Kick My Pants!

I've been stalled out on my losing for a couple weeks.  Only losing about a pound a week.  I haven't been exercising nearly as much as I should.  I've had some added stress for the last few weeks as well.  At one point I was losing rather quickly and I had been very motivated.  I had set a goal for myself to lose 75 lbs by Thanksgiving (my birthday).  Well needless to say
, that goal seems a bit far fetched at the moment.  I can't seem to hit the 40 pound mark.  I've seen it a couple times, but have always managed to bounce back above it by week's end.  I think at the rate I'm going I'd be happy to get 50 lbs down by then.  

So I find myself asking, where the hell did my motivation go?  I think the same place that it went in past attempts to lose weight.  Life catches up with you and you find your focus moves elsewhere.  I have a pretty active life.  NYC forces you to be busy by default I think.  I find myself trying to cram even the simplest things into my days, like laundry or washing the dishes (not to mention actual cleaning, or anything else fun that I could possible want to do).  I guess it's all about priority.  If you want something badly enough, you'll make the time to do it.  So I need to recenter myself and make time to plan my eating and exercise.  I was reading someone elses blog yesterday and I can't recall who's at the moment (I follow a TON of them).  Well what she wrote was a list of things to do to get back on the wagon.  It was really helpful to read those things and acknowledge that at one point I was doing all those things in her list, and I was losing like a mofo!  Now...  eh... not so much.  So I guess I need a little kick in the pants.  Feel free to kick away.  It'll hurt for a  moment but I'll appreciate the sting when I see those numbers coming down.


  1. You already know what you're doing (or NOT doing), so jump back on the wagon, girly!

  2. Yeah I think it's good to re-focus and remember all the reasons why we want to lose weight and then get back on the wagon. You'll do great!
