10,000-14,999 SparkPoints 11,717


Monday, March 28, 2011

So I started using sparkpeople in Jan. 2010. By August I had lost over 25lbs. And was stoked to make my goal of 145lbs. I hurt my foot in September and it is still hard to get a workout in. I have gained 9 lbs. and am sooo frusterated with myself. Somedays I just want to give up. I weighed in this morning and almost cried when I saw 154 on the scale. I thought I had a good week last week, but guess not. I know I need to be proud that just 15 months ago I weighed 172 but it is still hard how fast the weight can creep back on. I am going to try to make smaller goals until summer and see what happens! emoticon

    Hang in there. Keep looking at how far you have come. I joined the same time as you did and am much farther away from my goal. But life happens, and we have to deal with what confronts us, not what we hoped would happen. So continue to focus on how far you have come, and believe you will get where you want to be. This is for you, and you are already proving you can do it. Have a good week.

    I'm just getting close to my goal and finding the way to keep this off permanently is just very intimidating. But you CAN do this...it's soo important to take care of yourself! I just had surgery on my foot and know how frustrating it can be.
    Just don't keep sliding... YOU CAN DO IT!!! You ARE worth it!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am so sorry to hear about your injury. Are there any activities that you can still participate in? Walking maybe? Keep your head. Please do not give up, you can still reach your goals.
