Hi, my name is Mel and I have lost my motivation. I have been doing cs for the past 11 weeks with a total of 8.3kg lost. Truth be told I have really been doing cs for 6 weeks, the other 5 I was just doing it to varying degrees. I posted my latest not so upbeat message on the cs forum where some kind soul mentioned this forum as a general help for people trying to lose weight any way they choose.
So here I am. I am hoping to get my mojo back. I have made it under the 100kg mark and would like to keep going, but I am really struggling at the moment and giving into temptation constantly. My sister in law is getting married on 8 August, and I thought that would be good motivation for me to lose weight as the bridesmaid's dress I bought, whilst lovely was a size 22W (apparently the 'w' stands for 'wide', I prefer 'woman'!!
). I bought it before I lost weight, and now it is too big - yay - yet still that has not been enough to keep me motivated. My mother in law said (as she is going to take the dress in for me - hopefully!) it is lucky she hasn't run my dress in yet - I have to admit I have a history of yo yo dieting. Must admit that was a bit of a blow, yet STILL no motivation...
I posted earlier that I feel like the cartoon lady on the nicotine replacement ad with the little gremlins inside my head (:twisted:) trying to convince me to have that chocolate (while in the ad they want her to have a smoke) - thank god I don't smoke - lol! I have enough problems resisting food temptation!!
Anyway... that is my story so far. The way I feel at the moment the only thing that will help me lose weight is to sew my lips shut... but I am looking for a less painfull answer! lol!
