Congrats!  You can keep it going!  I would suggest getting a workout buddy to go with you – that way you have someone there who’ll force you to get to the gym.  Or you can set yourself a reward – buy yourself a bag or pair of shoes if you reach losing 15 pounds.  Instead of saying that you want to lose 20-25 lbs, set in between goals to make it easier.  Once you reach 15 lbs (only 4 more to go!), you can reset it 20 lbs so that you only have 5 more to lose after that.  You can do it!

I find that whenever I hit that wall and find it hard to be motivated to work out, I’ll try something new.  Maybe check in your area for a fun fitness class like pilates, yoga or zumba.  It’s a great way to mix it up and get back into it!

I do P90X and am trying to lose 20lbs as well. In the beginning it will come off quicker and it gets slower with time, but you’re still working on a healthier you- let that be a little motivation. It’s what gets ME out of bed at 5am everyday!

Something I find quite effective with an exercise routine is to have a plan “b”.  It give you a bit of variety and it keeps you from falling off the wagon.  Have several different exercise options and make sure you do one of them each day… and mark it off on your calender – once you have done a few days in a row you will start to have a chain and you will be motivated by not wanting to break the chain.
