Day 29: Tired, Unmotivated

Submitted by BaylorBlondie on Thu, 05/25/2006 - 7:32pm.

I have been very tired lately even though I am sleeping the same amount of hours each night.  I’m not sure what is causing this.  The bad part is I know in my head that exercise will help me feel more alert, but I am so exhausted by the time I get home from work I just want to vegge on the couch all night.  It is a vicious cycle.

Lately, I feel so unmotivated because I haven’t seen the results as quickly as expected.  I read other blogs from dieters who celebrate that they have lost so much weight and gone down a size in their clothes.  While happy for them, this makes me more discouraged that I’m not on the same level.  The thought enters my mind that I should just give up.  I know that isn’t a possibility because I refuse to look like this anymore.  I hate picking out clothes to try on only to go back and get the next larger size.  I want to go back to the days of not being so self-conscious about my body.  Argh!
