Time for a Challenge

For a very long time now I have been extremely frustrated with my weight and the way I look these days. A couple of times I have attempted to do something about it by either going on a diet or pretending to start an exercise program. It is hard and to be honest I was never really willing to put in the necessary effort. I have finally gotten to the point now where I am serious about this. If you are not truly motivated to do something you will never be successful. I have given this a lot of thought over the last week. I recognize my previous downfalls and wanted to make sure I was truly ready to give this another shot. It hurts my self esteem even more when I start something like this and fail at it. It makes getting started again that much more difficult. I get on a vicious cycle and finding the motivation seems almost impossible. I was not willing to start it this time unless I dug down deep and found that motivation to keep it going longer than a few days. I think I found it and I am willing to give it a shot. Tomorrow morning seemed like a good day to start. I will fire up my new 30 EA Active challenge. I have my meal plan set. Working now on purging the house of all the junk food. Going to hit the store tomorrow to bring home some healthy food options.

Anyone interested in partnering up with me? We could compare notes and try and keep each other on track. I will have weekly updates here and we will see how it all goes. Wish me luck!

What a total coincidence. I still have all of my "baby weight," and the baby's 2!!!! I have attempted to start an exercise program a couple of times, but like you said, my motivation was off, plus I've never been big, so I just kept thinking in the back of my mind that this weight was going to leave, lol. I guess my age has something to do with it not going anywhere this time. I have four children, and it was easy with the others... not so this time.

In any case, I'd love to partner with you, if the offer is still open, because tomorrow is the day I too decided had to be THE day. Shoot me over an e-mail and let me know how you'd like to do this. I look forward to having someone to share the weight goal with!!! We can do this!!!!!!!!!!!!
