frustration

Saturday, January 12, 2013

I am so frustrated right now. My weight jumped four pounds overnight. The only thing I can think of is that I was at the top end of my range last night....

    I can do that, too.
You've had some great advice and encouragement already. Mine would be to make sure you are getting enough sleep. I've gained 5 pounds in a day, but I've also lost 4 just overnight. emoticon Look at the big picture, not just the scale to measure your progress.

    Don't panic! I recently weighed 6 lbs more in a matter of hours! Then down as quickly w/ absolutely nothing that spiked it.

    I dislike it when that old scale jumps too. It could be so many things, as you probably know. Salty food, just your body clinging to water. The good news is you know the drill, right? Take the next healthy step...

Also might be a good time to look over the motivation pages on Spark.

Got sun?

Friday, January 11, 2013

It's amazing how much sunshine is making a difference in my motivation level to keep on track with my health journey. Since yesterday, it has been so gloomy. It rained last night, so made it rather difficult to get outside for a walk without me being absolutely miserable. And I don't find exercising inside my home the most enjoyable thing...but, I have to persevere. Not losing weight is NOT an option at this point. I need to improve my health. I want to have guys turn their heads again. I want to have a better chance of getting a new, better job (and yes, employers are less likely to hire a person who is heavy).

    For me, sunshine is like oxygen. I relocated for it early in life.

Hit the 7 pound mark

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I am so excited today as I hit the 7pound mark in my weight loss for this year. I so want to keep this up so that I can show the jerk who played with my heart what he's missing out on.

trying to get enough nutrients

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

I'm noticing that there a certain nutrients that I keep struggling to get enough of in my diet - magnesium, vitamin e, vitamin d, and zinc. I need to do more research into what I can have that's not high in calories and fat.

I'm also frustrated...I've been reading more and more about how PCOS, which I have, makes it really hard to lose weight. I'm frustrated because I'm trying to find a specialist to help me come up with a diet plan, but I can't get in any where and have it work somewhat with my work schedule...

    You may benefit from seeing an Endocrinologist if you haven't yet. They can use Glucophage and other things to help PCOS. I didn't know I had PCOS until I was already diabetic. I was able to lose weight more easily with nutition help, carb counting etc. Best wishes!!

    I eat the best varied diet that I can - but I do take supplements under the advice of both my doctor and chiropractor.

    I take supplements. I could never eat enough food to get all of the vitamins & minerals required in any given day. Wishing you luck in finding a doctor who can give you an appointment that will align with your job.

Getting back into things

Monday, January 07, 2013

Well, I'm getting back into things after being out for awhile. I have been so miserable lately I need to force myself to do things that will make my life better. If I don't make things get better, they won't.

    Good for you. Getting back to better health through diet and exercise should make you feel better - even if it doesn't make your life better emoticon
