My weight loss struggles and successes

I’ve been struggling with my weight and self confidence for a long time. Its been hard for me to lose weight and keep the weight off. A lot of my weight problems are because of my medications. Also having two babies hasn’t helped my weight. I also haven’t taken very good care of myself. I am a emotional eater and I love sweets. I tend to catch myself eating when I am bored, depressed, sad or angry. I almost always end up with sweets. In February 2018 I was weighing more than I ever have before so I called my doctor to discuss my concerns. We decided that even with eating healthy and exercise I would have a very hard time with losing weight. I started taking adipex which is a weight loss medication that curves your appetite. I took it for 2 months and lost 25-30 pounds. I was feeling so much better about myself, I was taken off the medicine and I kept the weight off for and recently let my diet slip so I gained 10 pounds back. I cut soda and chocolate back out of my diet and began adipex again in December 2018.
I want to get back into the gym but have always had bad anxiety about working out. I always worry about being judged by someone there. I need to focus on myself and not worry about what someone may think of me when I am trying to better myself.
Since I started adipex in March 2018 I’ve been on it a total of 3 months now and am down a total of 26 pounds. I would love to lose 40 pounds but I also know that means sticking to eating healthy, staying away from caffeine and sweets. Most importantly I need to get into the gym. My goal is to join a gym and get a personal trainer who can help me do the correct exercises so I don’t injure myself.

Motivation has been the hardest part for me when it comes to my weight loss. I’ve tried some different things to help with my motivation. I’ve created a vision board. I saw a lot of great ideas on Pinterest. I have also had Dalton take pictures of me for every 10 pounds that I have lost. I printed them out and placed them around my vision board so I could see my progress. On my vision board I set goals with rewards so once I lost 10 or 20 pounds I would reward myself with something fun! Just some ideas if you are needing some motivation in your life!
