No motivation

This post will be short and sweet.

I did track my food intake on Monday like I promised, but that's it. I haven't tracked my food intake since then. I don't know why, but I haven't been feeling very motivated. I'm still feeling like I need a break so I don't get burnt out on WW and give up on it for good. I'm not sure which route I should take- stop paying for WW and just try to eat reasonably on my own (while still weighing in) or keep my membership and come back to it when I'm ready?

I just don't know what to do. It doesn't help that I've been sick practically all week when I just came off a horrendous cold less than 3 weeks ago. I guess it's just going to take some getting used to for my body to adjust to being around sick kiddos all the time. I feel like death :( For the past few days the medicine I've been taking has just made me there but not really there. I've just been going through the motions, but I feel mentally detached from everything, like I'm just floating around in a daze everywhere. I hate how medicine does that! UGH.

Any advice on how to get myself back on track would be appreciated :)


  1. I would say drop WW and calorie count. I know it seems overwhelming. I use and love it!

  2. Thanks for your thoughts, that's something to think about :) I'll give an update when I figure it out.

  3. Honestly, I've been where you are before-

    Fact of the matter (for me) is that:
    1) if I am not registered for WW, I do not REALLY watch what I'm eating
    2) it is easier for me to count points than calories
    3) If you cannot afford it financially, you can still use a P+ calculator and the materials (if you go to a meeting center) and run the program without paying...

    Remember, no matter WHAT you choose, the commitment is to YOURSELF...a WLJ is for your long-term health and longevity.

    I'm a BIG list-maker - I would sit down and consider the pros/cons of your choices...or make a list of reasons WHY you want to work on a WLJ...maybe it will get you refocused.

    If you need help, you know where to find me!
