Feeling hopeless? Help.

Friday, April 26, 2013

This week has been hard for me. I haven't exercised, I've been straying from my food plan in the worse way, and today is just a bad day.

I have been at the same weight for years now. I had lost 12 lbs last summer, but gained it all back since November. I'm feeling like I'm never going to get into the habit of exercising, and eating properly. I feel like I'm never going to lose this weight. I know I can't give up. I will keep on trying, or hoping. I'm not sure whether I'm just wishing for a change or if I am really willing to make the change. I am diabetic. The doctor's say that my insulin dosages are extremely high. Has anyone overcome this feeling of hopelessness? If so, how?

    I agree with Steven, you have to find what you want to do. I never knew what that was until I found classical stretch.It is a no impact cardio and is harder than it looks, my hubby quit after the first couple minutes! I'm not a strong fit person with two back and a neck injury and I muddle through it! It's on PBS in the US. Not sure if you have it but Miranda Esmond White is Canadian so maybe you'll find her easily! I like the recumbent bike, but haven't done it since I started classical stretch. I was on a three month slump and gained four pounds when I found the exercise show. It saved me! I hope you find what works for you!
    We also juice fruits and veggies for breakfast, that's how we lost 30 lbs apiece and kept it off 18 months, though I have atleast 30 more that could go!

    Carolyn,

    I use to feel useless than I found the joy of just walking. If you could find some type of excersise that you enjoy it would make your journey so much easier. What I have seen with you is that you work out real hard for a day or two than give up. If you would just do 5 minutes of exercise 3 - 5 days a week, maybe you might see an improvement in your mind set and body and become more positive, baby steps!
