I'm confessing my sins

I have no motivation.

I can't seem to shift it in gear.

Sometimes I eat like calories are a mythical concept set up by the man to control me and I'm rebelling.

I know what I need to do but I need a push.

I feel like the turtle getting ready to race the hare but I can't hear anyone say START!

I'm in a slump.

I feel sorry for myself.

I feel like when I lose weight, I'm going to look worse than before.

I feel like maybe I can't do it in the first place.

I'm really scared and I don't know why.

Code:
 you can do it!!!!
First, try and find some motivation. Is it to go shopping and fit into everything you put on? To be healthier? To live longer so you can live to be a grandparent? To look good in a bathing suit this summer? Whatever it is, figure it out, and write it down! I like to write a whole list of reasons, as many as I can think of, and keep it near by or post it on my fridge or something so I can read them whenever I'm lacking motivation.

Second, try to figure out what you're scared of. I know personally I blame my weight for a lot of things. But what if I lose the weight and I still don't get hit on at the bar? Or I still don't look hot in a bikini? Then I have nothing to blame but myself!

I don't know you personally, but this is what I do know about you--you are a worthy project, a woman who is valuable and deserves to be the healthiest version of herself. I know its frightening--I have lost about 40-45 pounds in the past 2 years and somedays, I feel very afraid that I'm not going to be able to keep it up and im just going to go back to where I was. All the motivation in the world won't work if you don't believe the truth about who you are--someone who is deserving and empowered sufficiently to change and direct her own reality. Good luck! We are here to support you
Awww, thanks so much, everyone! I am going to sit down and write these things out and get back on the bandwagon. I got a job today and I think this will help motivate me, too! I was feeling a bit bump on a log-ish, lol.

What I've been doing is carving out space for workout time. This may seem a bit overboard, but it's the only way I could "train myself" while doing it alone.

First I set my alarm clock at 5:00 am for a couple of weeks. I wouldnt actually get up and exercise, but just get used to feeling "up" at 5:00. Then I would exercise a bit at 5:30 or 6:00 and then go back to bed. Eventually I worked myself up to a full hour of exercise. I still stay in bed until about 5:30 but I'm not as reluctant to get up.

Then I started going out for a walk with the dogs immediately after getting home. I wont sit down, or check email - just change clothing quickly and get out the door fast. I know that once I plop on that couch, I'm not getting up. I use the walk to unwind from work instead of sitting and reading or going online.

Just a few things that's currently working for me.

When I was a kid and the weather was nice, my folks would take my brother and me out for a walk after dinner. It was really nice to take a stroll after cleaning up instead of being confined to the house.
just a thought.
