    Motivation, does anyone else think this way as well?

    Hey everyone.

    I'm 5'7 and 185 lbs. I use to weight 215 lbs around late July... lost 30 pounds till late October. I stopped going to the gym around late September but I'm going back in to finish what I started. For some odd reason, I honestly can't see myself getting fit, having a six-pack, etc. I don't know, it seems like it's impossible, that it can't be done... I just can't picture myself being in great shape, even though I want it. Anyone else think this way? I also lose motivation when I see people in the gym in great shape when I'm overweight... :/

    I know I'm doing this for myself, but I can't help it.

    I will do anything that it takes to get into good shape, I'm 110% dedicated now... I feel even more motivated then before.

    P.S. What's the ideal weight for a person who's 5'7?

    When I started I never thought I'd see my abs (probably should have stopped losing weight before I saw them since I am just a skinny bastard now), I was 200 pounds of solid fat. Took me 4 years of trial and a LOT of error but I got abs now. Just stick to it, stay consistent, and keep the big picture in mind; you will see results if you put in the work.

    As for any "ideal" weight, that is to vague to answer since muscle/fat ratio, bone density, and other factors will cause to much variation from person to person. Pick a weight you want to be and get to it, then see how you feel at that weight and re-evaluate your goals from there.
