Those into fitness/exercising/working out....how do you stay motivated over the long term?? When I was first working on losing the weight..seeing myself shrinking and the number on the scale going down was motivation enough to keep going...it's now 15 months later...I have been about 8-10 lbs below my original goal weight since September and I am starting to lose steam. I enjoy my workouts...I start every day at the gym at 5:30 am....I started a new routine in January which I do enjoy but it the eating well that is killing me. I was doing so well with my eating from September to December...but after christmas I just haven't been motivated to get back to eating well...I am eating far too many carbs and sugary junkfood consumption is out of control....I just can't figure out how to get back on track and stay there. Would love to hear what others are doing.
