I feel completely overwhelmed by this whole weight loss thing. I looked at myself in the mirror this morning after putting on my sweats, and I was depressed to see how bad I now look in my t-shirt.

But, did that give me more motivation to work out this morning? Nope. I hate working out. Hate, hate, hate it. I don’t think I’ve ever been more miserable than I am when I’m exercising.

And, I’ve never lost weight from working out. Joe doesn’t believe me, which is probably because he can lose weight from working out, but for some reason, I can’t. So, basically, it’s a huge waste of time for me.

Which means, I have no idea where to go from here. I don’t know what else to do to lose the 50 pounds I’ve gained. I’m miserable being this fat, yet I don’t really have the motivation to do anything about it.

    I hear ya. I’m still 10 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight from Alexa, and this is after the 10 recent pounds off from getting my tonsils out last month, which I’m afraid I will probably gain back soon. I actually managed to get myself down to this weight after Alexa was born, but then gained 10 more pounds back after I stopped nursing her.

    It’s so frustrating, but I don’t feel like I have time for exercising and walking with two kids is so much harder than when it was just Ava. I also hate exercising. I can lose weight that way if I really try, but I don’t enjoy it. I re-joined the gym in November & have gone once. What a waste.

    You’ll find the motivation when you’re ready for it. Life with a baby is stressful enough without the added stress of trying to lose weight. Maybe focus on eating healthy rather than losing weight for now, because that’s what’s important.

    Cady, I’m right there with you. It’s been a constant struggle for me, thanks to the stupid PCOS & hormonal crap, and I hate working my butt off for no real results. Even after losing a few pounds, my body does NOT change and I still look awful.

    Just thought I’d let you know that you’re not alone – and we’re here if you need to talk. Besides, I think you’re gorgeous no matter what; you always look super nice and smiley in your pictures! 🙂

    Like Aly says, you’re not alone! I hate the struggle I have with my weight — I have FOUR different sets of sizes in my closet. So frustrating! I’m not a fast “loser” but then again, I also am not 100% dedicated to counting my points, working out, etc — the stuff of success in the Weight Watchers program.
