Frustrated with the lack of support online and in rl

Monday, May 09, 2011

I can't seem to get any support in rl, and came looking for some here but it feels like i have fallen through the cracks. I have no SP friends, my posts are often not commented on (or if they are, by only one or two people), and i still feel like I'm going at it alone despite being in several teams.

I only lost 1 pound this last week too. Not sure if that is cause i upped my calories slightly, as recommended by SP due to the increase in cardio i've been doing.... or if it is due to eating out with friends this past week and grilling with family yesterday. I know i should be happy at that loss, but i'm frustrated as I don't wanna fall behind what i'm scheduled to lose, to make my goal weight when i want to.

    Saw your blog scrolling across the Omaha sidebar. Starting out here can be really hard sometimes. The best thing you can do is be proactive and offer support to others. When others see you supporting them they tend to give their support in return.

One pound loss is awesome. Sometimes, as I've learned in my journey of 130lbs and counting, you can't rely on a schedule. Sometimes things fall behind plan. The best thing you can do is celebrate your small victories and keep on moving.

Hoping you have a good week. emoticon

    Hi! Thanks for posting on my message! I wanted to let you know that I added you as a friend! I know in the past I downplayed how important it is to have support from others mostly because no one really offered but I'm learning it can be a huge help!
I think losing just 1 pound is awesome...I've had to many times when I gained or just didn't lose anything. This past week I gained 1/2 a pound and I felt like I had done sooo well, but I was able to look back and see some reasons why that was. So this week I'm making a huge effort to not let that gain get to me and set me back but focus on keeping my goals for this week and know that its leading to a new lifestyle, which is what I really want/need!

    I'm sorry you're feeling frustrated! Be sure to go through other people's blogs and make comments and you shouldn't hesitate to add people as friends on here. You don't have to even get someone's permission to add them as a friend, you can add as many friends as you want to! But remember to tell them if you add them because then they can add you back!! If you are active on here friends will come to you! You could add a picture of yourself to your page as well, it makes it feel a little more personal if someone can see your face and they might be more likely to add you as a friend!
Don't worry about the 1 lb wt loss. That's good! Remember to be flexible about your goals, you can't always force your body to cooperate with your time frame! I've only lost about 4 lbs in the last couple months but I've also lost almost 2 inches all over!! Your body will catch up with your new lifestyle, so don't worry if it seems slow at times! Congrats on your progress so far!

    Sorry that you feel you are going this alone, no one should ever feel that way here. There is a lot of support available here and I hope you find some soon. Don't worry about slow weeks in the weight loss department, there will be some big weeks as well. You are working toward an average overall. Keep up the good work and do not give up.

    If you ever feel like venting feel free to talk to me, Im relatively new here I only have 2 friends and one of them is my husband who hasnt come on here since he joined! Sorry to hear you feel like you've 'fallen through the cracks' Why not try having a look through the spark pages and add some people who have similar goals? emoticon

Celebrating this past week's weightloss

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

I was scared to weigh in yesterday morning, because i wasn't sure if i had really lost anything this past week... but was pleasently suprised with a 4 lb loss.... To celebrate, I decided to wear a cute new top into work. emoticon I figure i might as well wear the cute tops i got a few weeks ago before starting SP, before they get way to big on me. emoticon
