where did i go wrong??????HELP!!!!!

Saturday, October 10, 2009

so much for good intentions i decided to recomitt to healthy lifestyle and healthy eating on the 9 of september.i am afraid i haven´t got very far with it even though i am down by 1#.life just seem to get in the with with my torn ligament in my foot which still seems to be hurting me.with my oldest and the baby getting ill,the baby being in hospital my motivation and determination i had when i wrote my recomit blog seemed to have vanished in a puff of smoke.i have just been looking back on my spark page and descovered a challange i was on with another spark friend which i had totally forgot about(must check out his page to see how he is doing on it)it started on the second of june and is supose to finish on the 31st of this month.i planed to loose 50 lb on the challange.guess what my start weight was 244# as my presant weight is 255# i guess i am not doing that good eh.so much for 50# weight loss i will be please if i manage to break even.is it possible to loose 11# in twenty days i wonder?oh well.back to basics i guess and just look at what i have lost since my heaviest weight a few years ago.which is 75# lost.it maybe not going as quick as i would like but it is going with a few backtracking along the way.if i hadn´t kept putting back on and loosing it a gain i would now be at my goal weight.noone else to blame but myself i suppose.suggestions welcome to cheer me up please.i am tired,fed up,powered out,depressed whatever you like to call it i need to get my motivation back i had a couple of weeks ago and get on with it.HELP!!!!!!

thanks kamilla for pointing it out to me it was a typo have now changed it it should have read 255 not 455.thankyou everybody for your replies and support.

    Salaam Sis! I'm sorry that I've been away. It just became so difficult to stay on SP while homeschooling and going through Ramadan. Now all is well, AlhamduLILLAH and I am slowly working my way back.

    I hope that you and your babies heal soon - May ALLAH take away your difficulties, AMEEN.

    Take care,
    miss you too,

    Take a deep breath and know you are not alone in what you are going through. Although circumstances are different....the feelings are very much the same. You have come a long way and this is just part of the process. Don't let yourself get overwhelmed....with all you are dealing with...that happens so easily. You have a lot of support and wise encouragement left for you here....let that lift your spirits and help get you through the rough spots like you are having. The support here can truly make all the difference : ) Never forget...you are worth it! Hang in there...you CAN do this!

    Hi, Karen. Everyone who wrote below is right: you made awesome progress in losing 75 pounds, life does indeed sometimes get in the way of our goals, and it's great that you've stopped, recognized the problem, and are looking for ways to forge ahead. My progress has been stalled for a few weeks, and I really appreciated this Spark article that appeared in my mailbox this morning--"25 Ways to Get Back on Track Today":


    It has some great suggestions, including lots of little things that I know you can do. Give it a try!

    hey, sorry to hear things are rough right now. take small steps every day and focus on the successes you have. i know it seems a terribly slow process but you have made great progress so far! keep on plugging away, i know you can. i'm dealing with many life obstacles right now that derail my plans on a regular basis, we just have to do the best we can with what we have to work with every day. woohoo to those 75# you have been successful at shedding already!

    It is natural (for some of us) to gain weight during times of stress. (Although others actually lose without trying!) To not make a major gain is already a kind of victory. Don't beat yourself up over a gain during a stressful time.

    On the other hand the foot should not stop you from losing weight. It is possible to lose weight by diet alone. People in wheelchairs have done it! Once the baby is out of the hospital you can look up things like chair dancing and cardio for the arms.

    For now, I think you would be wise to concentrate on healthful eating and getting enough rest. Work in what exercise you can, but don't overdo the walking and other footwork. emoticon

    Karen, I agree with both of the people below! That you have lost 75 pounds is awesome! Remember that as you work on losing more! And don't discredit the "healthy lifestyle" part, either! If you do nothing but make good choices - even though the weight stays the same - you are still better off than you were before!

    We're all here for you, sweetie!

    As much as we hate to admit it happens, sometimes life just gets in the way. There is a bright side to this. You have recognized there is an issue and are wanting to face it.

    Forget past goals, forget past issues. Today is a new day. What will you do today to take a step in reaching your goal?

    Tomorrow - rinse and repeat what I just stated above! :)

    Just take it one baby step at a time and to take it one day at a time. As they say slow and steady wins the race . also make your self same small goals on your way to your main goal.
