I can achieve this, we can do it !

Monday, April 22, 2013

For the last couple weeks ive not been feeling as movated as the first few weeks ,when I first begun my weight loss journey I was very inspired by all the great tools and members on this site as I still am! Un fortunately my personal life is not going so well and the loss of our adorable cat Blue, has really gotten the best of my emotions lately. I have found myself turning to food for comfort at times . Although I still track them, I usually have more than I account for. I havent seen the scale move much in 2 or 3 weeks, this doesn't set to well in the emotional area either. Its also hard to be movated to exercise as well. I do have a friend who is eager to walk with, when we both can get an hour or so to meet with each other, it always lifts my spirts when I get a good walk in.
Well today I planned to weigh in, gonna do this every 2 weeks cause it is discouraging to get on the scale daily or every other day and not see any progress. This morning I wasnt expecting much, but low and behold ive have lost about 2 more lbs. Makes it so much more inspiring , so I will keep doing what im doing and then some to continue to reach my goal,, to spite the nasty coments I have to deal with from my now roommate is all I can call him, for our relationship has been so dysfunctional for way to long, I am glad to be making this change in my life and hope to continue on this path.one change at a time turns into a big change in the long run. I am strong enough to handle all the obsticals that interfere with my challenge. Thank you for all your support at Spark as well, we can do what we put our minds to.

    So sorry to hear about your cat. I lost my cat a year ago .. and I was devastated! Took it really hard. Now I have another one who is just as awesome ... in HIS own way. emoticon I am an emotional eater also .. thats really how I packed on alot of my weight. Anyway, hang in there ... you're doing great!

    Wow, you have a lot going on to make this process hard! I'm an emotional eater too. It's such a hard habit to break! I'm sorry about your kitty, and sorry about your problems with your BF. (Maybe a *very* large weight loss is in your future?) Congratulations on those 2 lbs. I've never liked using the scale, so I think weighing every two weeks is a good idea. I like to use how my clothes fit. REBIRTHDIVA, your words helped me, and so did yours, STARFISH1961. Thanks!

    emoticon yes, you can! i struggle with what that dang scale says, it hasn't moved at all in over a month. emoticon but i keep on moving and making healthier choices. some days are much better than others. and it is understandable that you are mourning the loss of your beloved furry friend. just remember to be kind and loving to yourself. for me eating better and exercising have become acts of love to me for me. i love myself enough to keep going even when i really don't want to. and believe me, some days i really don't want to. emoticon
