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!

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!

  Keep your chin up! You can do it! Try doing one exercise you can do then build up to two and try going for a walk it will help. emoticon emoticon
