Hey you- I am always here! Hee hee I havent been on SP very much- and it definately shows on the scale. While I have not gained weight, I have stayed at a plateau with my weight loss. Which makes sense considering the junk that I've been eating.
I know it must be frustrating you to experience regaining the weight- but at the same time maybe it can give you some feedback. Like why did it happen? Do you think the behaviours you address while on WW, were temporary rather than permanent? I don't think losing weight is difficult- but keeping it off- is another story!
I do think you need to find yourself a compelling reason to motivate you that will keep you going despite the challanges that life throws you. Again, I still think the podcasts are a great way to keep you motivated and allow for some introspection.
And I would recommend tackling the eating first. Dont get me wrong exercise is great, but I think overrated, and alot of ppl drop it by the wayside when they run out of time. And I do think it is harder to change eating habits, because there is such a strong emotional connection between what we eat, and how it makes us feel, that for a lot of ppeople, its much easier to say "Ill just jump on the treadmill" instead of I will not eat that donut, chocolate, ice cream etc. But I do think the reason that ppl are fat is not because they dont execise but because its so difficult to give up those comfort foods. At least its like that for me.
I hope I dont sound like Im lecturing. I know what its like to struggle becuase thats what the past few months have been like for me. I feel like I have let myself get dstracted from my goals, and yes, have made many excuses that just dont measure up. I heard this quote by steve martin "the bext think I can do for my career- is breathe" and it really made me think that the best thing you can do for yourself is to put your health first. Because if you dont have that- all those other things in your life- work school people will just be pointless.
And my point is that i'm always still here, through the good times and bad. We will get through humps and plateaus and setbacks. You can do it girl.
