I think I may have pushed myself too hard today

Friday, April 12, 2013

I went for a walk while my youngest daughter was at preschool and figured I would take another 2 mile walk, but while I was walking I felt angry at myself for letting myself get this large, so i kept pushing my self. Then I ended up walking 3.56 miles and had a hard time making it back to my car. Im just so out of shape and so disappointed with myself. I just want to lose this weight so bad! Im now so sore and stiff and have blisters :( Maybe i should just stick with the 2 miles. Hope this gets easier

    The walking does get easier. I PROMISE. It's incredibly important not to beat yourself up. You didn't gain the weight overnight so don't expect to lose it overnight either. Beyond that, like most of us you used the food to cope. Be gentle and kind to yourself. Explore the reasons you overate and didn't exercise rather than feeling guilty about it. Some part of you believed that it was better to overeat than to deal what it felt was dangerous. That part of yourself was trying to protect you in its own distorted way. Keep exploring and keep taking care of yourself. I wish you the best!

    I do this sometimes too. Just ease yourself into going a little farther maybe every week. Maybe next week you could do 2 and a quarter miles or so. Way to have strong motivation!!! I wish I had some of that!
