I am so bored of starting full of motivation to then give up and feel a failure, This is now a habit. and i hate it.

How do you break this pattern.? Is there something that needs to trigger to get to your goal?

I joined ww online yesterday. already this year i have joined WW meeting jan. SW meetings march and now ww online

i dont think going to class is for me. i need to find my own self discipline. I love i phone app and online so hoping this time is the last time i fail

To be honest as with any diet it's the 'want' that will keep you going... Summer I find easier... Reading on here helps enormously... Is WW the diet you prefer ? X

This forum has been helping me a lot. More than my family who laughed at me when I told them my goal weight. I'm quite small so I really want to be my ideal weight. Tired of being chubby mommy. :) I'm getting more motivated now that nobody believes that I can. weird.
Even you fall off the wagon, you should keep going and don't give up. It's something you want to do for yourself.

Hiya I understand because I have given up on countless diets, things just seem to get too hard! But what I have been doing is jsut trying to keep going, I have just changed from SW and I think a change has helped. But the main thing for me has been to realise that I have to work at this, I cant just join a class and lose weight, I have to be aware of what I do and eat and keep at it - even if it comes off slow it will come off, so dont let one bad week turn into the end and start again a few months later :)

Good luck - you can do it!! Believe in yourself!! xxx

Hi

I'm SO with you! I too have joined SW and WW this year, and have just given up classes and started online! I always start SO well, then go down hill - particularly at the weekend. I need a magic motivation pill please!

Good luck! Sorry that wasn't very helpful! :p

its good to be super motivated but it tails off and thats where it gets hard.
How much do you want it?
If you want it that bad then don't give in to wanting what you can't have.
No one said it was easy, somedays are harder than others, but just make it through the day and all those days add up.
best of luck :)

Motivation, is hard to keep, especially if you have a big amount of weight to lose.I remember thinking at nearly 19st I could never make it to 15 st, but by chipping away at it I did.....
I think it can sometimes be a bad thing to make your targets too big, I am SO happy with even a pesky pound lost, and I hope to eventually get to living by the 80 / 20 rule......
Now I think about actually reaching 12 st, and know it's not impossible.....

Limes, sometimes the bigger picture is just too overwhelming and you need to break it down into steps. -53lb could easily be you this time next year, but I think we all understand how overwhelming that seems in one go.

Set yourself minigoals, like I want to lose 7lb by the end of May, or I want to be 1st lighter by July, and make it realistic and it'll feel far more manageable. Then treat yourself!!!! I used to put £1 in a piggybank for every £1 I lost, when I got to Gold I put it towards a shopping spree.

My next goal is to get back to 12st 6lb (Gold weight), then after that it's 12st 4lb (Smallest I've been in 4 years).. then under 12st - so they're real little goals.

Try not to think of it as failing - it's a horrible word! Take it step by step and feel positive by what you're doing each week - don't be super strict on yourself, don't think of it as a diet, it's something you've got to change slowly :) And this forum is AWESOME.
