The last three weeks

Sunday, April 17, 2011

I havent lost weight in three weeks and I dont know how I feel about it. I know that its because I havent been trying as hard to keep on track with things. I've still been excercising a couple days a week and eating good the majority of the weeks but then for some reason I will just lose steam and for a couple days each week I will eat like I did before I started this journey. I know that I can lose this last 15lbs if I just give myself the chance. Looking back I honestly dont know what happened. I can't seem to come up with a reason for why I've just been lacking the will power I need to get this done. I guess it could have something to do with the fact that part of me still wants that old lifestyle back. I enjoyed that lifestyle to a certain degree. I enjoyed eating fast food, drinking tons of pop and shoving candy into my mouth like it was air. There were also things I didn't like about that lifestyle and that's why I've been working to change it but there is still part of me that wants to go back to it and I don't think this is a struggle that's going to go away any time soon. But I won't let myself come this far only to gain back the 21lbs I've lost. I won't let myself give up. I will reach my goal because I deserve it. I deserve to feel good about my body and to not have to be worried about what people are thinking of me. I will let myself get to my goal weight. Here's to having control over myself emoticon

    UGH! I'm in the same boat as you! 3 weeks with no change...and it's because I like to slack on the weekend and over eat/drink. And every week I start off strong, just to ruin it on the weekends. So frustrating! I've decided to buckle down for the next 2 weeks and really try hard to stay under 1600 calories. I've also given up alcohol until my 10k race in May. I decided if I don't meet my goals one day, then I will give $5 of my new wardrobe money to Avera's breast cancer research.
    Stay positive because: emoticon

    I've hit a couple plateau periods like that, and sometimes it's just your body playing games and being its unpredictable self. What I like to do is really tighten up on everything - get back to tracking every gram, make sure I'm pushing my workouts as hard as I can, etc. Even if it doesn't help with the actual weight loss, it makes me feel better to know that I'm doing everything I can. That doesn't mean going to extremes or even changing the plan at all... just making sure I'm actually following what I say I'm doing.

    Hope you see some progress soon!

    I agree that it's not easy, although it did get better for me when I recognized that I had chosen to make changes for good reasons and reasons that were incredibly important to me. Occasionally, I look at what some of my friends eat and drink and kind of wish, but then I shudder with what would happen to all my work and plans if I did.

    So you aren't alone with the challenges. You CAN take control and meet your goals!
