Hi, from one country person to another! I moved here, to a teeny rural town by the beach from busy SoCal, so I'm still adjusting myself. I frequently go days where I see no one but my kids' friends and my immediate family! It's tough when you're lonely. Stay posting here, and maybe see if there's an activity in town you can drive in for once a week? When at my worst here, I started going into town once a week and hitting up the tiny coffee place (now closed) or even just shopping around a tiny store. I volunteered at the kids' school and now have made friends who can motivate if need be, or just be a support. Takes a while and sometimes means we have to get out of our comfort zone, but don't let it get in the way of getting healthy!

I also feel unmotivated at times, like all last week I was ready to give up, stop exercising and eat what I want, then I woke up today, hit the gym and portioned all my food for lunch and breakfast. I know how you feel to not have a lot of support or work out buddies so turning to Sparkpeople is a great motivator.
Keep up the good work!

Chase your dreams and don't stop until you lasso them. emoticon

I sometimes find it hard to stay motivated. I sometimes wish I live closer to town. That way I could have someone to work with on this. I live in the country and my husband always tells me he loves me just the way I am. I let him know thats good, but I have to like myself and at this point I'm unhappy with the way that I look. I have been exercising since I have been on here except for last sunday. I will make more of an effort to exercise of some kind everyday. I'm glad I have the people from sparks. I know there is always someone to send you a motivating word.
