Frustrated with December

Monday, December 10, 2012

I have lost 15 pounds since I've started my weight loss journey Oct. 15th! But this month I just feel really STRESSED!!! I've been trying to do my best fitting in workouts whenever I can but I feel myself slipping. I'm excersising less and eating a LOT more. I keep losing two lbs in a week and then the next I have gained it back. I am seriously frustrated. I don't have a work out buddy or anyone to hold me accountable! I just feel like with the stress of December and then my son's birthday is January 5th it's just too much stress right now. In turn I don't lose weight and eat more!

  how about being accountable to yourself? have you considered setting a one day goal? A goal that will help get you closer to where you're trying to go? You can do anything for one day can't you? then tomorrow you repeat and the next day and the next, etc. A daily goal may be: Today I will eat only at the table or today I will walk 30 mins between lunch & dinner or today I will eat fruit for a snack instead of chips. you get the idea.

    I am having the same problem. i seem to have lost the drive for exercise and I do more mindless eating. I just gotta take it one day at a time and just keep reminding myself of how far I've come and where I was 6 months ago. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    this is a lifestyle change and it doesn't come overnight. for me, I exercise to Destress. I feel so much better after I exercise, that I am then able to deal with the stress so much better. And a lot of times, it doesn't seem so bad anymore. dont' use the stress as a reason to quit changing. find snippets of time to do a workout. while you are watching tv, exercise during the work use your lunch hour to workout. take a walk with your son. My son's bday is three days after christmas, but I won't stress about birthdays anymore. I do what I can and I dont' spend a lot of money. i home make food, have people over, have pop and cake from a box. I quit spending too much money on birthdays after I ended up spending $200 for my daughter's birthday one year. never again. she didn't even appreciate it.

    IT'S A day by day, minute by mintue thing.

It's the mantra. I do want to look better. I do want to feel better. I don't want to be the fat girl. I want to live longer and be able to do more.

And it's something that needs to be said when the urge to eat hits. Food drink, pot, pills, a new boyfriend, (or get rid of the one already had), a shopping trip, and the rest of it doesn't fill the hole in our psyche. All that stuff does is create new problems. The old ones still exist.
