Coming clean is the hardest for me.

i have been so lazy this last week , i have not exercised and have been junk fooding it like crazy.
I have lost my motivation again.I don't know why i can't put my mind to exercising and eating raw,i know it's healthy and good for me but i just don't stay with it,WHY WHY??? I quit a smoking addiction in a flash but not this. I am so frustrated with myself.

i have all the healthy food in my fridge but i go buy junk food!! I do want to be fit & toned & trim.I want to fit into a size 34 pants and be able to walk on the beach in a sexy bikini!!

Why cant i get my mind into healthy!!

    Try setting smaller goals for yourself. Sometimes only changing one or two things in your lifestyle at a time is easier to maintain that trying to change everything at once. It's a lifestyle change not a diet, so don't deny yourself things, choose them as rewards and in smaller amounts. I have found that if I'm really wanting something...I look up the calorie value and then figure out how much I have to exercise to bring it to a zero value...often times, it's just not worth eating!

    Sounds like you might feel pressured or forced into a corner, and your body/mind is rebelling. I agree with previous members about baby steps and taking 10 minutes or one small positive choice. It will build on itself. There are a lot of articles and tools on SP about motivation and overcoming obstacles to it. Dig in and see what you find! Take care, Kathleen

    emoticon Baby steps. There are days where I don't want to do ANYTHING, so I convince myself to go out on my walk on my break at work, and if that's all I can get in today, then that's better than what I used to do. If I want to eat junk, after some careful thought, asking myself if it's something I REALLY want or if I'm just eating for another reason, if I just want it, I let myself have it, knowing that tomorrow I'll start the day off with a healthy breakfast.

    You're not the only one on the motivational roller coaster, but you just need to remind yourself what you want, what you need, and how you can obtain those things. emoticon

    Quitting smoking was easier for me because you don't have to smoke everyday in order to survive. You do have to eat. My food was always difficult to deal with. I am having some good success having switched to a low fat, plant based diet. The lines are clear of what I can eat and what I can't. That has solved some of my problem. Just keep working at it. You'll find what works for you. Don't be too hard on yourself. Just remember to do right by yourself. Don't listen to the old critic. Start hearing that positive inner coach. She would say, "you can have that greasy thing if you think that's what you want, but remember how it feels when you've eaten it. And if you don't remember, pay close attention to how you feel this time. It will help you choose better next time." Your mind is into healthy, you're mouth just doesn't quite know that yet.
    Take Care and make one small, good choice. It will help you back to where you want to be.
    Love,

    We all go through these times, and wonder the same thing. It's a struggle daily, but the end result is well worth it. As far as the exercise goes......commit to 10 minutes a day. I bet if you will do that you will end up doing more.

    Eating healthy....that's the hardest part for me. Just ask yourself if what you are eating is worth working twice as hard to get it back off. Sometimes it works for me, sometimes not so good. I have been losing 5-6 pounds then gaining it back for several months now.
