Trying to stay motivated

Hi folks. I am new to SparkPeople. 25 years old and have been struggling with my weight all my life. I lost about 60 lbs, and have successfully kept off 30 of that for 5 years. I would like to lose 15-20 and then maintain. Weight is such a struggle though, and I have a very intense family history of health problems, that I am trying to focus on health and fitness. My fitness goals are to run a 5K and build enough upper body strength for 20 toe pushups. Motivation welcomed!

Congrats on your 10K goal in the upcoming race! I'm a pace bunny for the half-marathon on the 21st. I loved your friend's suggestion for the 3 goals. I usually have two, one for a realistic finish and one for a push time. Based on your 5K results, I think you're going to pleasantly surprise yourself!

I hope you can stick to this goal and take good care of your mom. You're balancing a lot.

Happy running! emoticon

Thank you for being one of the few of us who knows that it's just as hard to maintain! I'm in a similar boat, except I'm older (30) and I lost more weight, but gained more of it back. Why is it so hard?

I'm not here to whine. I'm here to remind you that you aren't alone and that this does suck, but that we can do it. We both could be at our goal weights for August. Good luck!
