Grumpy

Monday, November 24, 2008

Yeah, that's me. I feel grumpy. And because I feel grumpy, I'm sick of Spark People. I'm sick of worrying about my food. I'm sick of going to track my dinner calories before I decide whether or not I can have something small for dessert. I feel a bit sad, and I just want to eat. I don't want to change my lifestyle. I don't want to be healthy. Tonight, I just want to be bad, have cake, or an ice cream sundae, or some of the (still) leftover Halloween candy, and not care.

But I won't. Because I do care. The guilt kicks in before I even go there... I guess that's that thing that Coach Dean calls my "healthy lifestyle conscience". I guess this really is a lifestyle change... and some days, that's whether I like it or not.

    I completely emphasize with you. It's really hard to be positive and upbeat about weight loss this time of year. I also think if you can survive this time of year, keep goals intact and continue the path you're on, you really can do anything. Look back at where you were months ago and how hard you've worked. You really have accomplished a lot. You've learned a lot. Some of those things you probably don't want to know now, but you have. And you've made huge progress. It's normal to be frustrated. It's also okay to hate the process right now. Keep looking forward because the future is better and you don't want to go back.

Good luck. I'm pulling for you.

    Been there, done that -- I have days where I feel like if I have to plan one more healthymenu or cook one more healthy meal, the men in the white coats will come and haul me away with a strait jacket! But kudos to you for sticking to it and being careful even when you don't feel like it! You are doing a great job!

    I just like your attitude!! Put it out there, get it off your chest!! I have days like that too, and that's the best thing you can do. Rant, rave, bitch, moan........and then realize........you're going to be good anyway. But don't you feel a lot better. Don't keep it bottled up......let it go!!

    It's okay to have times like this. It's good that you're maintaining control though. Who knows, maybe there's a point where eventually you stop thinking about your diet and it won't be such a burden. I know it's like that with exercise, I always thought people who 'liked' exercise were nuts, but I've actually reached that fabled point where I look forward to it. As far as diet, something that has been helpful for me has been to plan my days out in advance, so that I can have a reasonable dessert and compensate for it throughout the day. Hang in there!
