a not so good week so far--need support

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

not doing so good this week.

i am so aggravatted with myself.

did so good last week. i did everything right and by the end of the week, i was exhausted.

sat i decided to treat myself but i didnt track anything sat or sunday.

i went to 2 parties and said no to cake and a lot of other goodies. i ended up haveing an ice cream cone early in the day and 2 donuts in the evening. i guess that might have been too much of a treat.

sunday, went to fazolis and said i was gonna have a salad but once i got in the restaurant, there was no way i was gonna have a salad. i know i ate way too much there.

so here we are in the next week, i have gained back all 4 lbs plus 1 more. i am soo mad at myself for blowing it over the weekend. i am haveing a hard time getting re motivated like i was last week.

also, the dr has me slowing going off my effexor. that plus sticking with no sugar, is making me tired, grumpy, and not motivated at all.

thank you for listening to my rant.

    emoticon forward. Look to the future and not the past. We all have those days and it is extra hard with the changes in your meds.

    Wishing you an emoticon week this week!

    Let the past go. Focus on today, on this moment, on this meal, on this workout. Yesterday's gone and tomorrow is only an imagination... today, you can have an effect.

    Keep running the race....you will always have bumps and hurdles. It's how you bounce back from those challenges to will make a difference.

    Glad you were able to vent your frustration here...sometimes you just need to get that out. However, try to keep your head up and (as many here have said) pick up and move forward! We all have bad weeks. Just remember how you also recently had a good week, and you can do it again! emoticon

    It may just be water weight. Drink plenty of water and give it a couple days and re-weigh...don't give up keep moving forward.

    A bad weekend happens to everyone, and I am sure your sudden 'new' gain will be history in a few days.

    I hope you started this week with a clean slate, and don't forget to be kind to yourself!

    That was the weekend; in the past (it happens to me sometimes as well) SO we just pick ourselves back up and move forward. Don't beat yourself up about it (I know that it's hard not to) Today is a new day!!! "This too shall pass"

    Hang in there! There's no way that's "real" weight gain! Remember why you wanted to do this! You can recommit and next week you'll have "lost" most of what you think you've gained! Have a great Tuesday! You deserve it!

    Those sort of things happen, but remember there is a lot on your plate-coming off effexor is hard, and the no sugar- just try to be gentle with your self, work towards your goals, and keep tracking. I hope this week gets better for you!

    I had a water weight gain of four pounds in one day this weekend. if I had actually eaten 14,000 calories I would have remembered that. I know with both my head and my heart that the scale is only reflecting my relationship with gravity - so no biggie! I just kept my eye on the prize, continued to eat within my calorie range, track my nutrition, drink my water, and move my body. In two days the scale reflected the difference.

    You got this!

    I think we all have times like this.Most likely what you have is water weight.Everyone has flucuations in there weight.Just focus on turning your week into a better one and know that we cant eat perfect all the time and we will make mistakes.I ate like a pig this weekend and made some bad choices too,but its in the past.Just focus on what you can do today and set some goals to get back on track.You can do this.

    My entire journey has been good one week & bad the next. Don't let a bad week get you discouraged! It doesn't get any easier, I can tell you this from experience but the most important part is having those good weeks :) and not allowing the bad ones make you feel guilty in any way!

    Hope you have a great day!

    Ok, you had a bad weekend and you learned from it. Beating yourself up doesn't do anything but keep you down. Deep breath and do one thing at a time today. Listen to yourself and take the day slow. It's day 1, tonight look back on what you DID get done today. Do the same tomorrow.

    You've got this.

    First, the weekend is behind us, so focus on making better choices today and forgive yourself for what you cannot change. Plus, I doubt you actually gained 4 or 5 lbs... that would be 14,000 - 17,500 calories OVER your calorie range... so chalk it up to bloating and give yourself a break.

    Cutting down on Effexor has a lot of icky side effects - been there myself. Try to listen to your body and try to get in some good exercise (even just for a few minutes every day) so your body ups your natural serotonin and norepinephrine. Keep trying and you'll find something that works for you.
