Go you for working out so hard! And it’s good to feel good about yourself-that is the most important thing! I was in the military for 7 years and was forced to do the boring stuff-running, pushups, situps, blagh. Once I got out 2 years ago, I knew what I liked to do for working out, and that is dancing!! So we got a Wii and I got Just Dance 3! I love it so much because it is such a release, and I have gotten many comments about how I have lost weight, so I’m feeling good and I’m happy too! I think you have to find something you love to do, and something where you don’t feel like you’re working out. πŸ™‚

Honestly, 1,200-1,500 calories for as much as you’re working out likely isn’t enough. I would try bumping up your intake. Also, on your rest day, take that time to actually rest. Changes happen when your body has a chance to recover. It sounds like you’re doing great, though. πŸ™‚

Make sure you have a goal in mind, like an upcoming vacation or a friend’s wedding. When I know there is something I have to look good for it keeps me on track. Even if it’s something that is far out, think about how good you will look in that tight dress or cinched-waiste shirt. I find myself less motivated when I’m not working toward something.

I sign myself up for races every other month. Since I don’t want to be the slowest one, that usually helps.
