin worse in my sleep, that i'm snoring alot now and i'm more fiddgity in bed and when i was around 206 i wasnt that bad.

i find it hard to get motivation for myself and from my fiance and it's hard from you guys online snice i don't know anyone in person here.

i was feeling great when i lost some weight before, i had more engery and stuff but my motivation is just so shot i want to cry

Oh, Yunalee, I can just about hear the sadness in your post. This can be a really tough road, and although there are times where it's a bit easier, there are plenty of uphill climbs (sometimes it even seems like it's all uphill). Know that even though we may exist in the oblivion that is the internet, there are plenty of people here who feel for you and are fighting the same battle.

Well, you know I always have some advice for you, so here it is. Can you try to turn that frustration and self-hatred, both of which take SO much energy, into motivation? When I was starting and full of self-hatred, and was beyond angry at myself, I would stop my inner dialogue and tell myself, "Do you want to be fat? Do you want to feel this way? Do you like wasting this energy on making yourself feel worse? No? Then get over yourself and do something about it." I realize this may sound "harsh" to some, but I am very much a pragmatic and no-BS type of person, and I find the "stop and get over it" approach to be successful.

One other thing that can help is to remember what motivation is, and what it isn't. Motivation is finding a way to do something that we don't especially want to do at that moment (eg, exercising or eating a carrot instead of cake). Motivation is NOT necessarily wanting to exercise or eat right all the time, it's finding your way past obstacles (including the ones we create) and doing it anyway. Most of us don't need motivation to do the things we really want to. With that said, I know you really want to lose weight - but remember that it's all those little moments and little decisions that will get you to that goal. Even the strongest of us will struggle with those decisions (eg, carrot vs. cake) even though the carrot will get us to our goal and the cake (in excess) will not.

I hope that helps even a little bit. I'm so glad you are here and still checking in - you may not realize it, but that in itself is a huge accomplishment. Let us know how we can help.

I've seem to have slowed to a crawl in weight loss the last few weeks... But at least it's going in the right direction!

Default can I join?

I started my weight loss on August 21 and found this website and started keeping track of everything I ate. What an eyeopener. I started reading food labels so I could customize some foods and i just threw away some really high fat snack foods (that I loved). I was scared taht I might be pre-diabetic so my main motivation is to become healthier. Then my son got engaged and is getting married next June, so there's my deadline. I was weighing everyday and getting frustrated, so I started weighing only on Fridays. So here I am.

8/21/11 200 lbs.
9/21/11 192
10/21/11 186

I have used fitday since 2002 as a way to journal my weight loss and gains
There was not a forum so I am glad to see there is one now and I would like to do Friday weigh ins with you all.

Here is my story I was diagnoised with liver failure due to autoimmune disease related cirrohis in June. And will have to have a liver transplant in the future as liver that was destroyed is beyond repair,
Husband took me out to the ER and I was in a coma state for 5 days and within a week had 80 lbs of fluid build up within me. They drained the water off over the next month by doing several p-tap procedures. So now 3 1/2 months later I am 80 lbs (fluid build up) and 47 lbs lighter.

They have put me on a low-low sodium /low sugar/low fat/ veggie-dairy protein drink diet Hardest diet I have ever had to do but of course this is a lifestyle change and will have to be on it for life.

So now I must EAT to LIVE not LIVE to EAT.

I weigh 183.2 lbs as of this morning and want to get down to 140 lbs

Thanks for listening sorry for the ranting but would love to join in.

Good luck to everyone.

Hey guys it's that time of the week again. i feel alot better this week than the last.

I did end of joining herbal magic last friday, and it goes to show that i'm down 7 pounds in one week!

i'm starting my weight chart over from my heavy weight from last wekk so i can also keep track of my weight loss while on this program.

this program is mostly getting me to eat only healthy food (with a treat each day). and lower how much i eat, but with the big change from eattting mostly junk food to healthy food it feels like i'm eating alot of food still. but it's all good for me food.

i also have to eat 2 meal replacements each day but both the shake and bars are yummy enough they feel more like a treat.

the only thing is that this program isn't cheap but if i lose the weight and keep it off it'll be so worth it!

ps. i also know i lost alot of pounds to start off but i know it'll slow down to about 2 pounds a week (acording to the program)
