This is how I have been feeling lately...
I’ve been hiding from exercise: I’m in the fitness protection program.
I need to get back on track - just not sure how? Yesterday was a long day - came home sick to my stomach again. Spent a large portion of the evening throwing up again!!! I just don't understand why I am not recovering. I did not go to hospital as all they do is give me a shot and send me home.
I am the same weight as last week - which is Ok as I know I am holding fluid, my boots were tight when I got home. I am frustrated with myself as I often talk with people about poor body image, self esteem and how our self worth is not tied to what we weigh. But find myself getting sucked into it at times. I know that there is more to me than what the scale says on an intellectual level anyway, just struggling at times with the emotional connection.

    Laura...did you go back to the doctor? I know that you were supposed to within a month? What did they say? The throwing it because you've eaten something too rich or fatty? I know that as I am losing weight, my system cannot handle the things I used to eat anymore (which is good), but experiencing a stomach ache is one thing. Throwing up is another all together. Take baby steps to get back on the fitness road. Do you have a set of hand weights? If you don't, use 2 16 oz water bottles. Do some simple bicep and tricep curls while you're sparking. No, it isn't cardio, but it is still fitness!! Can you take short walks? I think the key is not to make it too strenuous and to build up again. Are you going to do the next BLC? It wouldn't be the same without you....

    Sorry you are struggling so! I wish the doctors could figure out what is wrong and get it fixed!! I really have a hard time with the scale too. I love the encouragement of BLC but I have focused on the scale in an unhealthy way.

    know that when you are feeling better you will get back to exercise. It is kind of hard when anything you do causes you pain and potentially puts you in the hospital. Can you go for walks or anything light like that?
    Hope things get better SOON!! emoticon
