Are there any of you ladies a pracrasternators?

I am a stay at home mom and I wait to the last minute to do what I have to do.
I don't like that of myself but I just can't get motivated only until the last minute my SO gets so mad at me for doing this I just tell him hey atleast I do it.
But he looks at it like this why not knock it out early and be done with it and not be so overwhelmed later. TRUE but I just can't. Any tips or ideas. I can't even get on my treadmill or elliptical I am so out of it. I used to do stuff now I am like where is the energy. I am a size 18 I could loose 30 lbs though I just don't have it in me....Help me ladies!!!

  • Cafe mom seems to make it harder doesn't it? I think we just have to put all distractions aside and just do it.

  • ok. i read your whole question. your problem isn't procrastination, it's motivation. i used to like to do lots of things i don't anymore. find what works for you. break up the task into small pieces and ease into it... also, i had a big problem getting motivated when I was tired all the time. hypothyroid is a common problem with weight and energy. my endocrinologist gave me a weight-loss med for a time too. also excess yeast and food allergies could be contributing to both, very common and not widely known. PM me if you want more info.
