It was bound to happen eventually

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Suddenly I can't seem to stay on the path. I have the same attitude about being worth it but I seem to have no control. It must have something to do about my daughter getting ready to go back to college because that is the only thing that has changed lately. I haven't been walking or jogging in over a week. I have indulged in candy and salty snacks. I know better and have been excited to buy a smaller size. Its just not working. Or maybe I should say I'm not working. Every time I step on the scale I expect to see a gain. So far I've only seen a quarter of a pound but I need to turn back and go for that next 10 before I'm trying to lose those same pounds over again. I seem to be stuck. I'm just going to keep trying to hang in there. I could use some help but I don't know what help to ask for. I guess I'm going to look at the articles and try to ask some of my groups for help.

    It sounds like you are on a downward spiral of having something you deem as "bad" and feel bad about it and dwell on it by looking at the scale.

    When that gain isn't present you may be eating more of the "bad" stuff because you didn't see a gain or not as bad as you thought so you allow yourself to indulge a bit more and start the cycle over.

    You need to not feel bad about your choices, don't cry over spilt milk, right?

    Make decisions beforehand about what you can eat or research how many calories a certain food it so you know what will keep you in your range.

    As for exercise, just do it! If structured exercise is turning you off simply be as active as possible, take the stairs, park a little further away, etc.

    Weight loss takes a lot of thought and effort but it really depends on your willingness to commit.

    The only TRUE failure is not regaining a pound but to give up completely.

    Good luck on your journey, if you need help or have any questions I would be happy to help!
