IN NEED OF.......
Saturday, May 08, 2010
OH GOD I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. I SERIOUSLY THINK I NEED TO SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF WHY IT IS SO HARD FOR ME TO STAY ON TRACK. I AM SO STRESSED OUT AND DEPRESSED. I WENT TO THE DOCTOR THE OTHER DAY AND GOT SOME BAD NEWS. I FOUND OUT THAT I AM ABOUT 30LBS AWAY FROM WHAT I WEIGHED WHEN I WAS NINE MONTHS PREGNANT, WITH MY LAST CHILD.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. SOMEBODY PLEASE SEND ME SOME WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT BEFORE I GOOOOOOOO CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Feel heartened, and not alone. I've gained and lost hundreds of lbs. And now, here I am again. But -- this time -- I caught it early. In my book, that's a success ... even IF I do have to lose weight one more time. Consider the fact that you: 1. are even a SparkPeople member; 2. thought to post this plea for help -- which means you really want support. Others might just hide and comfort-food eat; 3. and all the other successes you've had, whether you've been inconsistent or not. The goal is fitness, not thinness. Along the way you'll get thinner, but don't focus on that. Focus on feeling good about small steps. That's what I'm FINALLY doing after several decades of up and down weight patterns. I'm mean, talk about being thick headed. I'm just proud of you for reaching out. Sounds like you are ready to make some new decisions. You don't have to wait until tomorrow; you can start where you are right now. Not all at once. Just small steps in the right direction. Good going!

I understand completely.
Yesterday, I was busy brow-beating myself for not exercising more than 4 days @wk (that's my average). I gave myself the speech that I could lose weight much more quickly IF I WOULD JUST . . .
After much anguish - I decided that I just needed to be satisfied that I was doing the necessary things I needed to, to lose the weight in a safe, steady way AND.... I was doing it in a way that I enjoyed and could and would keep doing after all the weight came off!
But in the manner of a chronic 2nd guesser -- I am sure I will have to go over that point many times. (I am a slow learner - lol).
Whether it is the Doc or your ownself or well-meaning friends -- whoever -- stay focused on a good, healthy process of gaining a Live-It, not a Di-et.
Illigitimus non carborendum. . . which is latin for: "Don't let the ________ bring you down!"
Good Luck and keep me posted!

I'm so sorry about your news. I got similar news once at the doctor's office. It hurts. I know you are part of our W8Watchers Friends group. Let us hear from you. We're going to be there for you! And I'm also the leader of another WW's team that you might be interested in ... W8 Watchers at Home, Meetings, and On the Go! We talk about what goes on at meetings so even if you aren't going, you can get the benefit of meeting topics. Both teams are running some challenges ... different ones. Take a look and hopefully we can help.
I've been 300 pounds so I understand what a long journey to a healthy weight is like. I lost 150 pounds on WW's. I've regained 40 pounds and I'm back on WW's to get it off. We can do it together!
I'm here for you!!! Big hugs and confidence in you! YOU are soooooo worth the effort!

Oh, hon, I am so sorry that you are struggling :( I know it's hard, but try and focus on the good choices you DO make rather than those that you don't. Try not to be discouraged when you do something you are unhappy with and focus on the good choices you have made. I find that keeping a journal often helps me figure out what's going on when I have trouble staying on track. If I just start writing, I often shock myself by what ends up coming up.... it's often something that I wouldn't have THOUGHT was causing an issue. If you are struggling with eating when you are upset, happy, stressed etc. you might want to check out the Emotional Eaters SparkGroup- they often have great discussions on how to control eating when it's tied to emotions and not hunger. Feel free to SparkMail me if you need to chat :) Hang in there and you'll get back on track!
