Just looking for tips for anyone who has lost weight, and managed to KEEP IT OFF!
Within the last 6 years, i have lost around 35 pounds. It was a pretty slow process that took many small changes. I have been up and down in weight for the last few years. my highest was close to 190, lowest was 150. 10 months ago I was back at 167, and right now I am around 154.
I have been so busy that i can barely find energy to make it to the gym or even do at home workouts. Lately I just want to sit around at home and relax. I have lost a lot of my muscle tone and just feel more flabby now a days. Also I have been finding it so easy to eat unhealthy when I know I need to limit myself.
i KNOW what i need to do to get into better shape, but for some reason i just never feel motivated to keep up with it.
any motivation tips that have helped you stay fit?

I only weigh myself once a week. I don’t judge myself by how much I weigh, but how healthy and strong I feel. Earlier this morning, I weighed myself and was like, “Bathroom scale’s lying. I feel like crap.” (Previously, I’ve lost 8 lbs. The scale shows that I’ve lost an additional 3 lbs after drinking water)
Switching up work-out routines usually helps keep me motivated; for example, learning a new sport. I use Runkeeper to track how many calories I burn. I take different running routes with our Scottish Terrier. (One stone killing two birds, figuratively speaking; she needs exercise too)
However, with running, you ought to find a pair of running shoes that work for you.
I’m always busy juggling with professional studies, work and life — making time for physical activities is very exhilarating — even if it’s just 10 to 15 minutes. I’d feel lethargic without it.
You can do it! Don’t worry about your weight. Worry about how strong you feel.
