Struggling to stay motivated

Started in January 2019 and I am so close to my goal but a trip to Mexico helped me gain 7 pounds. Since I’ve been home (2 weeks) I took the vacation weight gain off but I’m struggling to stay motivated! Cheating is so easy lol 15 more pounds to go

    Hoping that seeing those photos and your amazing progress will keep you motivated to maintain - it really is worth the effort.
    Motivation will be fleeting so you need to keep your eyes on the prize - in other words, you want to keep the weight off and it takes effort consistently to keep it off.

    Put those pictures on your fridge! That's a lot of inspiration right there. :) Congratulations and good luck!

    You look great. You're doing well. Consider where you are at. Remember that it is a life change not a diet. If you got there through eating right, you don't go back to eating crap just because you hit your goal. If you got there through exercise, it's part of your life now. I feel your pain. I lost 20 lbs and I have currently hit a wall, and I want to lose to lose 50 more. Keep working. If you keep working, the worst that happens is you maintain. Quitting means going back and you don't want that. You posted the pics. You know you made progress. Hang in there.

    You are doing great! So many people would have seen those 7 pounds as a reason to give up but you didn't!
