6 weeks in

Saturday, May 12, 2012

Well I am six weeks into my weight loss journey and I have hit a brick wall UGH. I am feeling a little disappointed I started off doing great and lost 15 pounds and 1 whole size in my first month, now I have gained some of that back. I am frustrated with myself; because I know what I need to do and how to do it and I even seen it working but still somehow got off track. I seem to be craving sugary things and lots of carbs, I have been trying to eliminate most carbs and sugary things and the harder I try the more my body craves them to the point that I get moody without them. I have seen what eating to many carbs and sugary things has done to me making me feel sluggish and tired all the time and even grumpy when I don’t have them. I still go for them, I know that this is mostly done out of habit, and habits are very hard to change. I have learned a lot about myself during this time, things that I already knew and was scared to admit and there were something’s that I had no idea was going on. That is what this journey is all about finding me and it is not always going to be easy, if it were I wouldn’t be overweight in the first place. The difference this time is I am not allowing myself to find an excuse to give up I matter too much to just throw in the towel. I am on a journey that I am taking step by step, I am in a race a race for my health and it doesn’t matter if I finish first or how slow I run it only matters that I get going and finish it. Good luck to you all where ever you are on your journeys and remember if you stumble or even fall just pick yourself up brush yourself off and keep moving forward God Bless emoticon

    It is normal to go through these stretches. But you can be strong. Water and I find fresh fruit also helps. With summer coming on, a lot of fruit should be in season. Just take it one day at a time. Good luck.

    I too am a carb addict. The more I think about it the worse it gets. Try drinking a glass of water before you go for that carb. I have heard that sometimes you are dehydrated but you think you are hungry. You eat but you are still dehydrated so you keep thinking you are hungry. The nice thing about this idea even if it isn't a dehydration issue and you are just eating out of compulsion you will probably eat less and you get in some of your daily water. emoticon
