I'm in that slump right now and need some ideas! I think I'm gonna need to seriously figure out exactly what my goals are and what is my motivation...

I look at pictures of people who have had success in losing weight and read their stories. That really gets me motivated because I feel like if they can do it, then I can do it!! Also, looking at pictures of myself when I lost so much weight after Jillian was born, when she was around 1 yr. old...it helps because knowing I did it once then surely I can do it again, so that helps to motivate me too!

Go SHOPPING! Sad, okay, and probably need to work on this one, but yah, that's what works for me. I got buy some cute outfit two sizes to small and that usually motivates me.

Cry! I don't really have anything in particular to offer. I think it's when I realize how fat I am and how I feel that affects me that I kick back into gear. I really see myself as smaller than I really am so when it clicks that I am bigger it hurts and makes me want to change it. Also I want to prove that I am better than some other people that think just because the are skinny/ier that they are better.

Look at all the clothes in my closet I cant wear right now, because they are too small & I'm too fat to wear them.....
