I can’t seem to find any motivation to workout ever since our wedding. We ate SO much amazing food in Hawaii and my body is still used to eating much larger portions now. I’m already 5 lbs heavier than on my wedding day and I don’t want the weight gain to continue. Has anyone else dealt with this lack of motivation? I may need to sign up for a race to get me back on track.

I’m still trying to figure this out. I finally got sick of my clothes getting tighter though so I’m really trying.

omg, i got down to 128 lbs the day i left for Jamaica for my wedding and honeymoon. that was 2 pounds LESS than my goal! and like you, i ate a shit load on my honeymoon. 10 days later, i came back and weighed 133. which i thought i could be happy with. but now i am at 138 and its soooo freakin’ depressing. i just have no motivation as well. i really thought i would keep the weight off since i lost it the healthy way for the first time in my life. but really it was the wedding that was motivating me for a whole year! so ya, i need help too!

I gained 10 lbs 🙁 Thankfully I lost it all again! My motivation has been the warmer weather. I DO NOT want cellulite in my bikini and tank tops don’t look as nice with arm fat haha!
Hubs and I started a little competition to get us both back on track. We’re doing a weight loss challange against each other and have been coming up with some pretty interesting prizes. It’s just little things like “If I win you have to plan a romantic dinner for me including cleaning the house first, cooking dinner, and a foot/back massage.”
It has really worked. Because we are competing against one another it gives us a marker for success. I would feel terrible if Darling Husband lost 10 pounds and I gained weight because I would feel as if I was letting him down in a way. We’ve made each other accountable for our healthy lifestyle and it has paid off. Another thing we do is see who can run the longest or the fastest 🙂

@west.coast.blonde: DH and I just signed up for 2 triathlons so that’s going to be our new motivation. We definitely need something to keep us on track.
