Thanks for the words of encouragement! They have helped me to cope with this rough patch, and to re-capture that give up attitude. As a result I have had some amazing workout this past week and feel re-energized. My stress level is down and I am feeling much more positive about my weight loss journey. Thanks again and God bless!

One motivational phrase I read on a Sparkpeople motivational page says that it doesn't matter how slowly you go as long as you don't give up. I have found this to be true because I have gone through working hard and not getting the results I expected at the time I expected them. I have since learnt that our bodies respond differently to exercise and eating right. For some the results are almost immediate, and for others like me it takes a while. Now that I know it, I concentrate on consistently exercising and eating right and after a while I start to see results and others do too. Just yesterday someone noticed I had lost more weight when I hadn't even noticed myself (it's been almost 2 months since I weighed myself!). My advice to you is, focus on the positive and take this journey one step, one hour, one day at a time and you will be amazed at the results. Don't give up!

You're way ahead in the game from me so pat yourself on the back!

I'm still trying to just stay on my diet for a while day.

You're probably in the January doldrums. I think lack of daylight and sun light affects our metabolism and certainly reduces our activity. Sometimes just enough so that we break even instead of losing.

Keep up the good fight!

Just venting s bit here. Going through a stretch where I can't seem to catch a break, and on top of it my weight loss journey which seems to have been going in slow motion.....has come to a stop (Haven't stopped working at it, just not getting any results). Just so very frustrating! I know God won't put anything on my shoulders that I can't handle, so I will keep my chin up and I WILL break through this storm and be better for it.

(Deep Breath) Ok I'm done venting, thanks for listening.
