It’s easy to get discouraged. “I’ll never lose the baby fat.” “I’ll never have a flat stomach again.” “I’m too old; my metabolism is too slow.” “There just aren’t enough hours in the day…”
I get it.
When you are feeling down, here are a few things to remember:
- You are in control of your life. If you aren’t satisfied, you have the power to change.
- This is temporary. Your present circumstances don’t have to be permanent. Things might be tough now, but this too shall pass if you are willing to put in the hard work.
- Remember your motivation. Think how far you’ve come. Focus on where you want to be six months from now. Do you want more energy? Do you want to set an example for your kids so they don’t have to go through the same yo-yo diet experiences you did? Don’t you deserve to be healthy?

You are stronger than you think. You got this. How do you stay motivated?
