Weight Blues

Saturday, April 21, 2012

So, I'd like to start off saying, I know this is gonna seem like needless whining. But, I've just been feeling down.

I'm still losing weight, not as steadily as I was at first, but still, it's going. And I'm proud of the 85 pounds I've lost, and all the work I've done.

But, I'm just feeling like I can't see it. I think I'm just ready to wake up and look in the mirror and not see a fat girl. I'm ready to not feel fat anymore. Comedian Ralphie May once said that he had lost 200 pounds, but a fat man losing a fat man is still a fat man (paraphrased). That's how I feel. Anyone else feel that way?

Anyone feel that even after a year and 85 pounds (or whatever work you've put into this change) that even after the payoff and everything, you're just ready for the end to be here?

    Sometimes I think that Others still see the "Fat Girl" when they look at me. The Truth is, I am the one who still sees her.
emoticon Congratulations on the Progress you have made so far. You will have 'down/blue' days, but they will become fewer and farther between. Keep active, especially on those Bad Days. The Exercise Endorphins chase the Blues away better than anything else for me.

    It's hard to keep motivated sometimes - this is a journey, not a quick fix diet. You are doing fantastic! Hang in there.

    If this were a diet, there would be an end. But it's a lifestyle change, which is forever. Can I say I am SOOO envious of you losing 85 lbs?! I know I will get there, but my hat is off to you! Work on toning, celebrate the smaller clothing, and be patient. You are indeed making HUGE strides!

    i started gaining some of my weight back and i feel like complaing. i know it is from my bad choices, but i still feel down.

i know i just need to refocus more on what i was doing right and to put real effort into it, not just go through the motions. most of us that joined sparkpeople have had the weight blues, otherwise we wouldn't be here.
