I am sure you learned enough 2 yrs ago to reach your goals again and save money.  So it may boil down to motivation.  I read this Zig Ziglar quote on facebook today and decided I would use it to remind myself why this weight loss journey is so important to me AND why motivating myself daily Is pivotal to reaching my goals.

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”

Smile  Be encouraged you can do it for your health and for your future babies!!!

@mimi123:  I am so sorry. I know how hard it is to get lectured about weight and fertility. Doctors have to do it, but know that there is way more to having a healthy baby than being a size 6.

You can’t change the past, but you can use what you have learned to go forward. For me, what works is keeping the scale in the closet, not tracking calories, and listening to my body. I run and do body pump (a weights class) and then fuel my body with what I am craving. Today I was craving salt, so we got chinese. We just ordered non-fried versions with lots of veggies and brown rice. I fed my craving so I wouldn’t go crazy, but I didn’t go overboard. Good luck!

I sympathize so much.  I’m not TTC but I have PCOS and losing weight is the bane of my existence.  I am terrified that I will not be able to lose any more weight before my wedding and I’ll hate all my pics because of how fat I look 🙁

  Awww! I am in a similar boat. I lost 35lbs on Weight Watchers about 4 years ago…and I put it all back on about a year ago…and it’s still here (there’s actually about 6 more lbs than the first time). When I realized this, I was beating myself up. I’m still beating myself up, looking at our wedding photos (which…I really need to let go of this…what’s done is done).

  I, too, lost mine on Weight Watchers, and I am right there with you on the tracking. It is a pain, especially when you’re at a party and you have no clue how to calculate how much buffalo chicken dip is worth (this was my weekend frustration).

  I did end up going back to Weight Watchers. Darling Husband and I would like to TTC beginning in May, and me carrying this extra weight isn’t going to help. I feel like it’s too hard, too tough, I don’t want to do it until I eat one meal that is fairly balanced. I realize that I do feel much better after it, and that is a little bit motivating.

  I do love what my meeting leader told me when I rejoined…I don’t have to see that number on the scale again. The hard part for me is that I want it all to fall off right away. Sadly, that’s not how it’s going to work, but seeing changes each week do add up.

  I wish I had better advice, but I just wanted to say that I’m right there with you.
