Sometimes we feel like just giving up....

Sunday, May 29, 2011

Hi everyone

I need a moment to vent.

Have you heard of the story where some of the Biggest Loser contestants who lost an extreme amount of weight and then gained it back. I wondered how the heck is was possible?

Well, I am beginning to understand.

I am finding myself going in a circle for the past few months. I will gain, lose, gain and then lose.

Sometimes we have to sit back and figure out what we are doing wrong. The weight will not come on that easily, not if you are doing everything right.

I found myself cheating a few times and not exercising the way I should. At the same time, I am playing this denial game that "oh I can lose it next week"

I'm tired of lying to myself. With all the hard work I've put in to lose this weight so far, I refuse to go back. Giving up is not an option for me. I have wasted the early years of my life being unhappy with my body. It's my time to shine. So, I'm going to stick to it and keep moving. Enough with the excuses.

Ok....done venting.

  So glad I found your blog! Hope you are doing well. I just joined SP again a couple of days ago and I'm loving this community. The most I have ever lost was about 50 pounds in one stretch, but it is soooo easy to put it back on if you let your guard down. So important to have accountability and support. You've done a great job so far! Stick with it and you will reach your goals. I have a lot left to lose, but I'm trying to concentrate on being healthy rather than a number on the scale. That number will come eventually! Nice to meet you on here ... and good luck!

    I can relate to that! I've been working so hard and lately I hear myself saying to myself "it's ok if I eat some of that because I shouldn't be so strict" then when I see the scale not move or move up a bit I regret it! The good thing is that we are aware of what we are doing and that we are not giving up! emoticon

    Your honesty is refreshing and I am working to get this weight off. Thank you for sharing and even more so for putting a demand on yourself to remain committed to such health goals. More importantly, you are not excusing yourself which can be easy to do when you have had such a successful weight loss. Here's a emoticon for you and keep are the reason some of us believe!

    I saw the same thing last year and wondered how is that possible. I mean, why would you work so hard and then just gain it back? Well, I have gained 15 of my 65 pounds back and so I can see how easy it can be. I too, have thought that I will take care of that extra pound next week, but they add up so quickly. I have been really careful lately an slowly getting back into good habits to start moving in the right direction once more.

    It is a journey for life and this will happen, the point is to become so accustomed to eating heathy and exercising that nothing else is an option. Sure, you will eat what you want to sometimes, you are human but the key is to make it once in a while and not too often.

    It is a life long process. Although I have a ways to go before I get to where I need to be I know it will be hard to keep it off. I guess that's why it is so important to truly change our lifestyle choices for good. Glad you are keeping yourself accountable and that your not giving up on yourself! emoticon

    The healthy lifestyle is a journey with no end...every road trip is frought with flat tires and overheating radiators, so there's no reason this trip shouldn't be too! Don't beat yourself up too much for being human...we all make mistakes, its going to happen, and its how you deal with them that makes the difference!! You've kept going, stumbles and all, and that is what is going to make the difference in the end!!

    Good afternoon. I am one of those people that have lost a large amount of weight to only gain it back. Not once but three times. emoticon

It really is about changing our minds, lifestyles and hearts. emoticon
