I have had a real problem with motivating myself to since starting this challenge. It’s like my heart really isn’t in it at the moment.
Whilst I do want to lose the weight I am finding it a bother to point and count and even to log on to Weight Watchers. Yes, I downloaded the app too, but it’s still too much hassle to remember to fill it in half the time, or, if last week is anything to go by, any of the time.
I’m tending to stick to a bowl of fruit (melon, mainly) in the mornings for breakfast with a mug or two of coffee . Lunch, as a rule, is a salad or a sandwich if I’m out of the green stuff. Dinner is whatever the rest of the family is having. Sometimes it’s a low pointer, sometimes it’s not, but I figure if I’m more careful about what I’m sticking in my mouth the rest of the day it should be ok.
The theory this week has sucked because I have added half a pound. I am getting fed up of this. I’m a month into trying to “Free Skinny Me!” and I’m only a pound and a half down from where I began.
I need motivation.
Are you trying to lose weight too? How are you doing and how do you keep yourself motivated?
Can anyone share any tips or encourage me here please?

Are any of you joining in? How are you doing?
If you are trying to lose weight too why not join the quest to “Free Skinny Me!”? You don’t need to be following Weight Watchers to do so and your weigh in day doesn’t have to be a Monday. Just grab the button at the top of this post or in the right sidebar of this blog (the code to copy and paste on your blog is in the text box under the button) and put it on your blog, then come back each Monday to report each week’s weigh in result. You can also write a post on your own blog and leave a link back to it in the comments below so we can visit and leave a message of encouragement or support. You can choose how much or little info to disclose.
