What is the problem?

Monday, April 21, 2008

I start out each and everyday with a plan. I plan my meals...I plan my exercise...I plan to succeed. I get through breakfast okay and then lunch goes pretty good and then after that I don't know what the problem is. I have gained as much as 20 lbs back at one point and I'm tired. I'm ready to give up but I can't. I need to lose this weight.

  I have just read your page and I think you have done so well that it would be a sin to let it all go.

I have gone up and the scale all of my life, and I know how much I hate myself on the day I wake up and I am at the top of my weight range. Which for information is a massive 29 stone around 406lb. I know now without a doubt, if I ever reach that weight again, it will be the end of me I will die this time, I am too close to 50 years old.

Come on lady, you have a choice to make do you get into those cute clothes you so want, or does your weight steadily creep up and you end up bigger than you were before.

You can do it as you have so demonstrated. I wish you success and motivation, but above all this I wish you good health and good judgement.

    Gurllll....I know you can get back on track...I'm new to the site & have just recently made the decision that I am ready to do what it takes to lose weight & live a happier healthier more energetic life. I read some of your earlier blogs & you really motivated me! We all fall down at one point or another you acknowledged its time to pick yourself up & keep on keepin' on...being a motivator for people like me!

    I used to experience what you are experiencing, but now I look at things completely differently. I have stepped off the scale and onto a healthy lifestyle, and along the way I have steadily lost weight. I do not make this change about losing weight. Yes, I count every calorie. I weigh, measure and count everything I eat. I record every mouthful. But my focus is my health. I look at each day as a goal. I look at each choice as a goal. And I make the best choice I can from those available in the circumstances I am in.

When I was scale jumping I never succeeded for long. Now I know nothing BUT success.

Try to make your focus your good health.

    I feel the same way sometimes too but we just have to press forward. Do a little at a time. One day the focus can be getting in the exercise. Another day the focus can be getting in all your fruits and veggies. And then another day you can focus on staying in calroie range.

Take it one step at a time and although you've gone back a few steps...remember all that you accomplished and steer your way back.

You can do this. You can! emoticon

    I feel the same way sometimes too, its gets overwhelming and all you want to do is say forget this! and just quit. But don't give up, you have accomplished SO much. This is a time when you need to rely on your faith, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep back in the fight!!! You CAN do this! I'm rooting for you diva!!

    I feel the same as you alot! But I read your sparkpage and you have had so many successes! Your initial weightloss in 2007, your nursing, your self esteem improvement. It also seems that you have gained alot of knowledge about all this weighloss stuff with Weight Watchers and Sparkpeople. You're doing GREAT! Don't be so hard on yourself. Everyday is a new start and you have already demonstrated that you can do anything you want to.
