How to stay motivated in the gym

Having a busy schedule makes it hard to stay motivated in the gym especially when you're not seeing results. We've been following Mary Ward "Wubbie" Hendrix since October on her journey to lose 60 pounds. The 27-year-old Atlanta-area school teacher is working with personal trainer Mike Granatelli to reach her goal, but is having a difficult time staying focused.

Since our last visit a month ago, Granatelli said he has noticed Hendrix struggling and her "motivation dropping off." He starts her session with a motivational pep talk.

It can be frustrating if you're trying to lose weight and you plateau. For the last several months we've been following Mary Ward "Wubbie" Hendrix on her quest to lose 60 pounds.

She is at the same weight she was a month ago, but she's still down eight pounds since October, when she started.

The ups and downs of losing weight

The ups and downs of losing weight

If you're trying to lose weight, you know there are ups and downs. Mary Ward "Wubbie" Hendrix is a 27-year old Atlanta area school teacher who is trying to lose 60 pounds. We've been following her journey since October. At her last weigh-in with her personal trainer, Mike Granatelli, she was unpleasantly surprised by what she saw: She had gained four pounds.

But Granatelli is encouraging. "The good news is you're still down eight [since October]," he said. Hendrix, however, is frustrated. "I feel like I work out really hard, and I'm gaining weight," Hendrix said. Granatelli, in turn, assured her that everybody goes through these ups and downs. "Everyone loses, everyone gains again, so you just have to keep progressing," he explained.
