Have you ever tried a structured program that lasted more than a month or two? What if you do something like Couch 2 5k or New Rules of Lifting which take longer than that. I was unsuccessful until I had a program where I could see tangible results.
The previous times I had tried and was unsuccessful was when I was doing something I didn't enjoy. The elliptical was so darn boring and I couldn't actually see anything getting better. When I did C25K I had someone pushing me and I could see results. Plus it took 8 weeks so I was into a routine by the time I was done.

Motivation is good for getting started but for me the key is consistency. Motivation is based on feeling and consistency is based on duty, at least from my point of view. I treat staying in shape safeguarding my health and resculpting my body like a task that must be done no matter how I feel. I hope you discover a method that will work for you.

10 years of a roller coaster of weight. I start off strong but after a month or two I just lose motivation. Right now I have no motivation to start anything. I think I have become comfortable with my fat. I am in desprate need of help!! I am afraid that my lack of issue with my weight will transfer over to my children. I need to find the motivation to get started not just for me but for my kids.
