Q: Ok so I’m following the Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle e-books. I’ve transformed my eating and eat Very well, since January 7th of this year. I joined Bally’s and know how to weight train and use the elliptical like it’s going out of style.
I only have one problem. I haven’t been to the gym in 2 weeks. I have ADD so for me this is par for the course, I start something, I do it great for about a month and a half, or however long, and then I completely drop off.
I have not done that with my eating though because I know how great eating great makes me feel.
So why am I having such a hard time motivating myself into the gym again? I Always feel great when I’m done, and I see good, slow results.
How do you deal with mental blockage in weight loss? I know this is a lifetime commitment and I want to commit to it, but I’m having a rough time. Maybe my self-esteem from being fat for so long is having a hard time letting go to what I’ve always known.
Thanks for any response you can give.
By the way, I’m 30 in 11 days, white female, endomorph, 5’3 and 200 lbs. A good deal of that is actually muscle, I found a fantastic trainer 3 years ago who showed me how to train effectively as opposed to efficiently, but again, I quit after a few months here and there.
Maybe I’m just scared to be slim. Women do get treated like objects when they’re skinny. I don’t want that.
