Trying so hard to keep on track.....HELP!

Sunday, June 23, 2013

I am in a slump right now. I lost 80 pounds in the first year (Jan. 2012 - Jan. 2013) I have gone up and down since then and I have only lost 5 pounds since January.....this is not acceptable to me. I need help and I am hoping there is someone out there with a similar situation that I can answer to. I think I need to be accountable to someone.
My husband is losing weight with me but he just kind of goes along with the program....if I am doing well, he is doing well. If I say "Lets get chinese buffet and the heck with the plan"...he goes right along with it, instead of saying " are you sure you want to do that?"
I am hoping someone out there can recognize my situation and be willing to bounce ideas off of each other and share support.
I still have about 80 pounds to lose, I am 60 years old, kind of a hippie, live in a very remote location off the grid, try (TRY) to eat healthy, love veggies and fruit, love art, decor and am kind of obssesive about organizing (control freak!!!)
Thanks for listening.

    I don't have huge, unreachable goals. Just to be healthier and also "not be the fattest person in the room". I can really relate to that. How do you handle temporary set backs? How do you keep your motivation?

    I also lost a lot of weight my first year and then went through the motions for about 1 1/2 years. Up 1 down 2 up 3 down 1. You get the idea. In Jan. of this year I was very angry and stressed and decided that enough of this.. Who do I think I am fooling?
    So I started out with a vengeance again. Really exercising, tracking food and I am down 23 pounds. More that all of last year. Fast? no. Easy? no. Perfect 100% of the time? Of course not. I also don't feel the drive I had in Jan. right now. However, I have a family reunion 7/20 and I do NOT want to be the fattest one there. Most of these people have not seen me since my weight loss. I want to drop some jaws.
    Just keep on keeping on.

    The only good thing about slumps is that the only way out is UP! God Bless YOU! Vic.
