Coming Apart at the Seams

Why is it so hard to blog about this weight loss stuff when you really need it the most? I'm slacking something terrible and I just can't get it together. This is what I get for all my arrogance a couple of months ago when I felt like I could do no wrong on the weight loss front. It always catches up with me!

Back to the same old problems. Not entirely of course, but the cracks are really showing. I'm back to having a few drinks on the weekend nights and a drink a night or two during the week. I'm still fine when I'm at work, but the weekends are just getting worse and worse. It's nothing horrible, but when I consider that I want to lose another 12lbs (okay, okay it's like 15 since I stepped on the scale this morning) it's just not going to work! And I'm so close! I can totally do this. But I think I'm feeling burned out. Just like everyone else in Blogland I've been coming down with something, which doesn't really help. It's pretty mild, but even that makes you tired and unmotivated.

I got an email from my trainer checking in with me and I'm considering going back to working with her again soon. I just feel like I'm using her as a crutch a little bit and I want to be sure it's something I can do on my own. I just really have to buckle down and focus on doing what I know will work. It just feels so hard right now!


  1. hang in there...cut out the drinks during the week. You can do this. I understand demotivation. I am currently excessively demotivated...on the upside...without a car, I could be walking mre.
    (insert scream here) I hear you, I feel you.

  2. I am bored with it too, and I have (at least) 25 lbs more to go.

  3. I feel like I'm in a rut more often than I usually admit - I'd say once a week I think about how easy it would be to skip a workout. I agree with Christine, cutting out the drinks during the week might help - I don't like to drink my calories, but every now and then it's good to be social, so even just cutting down the number of drinks or making different drink choices might help.
