Weight loss problems of starting over.

This does not get any easier the older I get.   Weight Watchers works for me, but I am having problems getting started again.  I can not seem to get motivated and get moving and get control of my eating. I think maybe it is the weather or the time of the year.  So I was wondering what motivates some of you bloggers and how you stick to your diet.   So how about some advice or some cussing would help.

I have to find something to do to keep me busy and keep me occupied.  I am going to do some zumba this afternoon.   Short post for now, will post more later.

Have a great weekend.

I think the motivation to really begin comes for me from a total lack of "I'm at the bottom of the barrel and I'm utterly sick of where I'm at" mentality. The motivation to continue......when I was losing my weight the first time (and I'm going to try it again this time) was to keep my end result foremost in my mind. I dreamed about my weight loss. I thought about it constantly. I imagined. I planned. It was there with me all the time. I surrounded myself with weight loss. I read blogs and articles. I wrote blog entries out the wazoo. I read articles and found facts. First and foremost.

Good luck!!!

My WW meeting place has been closed for the last 2 week. I can't wait for Monday to go weigh-in. My meeting keep me motivated. I have really slipped since I haven't had to go weigh-in. I set mini goals and don't look at the big picture. It's much easier to know that I only have 5 pounds to lose.

My motivation is one thing that you mentioned you were having trouble with which is the time of year. I'm always ready to hit it when a new year rolls around, it's like the time for a brand new start. My problem seems to being organized enough to keep it up. That's my goal. I've started to use a "to do" list so I don't get overwhelmed. Good luck to you, Debbie, I know you can do it.
