While working out don't give up. Sometimes all you have to do is, just slow down a little. Then catch your breath and continue your workout.306198
If you keep moving and every time you do your work out, sooner or later you will complete the workout. This will make you feel great when this happens. Remember this takes time, give yourself that time.
Focus on Your Achievements ,not on what you feel is failure!
I have been on SP for a little over a year & a half now and I have lost the 20 lbs & got down to a healthy wt ,though the maintenance is still a difficulty though not as hard as it used to be! I have a problem area ~my belly ~ that will not flatten b/c I do not have the discipline to stay away from some sweets ALL the time,but I have learned that to my surprise,while I have continued my workouts and eaten healthIER, my OTHER body parts ,like my shoulders...
are getting more defined and look GREAT! I am learning to focus ON my achievements~wt.loss maintained, body parts healthy ,strong, and defined ;cholestrol now normal;MORE ENERGY and energetic all the time than I used to be !!!!! Focus on the positive and you'll BE positive! Leave the negative alone
I look at inches lost, my doctor's positive feedback, increased energy and endurance levels, firmer/toned body AND I go by how my clothes fit. I buy smaller size clothing and try them on often. As the clothes start to fit, this motivates me to continue my workouts and healthy eating.
This helps with the obsession over the scale and looking at other ways to measure progress.
