Keeping it going

How do you kep the motivation going....every morning I start out great. Today for example, I packed my food for work (shake for breakfast + vitamins, grilled chicken salad for lunch, cut up fruit for snack plus a fruit bar and some fruit snacks) and I brought my gym bag...my plan was to go workout after work....but lunch time arrived and I was fantisizing about potato chips...and I'd eaten all of the food  I brought...so I went to Walgreens and got a diet soda, a string cheese and some baked lays and then ate that plus my salad and decided I wanted ice cream....just a small serving...and I've thrown my plan to go to the gym out the window because I don't feel like it. Also, my husband and I have been waking up feeling stiff and sore so I'm trying to force him to go matress shopping tonight....I can't do it anymore....but between yesterday's lackluster weigh in 254.8 and feeling bummed....I have no motivation. And most nights, I go on facebook, only to find someone else is pregnant and so I go to bed with plans of fixing myself...and then fall flat on my face. And I want a baby more than anything but I can't seem to stay committed for more than ten minutes....how do you guys do it?

Well all fall off the wagon, but the secret to getting to where we want to go is getting back up, keeping our eyes on the prize and going for it!!!

Keep up the good work!!

I just keep reminding myself of my ultimate goals. And I give myself some slack - if I take a few days off, it's ok, I'll get back to it eventually and perhaps my lack of motivation is just my body's way of saying it needs a little rest. Hope that helps! Keep your head up!!
