    To be honest - it's when I see changes in my weight or how my clothes are fitting.

    4km walk and a hour group fitness sesh today. Today was a lesson in that's it not what you do for the hour or 2 that you're exercising, it's what you do for the other 23 hours of day.

    Had a chill day at home today plus my exercise this arvo and have only burnt 2100 cals according to my Fitbit. Yesterday I did the same amount of exercise plus had a busy 9 hour shift at work and burnt 2900. Big big difference!!

    It's hard to keep motivated, I have been really great so far but yesterday and today, some late night snacking has been happening😬 I just wake up aiming to try do better? And I always find a positive to pick me back up, my working out has been in full gear so that's a plus!!

    Tomorrow is a new day 😉

    For me once I start seeing results I keep motivated. It was really hard when I started my weight loss journey a year ago but now I automatically gravitate towards healthier options 80% of the time because I know I fee terrible when I eat terrible. Exercise makes me feel great and I get a break from mummy duties while doing it that's enough motivation for me. Don't get me wrong I make poor food choices probably on an almost daily basis but it's usually only a bite or two of something

    Strange thing to notice today. I've always had one decent sized fat roll around my stomach. Today getting dressed I bent over and it's now 2 smaller rolls....still isn't a great look 😜 but I'm guessing something must be shifting in there.
    I've not snacked between my 3 smaller portion sizes meals a day which is big for me. I was always finishing the kids dinner without realising. I now use a small bowl for yogurt breakfast. Ask for a small salad at lunch and eat from a side plate, not the usual dinner plate. I've not been hungry either, just someone who can't leave food behind so the more that's there the more I eat.

    I say results motivate me. I also feel healthier so that makes me want to continue. It's not always weight. Like this morning my stomach feels flatter. I even took a photo!

    my gym is open and im back to going there every day. I have been out of routine with my eating, blame Christmas and whatever, but I am getting back into the good habits. I want to get to 65kg and then I will decide if I want to loose any more. I am floating around 72kg. marie.
