Oh, my dear, dear Sparkfriends! What do I even say??? My heart is aching and I'm THOROUGHLY disgusted with myself! I gained 5#'s this week, and now I've gained 13#'s since hitting my goal weight in April 2011. NONE of my clothes are going to fit soon! And the WORST part is that I can't seem to get motivated!
Can you PLEASE help me! I feel like a lost puppy! I feel like a MUSH head--like I can't even think of what to do! I know it's silly and ridiculous, but it's the truth!
I did read something encouraging that gave me hope from an article entited, "Backsliding or Thin for Life?"
"The fact that many were in their 50s and 60s invalidates the myth that losing weight becomes impossibly difficult as one ages. Many reached lengthy plateaus before they broke through to their ideal weight. At some point, most regained a few pounds before correcting course and returning to the desired range."
Here is the link to the article:
I'm sure a few pounds WAS NOT 13#'s, but it still encouraged me and gave me hope that I'm not going to regain all my weight back. HOWEVER, I must act NOW, and I have no desire and no direction! I'm turning to Jesus, and now to my SparkFriends who the LORD may use to say 'just the right thing' to spur me to action.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
P.S. I CERTAINLY don't want to go back to this!!!!
