Lately, I have been so incredibly unmotivated to do anything to help my weight. I realize that I am gaining weight, but I can’t seem to do anything to fix it. It’s almost like I don’t care, and that I am happy where I am.
The thing is that I do care about my appearance and I have been feeling like a lump. I want to feel the way I did when I hit my goal weight 2 years ago. I want to have that feeling of “YES”! when I stick to my plan. But right now, I have no plan. I don’t belong to a gym. I don’t watch what I eat. I don’t exercise regularly.
I am comfortable in my own skin, but I don’t love the way I look. Clothes don’t fit me the way they used to. They huge and tug in all the wrong places. But I seem to be OK with that. I just don’t have the motivation anymore to change anything.
So, what do I do?
How do I get my motivation back?
I’m getting tired of feeling the way I do and I want to do something about it. I do. I just don’t enjoy working out and I really do hate dieting (don’t we all?). So what can I do that doesn’t really include a diet?
One thing that is on my list of To-do’s is join the gym at work. It’s not really convenient to get to, but it is on our campus and it’s so cheap. I don’t belong now because they closed it to renovate it. I think it should be opening up in late spring or summer, so I will get on that when it finally reopens. Our office is really striving toward a better lifestyle, so working out and eating healthier helps my insurance deducible. That is my incentive.
I will join the gym once it opens back up, but then what? I still am not sure I am going to be motivated enough to work out consistently. I don’t really understand it, but I want to want these things. I just don’t right now. It’s a constant struggle between eating something healthy and something oh-so-not-healthy. I usually choose the not-so-healthy version because – why not?
I need motivation to make this a complete lifestyle change (which it really should be).
Does anyone have tips for keeping your motivation or getting motivation back?
