Unmotivated in January + Comfy Weight

Hello, and happy Monday! How is the month of January treating you so far? Truth be told, I started out the month feeling less than motivated. I haven't been making weight-loss a goal or priority since before the holidays. Thankfully, I've still maintained around the same weight, despite my lack of motivation. 

Over the past couple of months, I have maintained the bare minimum of healthy habits and practiced them about 50% of the time. That seems to be the magic percentage for me to maintain my weight but, I know it's time to start moving toward that 80/20 percentage again so I can start losing the rest of the weight I have to lose.


My husband and I were talking the other day and I think the reason I have trouble getting out of the 230's/220's weight range is because this is my comfy weight. He said he feels the same way for himself. Like, sure, I still have a lot of weight I could lose but this is the weight where I am still fairly comfortable in my body and so it take a little more motivation and discipline to keep moving on from here.

The way I plan to work through this struggle is to start reassessing "my why". I'm going to take some time in the next couple of days to journal the reasons I want to lose weight and live a healthier life. If you're feeling unmotivated, I'd encourage you to do the same! Let me know if it helps you at all!
