Trying with trepidation

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

I abandoned SP for a few months and I'm back trying to lose 6lb. Sounds easy? It's not, I haven't got the will.
Still off the antidepressant, it's been a difficult year in more than one way. Getting better, but all the summer clothes are tight and it bothers me.
Not sure if this will work, after 4 years of SP I seem to have hit a wall of tediousness with tracking weight and cals.
Will do my best, trying to find my pink glasses.
Life is good

    emoticon I have come off anti-depressants too and
I still have to cope with demons from time to time but we
do our best and carry on. You will get your motivation back.

    I'm back, too. The enthusiasm is lacking but I know it needs to be done and that it's for my own good. Letting myself be ruled by faith and not feelings! Glad to see you're hanging in there.

    It's great to hear from you Claudia - though I understand how you came to have a break from SP and know what you mean about finding the tracking a challenge, particularly when you too have had a rough year. I guess it comes down to taking each day as it comes and doing the best you can. I hope everything improves for you!

Take care - blessings and hugs,

    It DOES get tedious! But we have to figure out what works for us NOW, right? I'm glad to see you--I've missed you a lot. emoticon & I'm sure you will find your groove.

    There are times that 5 or 6 pounds can be a killer. But you are thinking about what to do and are still engaging, not giving up. That is certainly a start! Someone commented on another blog to the effect "Being obese/overweight is hard. Losing/maintaining is hard. We need to pick our hard.". That really made an impact on me. Tracking food and exercise every day isn't most people's idea of fun, but for some of us it is necessary. Good luck figuring out what is going to work best for you. We are all different and may have different paths to weight loss. Be gentle with yourself as you figure out your plan. Take care.

    At age 67, my motto is "Never give up." However, I also have mental illness and take medication regularly. For me, it's an illness, like any other...I have my good times and my bad. I'm no longer a compulsive overeater because I was finally able to surrender and eat healthy, measured portions of good food. Suffer no more! Life just whips along and I'm grateful to wake up each morning. I practice self care and try to pass it on when I can. However, the only person I can change is me. As corny as this sounds, I know it to be true.

Best wishes your way. emoticon
