    Need motivation to lose weight.

    I'm not overweight, and I've quit caring about diet. Is there a good way to get back the desire to be thinner? I'm not quite satisfied but I don't care enough to change. Any tips? While the lifestyle keeps me moderately in shape, how can I want to go further?

    Why go further? Sounds like you're happy enough but bored. Do you have health problems? You are the only one that can find your why. I'm sure you know exactly how to go further as you have been at this a while.

    No, you're supposed to encourage me. I have no problems, and I know how to go further. I just don't want it enough. Is there any reflexive action I can instill within myself to remind me what I want?

    Maybe your goals have changed and that's okay if you want a new direction. Other than that, find a new sport to get excited about playing. Go to a big fancy sporting goods store - the best in your area and meet some new people or look around for what excites you. I walked into a big sporting goods store yesterday and was wanting to try something new.

    This is where your future comes into play. Many future illnesses could be avoided by eating Primally. Silent Ones that by the time they are found have already done major damage. Diabetes (not just for fatties anymore), MS, Cancer, Pulmonary Emboli (This is what almost killed me last year) etc. Research is now showing a Gluten/Sugar connection to all of these and more. I wish I had been turned on to Primal when I was in my 20's so that I could have avoided some health issues. I am proof, however, that the Primal Lifestyle can also heal.

    So...Do Primal 80/20 or Hell even 60/40, but do it as much as you can. Besides, Primal makes people sexier and everybody likes that.

    So can you do up to level 9 on the primal blueprint fitness? Because that is really fricken hard. Maybe diet isn't your goal. Maybe being super freaky awesome is?

    It sounds like you are feeling guilty because of outside pressure to have perfect abs and no unusual jiggly bits.

    "I don't want it. Please remind me of what I want."

    You know what you want. Be happy as you are now.

    I'm with him. As I tell my thin friend who seems to tolerate moderate amounts of grains and sugar without digestive problems and without being driven to overeat, why fix it if it ain't broken?

    Sorry, but you're happy and looking for a reason to be dissatisfied.

    I'm not understanding this.
