How committed are you to exercising and/or other lifestyle changes? Do you feel like you are in it for life or are you just taking it day by day?

I would love to say I was committed for life and I hope to be. But right now I am just taking it a week at a time and trying to set goals and stick with them. I'd really like to get to where I am doing most of my workouts consistently each week but I'm still not there yet. I do good for a week and bad for a week. But, I think I'll get there eventually. I also think I've set hard goals for myself so that's why I can't always do it but I want to be in really good shape so I don't really want to change my goals.

Are you trying to lose weight or get in shape? Stop by the Mommy Fitness board and say hello.

I've been very committed to exercise for a long time now, because I like it. Diet changes, not so much at all. But that (a better diet) has been my focus for the last week. I'm finally admitting that I'm not going to make more progress unless I reign in my diet. I've been on this "plateau" for like two years now. Well, minus the time I've spent pregnant, of course.

Pretty committed. I was just thinking this morning about how I never want to get back to where I was after having Grace. I actually made major diet changes after having her (not really for weight loss...I started eating gluten free, and that really forced me to make changes for life). I'd say for the most part I've been consistent with diet and exercise over the past 2 years, with the exception of a few weeks in the first trimester with Anna, and then the first 4 weeks after she was born. I'm hoping it's for life. Whenever something major is going on, though, I tend to neglect exercise.

I'm committed for life but like you I also take it day by day. I want to be healthy and exercise but I have my moments where I just can't find the energy or motivation so I just try to get back at the next day. Lately I've felt like crap with this morning sickness so I have not been doing that great but I know once the morning sickness lets up I will get back at it.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I am very committed from a food perspective, still working on the exercising aspect. This past week I've had absolutely zero motivation. Starting again this week.

I am committed to working out for life, I am however having trouble with the food. I don't have a sweet tooth, but I have a snacking problem, and DH usually has junk around the house.

I'm committed to the exercise portion, well, running because I enjoy it. The other stuff, like lifting, strength stuff, I don't enjoy as much and it's hard for me to do it. I still struggle with diet. That is a day to day thing, and I fall off the wagon all the time.

Thanks Jaidynsmum!!

Day by day. I don't know that I'll do it for life, but I'll do something, but this is for weight loss, and I don't want to always loose weight, I want to eventually level out at a thinner weight.

VERY committed to it. I gained 50 lbs with my pregnancy and I am just disgusted with how I let myself go while I was pregnant. I workout 6 days a week and we eat very healthy. Our daughter eats very healthy foods. I want to be the best role model for her I can be.

Once I have my mind set on something I stay committed every day. Some days are harder than others, but I constantly remind myself why I have set these goals for myself and why I am doing this for my health and keep going!

for life...yeah there are times when I stop for a day or two here or there or even up to a week...but I never feel as if I want to STOP after those short breaks...I am anxious to get back to working out...these last few days of doing nothing (well not really nothing I am sure I burned quite a bit of weight hauling things around and what not)......but I really want to get back into working out!

I"m committed to excercise, but not as good with diet.
If I could just get the two of them at the same time I'd lose these extra 70lbs

Lucky mother to five!
