I've Gained Ten Pounds and I Hate It

Monday, May 07, 2012

I've gained back ten pounds since September, and I hate it. I hate it because:
- my new smaller clothes feel tight and uncomfortable
- I'm anxious that my weight will continue to creep up, and I don't want that!
- I feel that I've lost control of myself, and I value being competent and on top of things
- I'm afraid people will notice and some of those people will feel glad
- I like feeling proud of myself, and I'm not feeling proud of myself right now.

I want to feel good about myself again. I want to feel hopeful. I want to feel proud of myself. I want to go shopping again for even smaller clothes!

    I feel your frustration! Always know that you are not alone! I am feeling similar due to my weight being up again after losing recently. Try not to dwell too much on the past and make today a new day! Heck, even make the next meal a brand new start!

    You've caught yourself and that's what going to allow you to stop this slide IN ITS TRACKS!!! You can do it with baby steps. Oh, yes, you can!

    I've been fighting a 5-lb weight gain. Once you get near your goal it gets very hard to lose anything. I feel your pain emoticon

    I miss your pictures from your walks.

    we're in the same boat! except i think i gained my 10 since january! it sticks beacuse you get all excited to lose weight and buy new clothes and then you gain a little back and those new clothes that you felt amazing in start to feel too tight! i'm also afraid that my weight will keep creaping up. i have this cycle i keep spinning on. i lose 5lbs during the week and then gain them back during the weekend binges...and i always feel horrible. my goal this week is to do great all week and come in on monday to work and to sparkpeople and post a successful weekend blog! we can SO do this! ya with me?!? emoticon
