You need to rest your goal. Why did you begin this journey? Something must of told you that enough is enough! Go back to that day and refocus.....get that reason why in front of you and go after it!

That is amazing! But, don't give up now!!! See what kind you can achieve in just another 30 days! Take it one workout at a time, and get into the mindset of "I want to do this", NOT "I have to do this". When you complete the program you will be SO proud of yourself! I am sending you a buddy request emoticon

Hey NajeraKid - Just keep digging deeper! If you feel good about how much weight you've already lost, think how much better you'll feel after month 2! Continuing on a healthy, consistent regimen will definitely benefit you in the long run. What keeps me motivated is seeing how my list of medications has come down over the course of the last two years of consistently staying active and eating a balanced diet. If you need more help with staying on track, I have a private Facebook accountability group. In the group we all share our ups and downs with our diet and fitness. Its hard doing it alone. With a group its really helpful. Let me know if you want to be added emoticon

1 Get a workout buddy who will partner with you and keep you on track. This can be done online or, if you know someone who lives in close proximity to you, engage them to work out with you.

2. SCHEDULE it on your calendar. Make it your TOP PRIORITY. Try to work out at the same time each day. Everyone is different - I love working out in the morning because it gives me an energy high for the rest of the day. But some people do better working out mid day, etc

3. WRITE down WHY you started this - was it go look better, feel better, get healthier? POST the WHY on a mirror that you look at daily.

4. WRITE down HOW GOOD you feel after you work out and post it by your WHY list.

5. Take photos along your journey to remind yourself of the progress you're making!

6. Set REALISTIC mini-goals. This does not have to be measured in pounds or inches lost. It can be measured in number of hours of workouts per week. Get creative with this.

7. TREAT yourself to something new - NO, NOT FOOD. A new pair of pants, new shirt, a good book.

8. TURN OFF the TV! Most of what's on is full of garbage the half the commercials are junk food. Find other means of entertainment.

9. Learn something new - take up dancing, painting, whatever.

10. When frustration or temptation set in, go for a walk. Doesn't need to be a long walk, just get out and move.

DON'T give up! Good luck. My best to you!!!

All the above are great suggestions and try all of them! Whatever works - DO IT! Another idea, change programs, switch things up and maybe get excited about doing something different and new.

Good luck and congratulations on the progress and hard work you put into your success. Another thing to think about - you've put a lot of time, energy and sacrifice into getting where you are now. Dont waste it. Dont stop - it's too hard to get yourself moving again!

Keep up the great work ! Oh - another idea I just thought of that I did when I started. Reward yourself with something you like. When I finished the first month of P90X I bought myself a book I wanted, after the second month I needed some new workout clothes, so I got new shorts and a new top after the third month (since my goal was to finish the program - we booked a trip to Disney world!)

Your rewards can be big or small - but not food!
