Sooo frustrated........

Monday, July 23, 2012

OK so I have been at this "health lifestyle thing " for a total of 3 weeks now. Week one I was soooo motivated. week 2 I surprised my self with great weight loss. Now I am in week three and not feeling so good. I am thinking to myself " Can I really do this? Am I just fooling myself." I want this soo bad but I am afraid of failure. Not only for myself but for those around me. Since, I have started my weight loss program people around me have been totally supportive and are cheering for my success. I just cant let them down. But this is really hard. I have been dedicated to my 3day a week workout sessions before for I go to work. I really enjoy them. The problem is food. It is my weakness, especially bread (corn bread to be exact) I had two boxes in the cabinet and promised that after they are gone I will not buy anymore ( I really don't like wasting food).To make matters worst It is "that time of the month" and I got on the scale and gained 2lbs : ( My friend told me don't worry that blotting will happen during that time of the month but It this point I just don't want to see it. I also have been much more stressed than normal and can tell that stress triggers me to eat more. I know that this is a hurtle that I need to get over but it is hard. I needed advice on how to deal with these situations differently. I want success to happen but it hard. Is it just me or do others experience these set backs?

    If you can remember to take small steps you will do well. We can not change everything at one time, so please don't fret - you are working out and that is going well - and add more fruit and veggies - that may help you as well.

    You are loved by many especially with the support that you are receiving - follow your path, don't worry about letting them down - this journey is not won by the swift, but the one who endures until the end. Blessings to you.

    I no longer weigh during (TOM). I've had good check points with (TOM) and I don't gain, but what I do notice is I'm very mindful during the week of (TOM). I don't load on crappy food during (TOM) because I know (TOM) can throw you off. Candy cravings are super high on (TOM) with me, and also salty things, so I do good with the self control. I also don't think about it as much. You know, the week after week and failing or failure. Done that in the past, and that little voice in my head named (Ucan't) had always been there talking in my ear. you can't do this, says Ucan't. You're going to fall flat on your face, says Ucan't. You have to get that little voice out of your head and start thinking positive. NO! you are not going to let anyone down. The main person you should focus on is you. No one else. Just you! So, do what you do best love. Shine... emoticon

    I totally understand. You are doing great! I know it is hard with stress. I have posted a link to help with stress on the SP Class team where it has "dealing with stress." Here is also a link for the message boards about the time of the month. I hope it helps. Let me know if it doesn't come through. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I find just going outside and looking up at the sky cheers me up. I know this sounds weird, but it really works to lift your spirits. Hopefully, it's a really blue sky. The world is amazing and I think to myself that I am alive and that I can do anything. Even tackle corn bread - and whatever else is tempting you.

    (BTW thanks for commenting on one of my blog post)

    That time of the month pounds are just water, it will go away. Drink plenty of fluids, it helps. One meal at a time. Don't think about it all the time. Just when your plate is in front of you. Try leaving some behind. Even if it is only one bite, leave it. Avoid alcohol, they are just empty calories. Good luck!!
