I have zero motivation right now. It is like a Catch 22 - I don't lose weight because I eat too much and don't exercise nearly enough, I get depressed because I am not losing so I eat and do not have the motivation to exercise.
"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
I'm at a 1 or 2, but made myself go for my run anyway. I was up really early this morning and that is messing with my appetite, big time. I want to eat everything in the house right now. Tonight is about damage control for my calorie count!
Despite the fact that I told you my motivation was 5 this morning, I put in a full hour's water aerobics class! so I bumped up my 5 to a 10 by taking action! Just thought I'd let you know--sometimes we can move ourselves to do something we think we don't feel like doing! I'm so glad I did this after all. You can do something positive to move yourselves, too!

My motivation factor right now is about a 5. I had been 'good' all last week with my food tracking, staying within my calorie limit, and exercising EVERY day, yet I stepped on the scale this morning and my weight hasn't budged in 3 weeks!!!!!!! I'm feeling down about that, but my spouse says my shape looks better and that I am 'redistributing the furniture'. I have to galvanize my energy to do water aerobics this morning. I have a slight headache and I would really rather crawl back into bed and mope, but I've got to get moving if I'm going to win the battle of the bulge!
