Struggling.

Thursday, May 22, 2008

I've never weighed this much my entire life. I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong before, but after a week on this program it is clear to me. Almost every meal I had included some sort of fried item, and on top of that I stopped going to the gym completely. While I was back home I looked at old pictures of myself, in some of them I weighed about 160. Ironically, back then I used to think I was terribly overweight, and now 160 is my goal weight.
I was feeling good about losing my first ten pounds, but then last night my last pair of jeans [that still fit] were ripped open when I gracefully stumbled over myself. So now here I am, without a decent pair of pants. There's at least six pairs of jeans in my closet but I can no longer fit in any of them. It's such a small crisis, but even though I've lost 10 lbs the lack of fitting clothing makes me feel like I just gained 30.

    It's a very disheartening experience when you reach a weight you've never thought you would, but you have to use it to your advantage as motivation to lose weight. I really think what you need a support base around you. Having people online is great, but you need someone that can be in your life and help guide you and/or motivate you. My friend got me going to the gym to strength train 3 days a week and then I started doing cardio, and I don't skip the gym cause I know he wants a workout buddy and I don't want to let him down, so it benefits both of us. And I'm still fortunate enough to live at home where my mom has become very health conscious as well and she always tries to prepare healthy food, which really helps. You may have to go out of your way, but believe me do what you need to do to get a strong base of people that will help you and that is a major step.

    I can relate to this but do remember that it is going to take some time and try not to get too frustrated. Small slow steps forward will get you to the finish line! Set small goals that are easily obtainable so that you feel like you are moving forward and are acomplishing things - this helps gain confindence and makes a world of difference.

Good luck to you on your weight loss journey and remember - it takes time to make these changes and there will be set backs along the way but don't give up!
