We can help each other out! I wish you lived a tad closer, lol. I need someone to do doggy events with too haha.

But I hear you. I majorly lack the motivation. I don't even mind being active and doing things so much but it's mostly food. I just don't like most healthy foods and I LOVE junk food and it's soo hard for me to be around it, living with others, and NOT eat it.

But I've gotten better and I proved to myself last year that I CAN do it and have the willpower so I know I can. I just ordered those green pill coffee bean I asked about in another thread, so hopefully they can get here soon, and MAYBE aid me so I can see small results and get me motivated. I really need to hop back on the wagon and just... get to it. I probably need to lose 50lbs too but I'm setting my goal at 30lbs.

I know how you feel! I am dying to lose at least 20 lbs, but the last couple of days I've completely lacked ANY motivation for exercise, and my eating schedule has been downright crazy (although not altogether unhealthy food choice wise).

The ONLY saving grace on my side is that I am forced to walk at least 4 miles daily due to my living situation and lack of transportation. And even then, the weight is not coming off.

Several years ago, I lost 20 lbs over a span of several months by eating well, and then gained it all back. Then I got a dog and lost it all again, and those pounds stayed away, thank goodness. I know I just need to find the motivation to really start working out, and of course, eating on time and eating well... but it's just not happening. I get short bursts of motivation, and that's it.

I'm going to Zumba classes to help me lose weight. It's really fun and classes shouldn't cost much for you. You can also buy the DVDs and do it at home if money is an issue. I LOVE it.

I think a class setting would be good for you, the girls in my class are really nice and so is my instructor.

You may not lose weight right away with it, but it really makes you feel good about yourself I promise. It's intense cardio, so it's not easy to follow at first but you get better at it.

You can find a class in your area here:

The DVDs are a bit pricey but a class for you shouldn't cost too much.

I want to be on Dixie's PM list as well! LOL PLEASE!


Amber, if we lived closer, you & I would be going walking everyday. I have motivation for like 3 or 4 days at a time then won't go walking for a few days then do it for a few days, etc etc. Its a cycle. Eating wise, I've lost 6 lbs since Tuesday. I don't have an appetite lately.

I wish you luck, Amber! If you need a motivation speaker, you have my number. <3

I want a PM! lol!

After I hit the 40lb mark I hit a complete standstill ugh I hate that. I'm willing to do something more drastic but I'm afraid to cut back much more and put myself in starvation mode lol. I keep thinking when the pools open I'll lose some more, but at the same time I'd love to get more off before I am in a bathing suit! But I've been really worn out the past two weeks
