Pinkgirrly89, omgosh I am completely 100% there with you! It's really easy to get super discouraged and I definitely do, but I'm going to tell you what I should be telling myself:


Bad days and weeks happen. Don't beat yourself up about it. Just take a breath, think about what might have gotten you off track (social events, extra stress, boredom?) and move on. Today is a new day and a new week will start. We all have those trip-ups in our path to healthiness.

Thanks for posting. It's really helpful for me to remember these things too.

Forget about losing weight. Think about eating healthy and exercising as becoming new habits. Yes, there will be times when you get off track, but you just have to put your priorities in line and get back to the good habits again. In time, the weight will come off naturally. Rushing it is only going to get you frustrated, then you'll quit, then you'll gain everything back and a few pounds extra. Trust me, I've been there. Think in the long term, so you had a few crappy days, it's okay, just put them behind you and get back to the healthy stuff.

Good Luck!

Your admitting it is hard is a step you just past..

Now what can you do to get back on track?

Did you mess up with foods, exercise, vacation, eating out instead of making your meals?

Write down what you know you can change and work your way through it and then start from 1...

You will be okay and we are here for you when you need some support.

Life isnt about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning how to dance in the rain and jump in the puddles.. hang in there

Pain is weakness leaving the body

If you let go a little, you will have a little peace. If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace. Letting go is love. Holding on is attachment

"Losing weight is hard."

Well, no one ever promised that it would be easy!
